Accelerate bachelors studies without a foundation programme
The foundation programme provided at the Lincoln University is unlike the traditional one - it is a fast and flexible pathway programme. They are the Certificate in University Studies (CUS), and the Diploma in University Studies (DUS) which consists of two (DUS2) to three (DUS3) semesters.
Every year there are three intakes. These intakes provide pathways to bachelors degree programmes in the months of February, July, and November.
Students who start with the CUS programme can finish their bachelors degrees in a span of 3 years with the DUS2 programmes, and 3.5 years with the DUS3 programmes.
With Lincoln’s unique and accelerated pathway, students can potentially save up to a year’s expenses which would otherwise be spent in tuition and living, when compared with the traditional foundation plus bachelors pathway.
The University also provides financial aid in the form of the English for Further Study Awards and the Pathway Scholarship for these programmes. For more information, read the scholarship section below.
