Lincoln named among England's top 40 universities
University of Lincoln The University of Lincoln has been named among the top 40 English universities in the first major student guide of this year.

The Complete University Guide 2016, published today (Monday 27th April 2015), placed Lincoln 40th out of 103 English universities listed and in 51st position overall out of 126 UK higher education institutions. This was a jump of four places from last year's UK rankings and positions Lincoln firmly in the top half of the tables.

The University of Lincoln was named in the Top 5 Universities in the East Midlands, described as offering "a quality education with an inspiring atmosphere".

The Complete University Guide 2016 is the first to use the latest national data on research quality. More than half of Lincoln's research was judged to be internationally excellent or world-leading in the national Research Excellence Framework 2014.

The rankings also consider student satisfaction, graduate employability, good honours degrees, spending on facilities and student-staff ratios.

Professor Mary Stuart, Vice Chancellor at the University of Lincoln, said: "The Complete University Guide is the latest analysis to show that the University of Lincoln successfully combines two essential activities: excellent teaching and excellent research.
"We are a forward thinking university with high ambitions and we are continuing to invest in exceptional academic staff at Lincoln along with expanding our state-of-the-art new facilities for students and researchers. All this contributes to a community on campus where our students and researchers can thrive and develop."
