New for 2017 we are offering you the chance to be an advocate for the University of Lincoln and inspire potential future graduates. We can offer you the chance to develop your presentation and communication skills whilst collaborating with an academic from your course. The Programme allows you to collaboratively create material which will be delivered to Further Education students completing their A-Levels. Not only will the programme increase your networking and communication skills but you will inform potential students about your University experience and promote the curriculum.
Did you know that your participation hours can be logged as volunteer hours and contribute towards The Lincoln Award? . Find out more about The Lincoln Award.
