Undergraduate Open Day – the verdict.


A very satisfied (slightly exaggerated) audience


Well, this is my first day back in the office in what feels like AGES. I’ve just got back from Latitude Festival – I had an amazing few days seeing some fantastic live music, comedy, poetry and theatre. Four loads of washing later and I think I have just about got rid of the mud out of my clothes! So now it’s back to reality… Continue reading


July next week? Already!!!

Fees and Funding


Nicola and I are back in the office! If only briefly! The week promises more events, driving around the country and bringing the delights of Lincoln and the University to prospective students.

I have really enjoyed the last week, despite being tiring and long it was nice to take some responsibility and have the freedom and independence to utilise the new knowledge and skills we have gained over the last two months.

Today is busy and therefore my post will have to be brief, I hope that after the rush I can sit down and reflect on the past few days and write a much more comprehensive account of the events that we attended. Continue reading

Sorry for the lack of post yesterday – we were here there and everywhere. So today’s blog is coming from two interns… first up it’s Emma!

Hope everyone enjoyed their long Jubilee weekend 🙂 Yesterday was full of all things Student Support – I had my first taste of dealing with a large amount of enquiries by myself! I have taken phone calls and emails before, but this was a whole new experience, running from the phone, to the front desk and back to my desk again really tested my juggling skills. With a little bit of team work between myself and Helen, the student funding adviser, we kept control of the office. All good fun though and very good practice for when our new set of students arrive in September! In the midst of this madness, myself and Nicola gave a prospective student a campus tour – thankfully the weather held out and we had some sunshine! It was a great chance to talk one on one to a student, answer their questions and of course, show off our lovely campus! Continue reading
