University seeks local postgraduate students

Masters degree: Despite an increase in applications, there are still postgraduate places available at the University of Lincoln.

Applications for postgraduate courses at the University of Lincoln have doubled this year, but there are still places left.

The university is encouraging local people to apply for the empty places on its postgraduate courses.

An open day for would-be postgraduate students is being held at the university on Wednesday, June 8, from 3-7pm.

The university wants local people and employers to attend the event to learn more about opportunities for postgraduate study, including many part-time options.

There are a wide range of postgraduate courses offered by the university, including many business courses, as well as the likes of engineering, conservation, psychology and computer science.

It has climbed 60 places in university league table rankings in recent years, now placed 57th out of 119 by the Guardian’s 2011 rankings.

Elly Sample, Director of Communications, Development and Marketing, said: “Forward-thinking employers are investing in staff with the skills and know-how to improve the performance of their organisation, drive efficiency and better position their business.

“Ensuring your CV demonstrates the skills and qualities that employers are looking for is a sure-fire way to make your application stand out from the crowd or help you progress up the career ladder.

“And what better way to do this than study at a university on your doorstep that’s now riding high in the national league tables?”
