Higher Level Skills Courses

Lincoln College University Centre’s Higher Level Skills Courses offer students the chance to build on their existing qualifications with additional industry recognised qualifications and certificates.

We’ve designed our Higher Level Skill Courses to help upskill graduates in their chosen sector or industry by supporting the development of both academic knowledge and vocational skills.

Our classes are smaller which means our students can receive more one-to-one time with their tutors, as well as engaging debates and collaborative working with fellow students.

With our condensed timetables, students may choose to work while studying, look after family or enjoy a better study-life balance.

Plus, our university-level students graduate in an annual ceremony held in and around the grounds of the historic Lincoln Cathedral.

Links to the individual course pages can be found at the bottom of this page or via the course search.
