The University of Lincoln

The University has representation from more than 90 countries across the globe and has taken steps to support staff and students in understanding what cultural difference means and how we can learn from and with each other.

The University of Lincoln’s award-winning city centre campus provides a modern student-centred environment. Based on the picturesque Brayford Pool marina, everything you need is either on our campus or a short walk away. The University of Lincoln has been named among the UK’s best modern universities in the Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2016. We are proud of our reputation for providing a high-quality student experience underpinned by inspirational teaching.

The University has some of the most satisfied students in the UK. Lincoln is a top ten UK university for student satisfaction in the National Student Survey (NSS) 2016. In addition, Lincoln has been ranked number one in a range of NSS subject areas including Zoology, Transport and Travel, Design, Biochemistry, and Animal Science. The University is also a top ten institution for student experience, according to the Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2017.

95% of our most recent graduates were in work or further study six months after graduating, and almost three quarters were in graduate level roles according to the Destination of Leavers from Higher Education Survey 2014/15.

The University of Lincoln has been commended by the Quality Assurance Agency for its approach to enhancing students’ learning opportunities. Lincoln is also a top ten institution for teaching quality, according to the Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2017.

Lincoln is proud to be home to world-leading researchers who are making profound contributions to their subject areas. Research enables us to discover, disseminate and preserve knowledge.
