Lincoln Award – The Lincoln Geographer

The Lincoln Award is an employability framework designed to support, enhance and recognise extracurricular activity.  The Lincoln Geographer pathway has been designed as a bespoke package to support Geography students to develop their employability skills. 

Here at the School of Geography at the University of Lincoln, the course is designed to develop subject understanding and geographical skills progressively in the context of real-world problems, enabling students to apply their learning to contemporary global challenges. With Lincoln’s unique focus on the ‘safety and health of the inhabited Earth’ our mission is to deliver a degree that is relevant for environmental and societal challenges in the 21st century. Our aim is that students branch from their specific BSc/BA pathways and become interdisciplinary Geographers – a much needed attribute in the 21st century. With this in mind, the aim of the course here at Lincoln is to not just produce physical and human geographers but to produce ‘Lincoln Geographers’. Geographers with interdisciplinary knowledge, skills and experience to move forward in their careers. 

The Lincoln Award supports students to develop and learn how to demonstrate their employability skills; as well as taking part in activity you will be supported to reflect on your experiences and prepare to take on our Assessment Centre.  By completion of the award you will be confident communicating your skills to any employer!
