It’s not just the academic side of life that our students love – it’s the activities, sports and events they get involved in outside of the lecture halls too. Through our Students’ Union there is an eclectic array of clubs and societies (more than 150 at any one time) students can get involved in – spanning interests from Parkour to Harry Potter. Our sports teams compete in British Universities & Colleges Sports (BUCS) competitions and have enjoyed a number of trophy wins in BUCS competitions in recent years. Visit our Student Union page:

Extracurricular activities such as volunteering, work experience or contributing to student clubs and societies are formally recognised through The Lincoln Award, an initiative run jointly by the University and Students’ Union to help students develop their skills, knowledge and experience and stand out from the crowd to future employers.
