Information for Students
The Field School offers you the chance to gain fully transferable academic credits, and is worth 5 US credits (or 10 ECTS or 20 UK credits). Credits will be awarded on completion of a fieldwork assignment, set at the beginning of the Field School. If you choose to earn credits, you will receive academic supervision and also be given access to our Digital Learning Environment, as well as the university’s well-resourced library and other facilities.
Optional self-catering accommodation during your attendance on the Field School is available in Bishop Grosseteste’s Halls dormitories at an additional cost (check-in on Sunday 10th June, check-out on Monday 9th July). Located in the historic heart of Roman and medieval Lincoln, the accommodation comprises individual bedrooms around a shared cooking and living space. The University’s dormitories are all located in the uphill district of Lincoln with a number of restaurants, food outlets and other shops within a few minutes’ walk. The excavation site is located across the street from student accommodation.
As archaeological excavation can be tough work, we operate a very civilized Monday to Friday working week. Having the weekend not only gives you time to rest but also offers you the perfect opportunity to explore Lincoln and beyond during your time with us!
