We will update here any planned upcoming Offer Holder Days.

What is an Offer Holder Day?

An offer holder day is an event where you can visit the institutions that you have received an offer from. This day gives you the chance to get a deeper insight into your chosen degree through a range of activities, alongside other students who have also got an offer to study on the same course as you.  

Offer holder days are invite-only events for students who have made an application and received an offer.   

An offer holder day will be tailored to the subject that you will be studying and give you the chance to explore your chosen course and the university in much more detail. 


Offer holder days will give you the chance to:  

  • Meet our teaching staff 

  • Visit the buildings and rooms you’ll be taught in

  • Explore the facilities like the Library and HE Common Room

  • Attend subject-specific sessions where you’ll have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have


Car Parking

Car parking is available on campus on a first come first serve basis.

We want to make sure you are able to attend College to experience life on campus so if you are travelling more than 15 miles to campus we will contribute towards the cost to ensure your journey into Higher Education is achievable.

The travel fund amount you will be eligible for depends on the distance travelled to our campus in Lincoln and will be calculated by Lincoln College. The amount awarded will be based on the shortest route from your postcode to campus. Here's how much you can get:

10-50 miles - £35

If you request the travel fund, we will email you after you have attended the event to confirm your travel fund amount and bank details. The money will be paid to you by bank transfer.

After choosing a course, one of the biggest decisions will be where to live while studying.
