Complete University Guide sees Lincoln continue to rise
Student in GCW library The University of Lincoln has risen to 53rd place in this year’s Complete University Guide, improving on last year’s ranking by 14 places.

The online Guide published today (24 April) ranks 116 institutions according to the combined data for nine areas: student satisfaction; research assessment; entry standards; student:staff ratio; academic services spend; facilities spend; good honours; graduate prospects; completion rates.

Lincoln is the only university to have improved its ranking in the Guide in every year since it was first published in 2007. Since then it has climbed 56 places overall - the furthest of all universities.

Chris Spendlove, Registrar at the University of Lincoln, said: “The improvement in our position in such a short period of time reflects the ongoing hard work by staff across all areas of the University and the genuine partnership with our Students’ Union.

“We are committed to ensuring that our students have the best experience possible during their time with us. This is not just about studying in an inspiring and well-equipped environment but also learning from academics who are involved in some of the leading research in their fields.

“We aim to equip our graduates with knowledge and skills that will form the solid foundations of their careers and enable them to make a difference to society.”

Dr Bernard Kingston, principal author of the Guide said: “The Complete University Guide allows would-be students to adapt the main table to their needs and explore the listings for individual subjects without charge and with confidence that the information is up to date and accurate.”

The Complete University Guide is produced by publishers Constable & Robinson and Mayfield University Consultants. It can be found at www.completeuniversityguide.co.uk
