There are great things going on at the University of Lincoln. It’s a fantastic place to live and study and as the start of your higher education academic experience it will prove challenging, exciting and transformative.

Lincoln is proud to have some of the most satisfied students in the UK, and is placed in the top 10 for overall student satisfaction in the National Student Survey 2016 with several courses ranked number one for their subject areas. The University has also been named the number one modern university by the Complete University Guide 2016.

In addition to providing an excellent student experience, 95% of our graduates were in work or further study six months after finishing their course according to the Destination of Higher Education Leaver’s Survey 2014-15.

The University of Lincoln has also recently been awarded gold in the Teaching Excellence Framework 2017, judged as delivering consistently outstanding teaching, learning and outcomes for its students.

The Clearing Process

Clearing is the system that offers students who have not yet secured a place at university, the opportunity to apply for available places. Every year thousands of students find courses to suit their individual needs through the national Clearing process.

The service is available between July and September, although most activity takes place after A-level results, this year on 17th August.

Students choose to enter Clearing for a number of reasons:

  • More successful results than they had expected and they want a course to reflect these
  • Grades that do not meet their initial conditional offer and they would like to consider other options
  • Unsuccessful in an earlier UCAS application
  • Last minute decision to apply for University
  • Change of mind about their choice of University.

Fees and Funding
