Lincoln moves most up Times table
supplement The University of Lincoln has risen more places than any other university in this year’s Good University Guide published by The Times.

Lincoln has moved up to 62nd place in the Guide, up from 86th place last year. Universities are ranked according to eight criteria, including student satisfaction, research quality and degree results.

The University’s Vice-chancellor, Professor Mary Stuart, said of the news: “The University is delighted with its rise in the league tables. It demonstrates the considerable amount of work undertaken by all staff to achieve an excellent student experience and a strong growing research profile entwined with business.

“Lincoln has a culture of ambition and we are determined to continue to develop our profile as an up and coming quality institution.”

Particularly strong is the University’s ranking in the Student Satisfaction category where it is positioned joint 32nd out of 113 institutions, rising 27 places. This reflects the University’s success in last year’s National Student Survey where Lincoln came 41st out of 154 institutions.

Oxford came top of the Times’ Guide, which is published today (27 May) by HarperCollins. Extracts can be found at www.thetimes.co.uk/gug and in a print supplement in The Times.

The Times Good University Guide, identified by a government-funded review as the most influential of its type, contains new chapters this year on employment and going abroad to university, as well as profiles of every university and special sections for overseas applicants and for parents. It has been published every year since 1993.
