Discover the University of Lincoln

Since being opened by Her Majesty the Queen, the University of Lincoln has put students at the heart of everything we do, while climbing more places in university league tables than almost any other institution.

World-class teaching and research

The University has established an international reputation for the quality of teaching and research, with academics and students working together on major projects across areas as varied as cancer treatment, water conservation and low-carbon technology. 

Excellent graduate employment

As many as 92 per cent of our graduates were in employment or further study within six months of graduating, according to the latest survey. We are committed to ensuring our students are prepared for a successful career through work placements, internships, volunteering research and connections with industry.

High student satisfaction

The University of Lincoln is proud to have some of the most satisfied students in the UK, with many of our programmes in the top ten for student satisfaction. For example, our Accountancy and Finance course has been ranked no.1 for the fifth year running in the National Student Survey 2013, while Psychology is first for student satisfaction, according to the Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2014.

Historic city centre location

The University of Lincoln’s award-winning campus provides a modern, student-centred environment on the picturesque Brayford Pool marina, where everything you need is either on campus or just a short walk away in the city centre. With its medieval castle and one of the finest cathedrals in Europe, Lincoln is steeped in history and home to galleries, cinemas, shopping, restaurants, bars and nightclubs.
