Connect with the Curriculum
Connect with our students and academic colleagues across 4 large Colleges; Arts, Social Science, Science and Lincoln’s International Business School. Employers have the opportunity to set real life industry challenges, offer industry insights and opportunities to shape and inform student learning.
We offer a project model which provides students with real world experience and employers with real ideas and solutions. For each project we invite an employer partner to share a brief. We allocate students into multi-disciplinary teams and support their development over an 8 week period. Student will complete these projects within our Lincoln Award framework and receive support from us throughout the process. For each project we invite our employer partner to join us at the start, to introduce the brief, and at the end to assess the student presentation, this will total a 3 hour time commitment.

Remote Mock Assessment Centres
The Lincoln Award is our employability framework designed to support students develop and learn how to demonstrate their employability skills. Click here to find out more about the Lincoln Award.
Engage with our most proactive students completing the award by joining one of our Assessment Centres. This initiative is run online and only requires a 2 hour time commitment from yourselves. We will host and look after all the logistics. As well as providing a great experience for the students, it will also raise your profile and could support your recruitment pipeline. We are looking for employer partners to join us between November – June each year.
