Lincoln placed in UK top ten for international and postgraduate student satisfaction
Whatuni Student Choice Awards The University of Lincoln has been named in the UK’s top ten for student satisfaction by postgraduate and international students in the Whatuni Student Choice Awards 2017.

The rankings recognise institutions for excellence in a wide variety of academic and social areas, and Lincoln has been ranked third place nationally for postgraduate student satisfaction and ninth for international student satisfaction.

These latest top ten accolades build on Lincoln’s success in the last National Student Survey and The Times and Sunday Times University Guide 2017, which placed Lincoln in the top ten in the UK for student satisfaction, teaching quality, and student experience. The University of Lincoln has more than 100 nationalities represented on campus, and most postgraduate programmes offer the opportunity for students to undertake placement opportunities.

Elly Sample, Director of Communications, Development and Marketing, at the University of Lincoln, said: “We are delighted to receive such a resounding vote of approval from our students.

“The opinions of our students are very important to us. Indeed, students are engaged at all levels at the University of Lincoln. They sit on the key decision making committees, they help to shape courses, sit on interview panels and have the opportunity to work with leading researchers in the creation of knowledge.”

The Whatuni rankings take into consideration more than 27,000 reviews collected from up to 130 UK universities on a variety of topics. Students at institutions across the UK were asked to rate their overall university experience so far, selecting 1 being ‘not so good’, 5 being ‘awesome’.

Each category in the Whatuni Student Choice Awards is based on the aggregate review score submitted by students at that university, and the number of institutions in each category varies depending on the responses received.

Feedback in the survey of postgraduate students placed Lincoln in third position out of 36 institutions in the UK. International students’ views placed the University in ninth place of 49 institutions.
