Does the College have an accommodation on campus?

No, we don't have any College accommodation. If you are an international student please contact the international team at international@lincolncollege.ac.uk

I didn’t pass my GCSE Maths and/or English exam

If you are aged between 16 and 19 and didn’t pass your GCSE Maths and/or English exam it is required that you enroll on a course and study this alongside. 

If your chosen course required a passing grade in GCSE Maths or English we may need to transfer your offer to a lower level course.
