International students sightsee in London

A group of international MSc Computer Science students receive an all-paid trip to London to end the programme year on a high.

The social trip aims to help our international students feel at home and included in the British culture.

Check out their photos from their sightseeing of Westminster’s Big Ben and London Eye, Emirates Stadium, and Chelsea’s Stamford Bridge.

MSc Computer Science lecturer Bashir Al-Diri hopes that it will encourage other international students to visit and apply to the University of Lincoln.

“All of our MSc Computer Science students are international students and I thought that a trip after completing their programme modules will be a good way refresh to their minds.”

Students to showcase work

Computer Science students will be exhibiting their projects during a two-day event on Wednesday, 14th May to Thursday, 15th May.

All students, staff and visitors are welcome to the event which will include presentations from Postgraduate by Research students and final year undergraduates.

This year the focus of the conference was on Methods and Methodologies, the use and applications of which unites postgraduate students across subjects and disciplines.

The aim of the conference was to provide an opportunity for students to share and critically evaluate the research methods and methodologies used to create knowledge in their subject area, and for perspectives and ideas to be challenged in a safe and secure academic environment.

The students gave some oral presentations to the conference attendees, in addition to the posters presented.

Dr Amr Ahmed, Senior Lecturer in the School of Computer Science, said: “It was nice to see increasing attendance and representation from the Lincoln School of Computer Science. Thanks to all who contributed. Hope you also enjoyed the food!”
