Make a Difference

The University of Lincoln has established an international reputation for the quality of its teaching and research. Lincoln is ranked in the top 20 UK universities in the Guardian University Guide 2020, and is a top 50 UK university in the Complete University Guide 2020. Our academic teams are involved in research at the leading edge of their disciplines, from developing new antibiotics and more effective cancer treatments, to tackling the digital divide and preserving historical artefacts. This research is changing the world and its quality and relevance is recognised nationally and internationally. More than half of Lincoln’s research was judged to be internationally excellent or world-leading in the Research Excellence Framework 2014 - the most recent major assessment of research standards across UK universities.

We are extremely grateful for the support and contributions we have already received that have helped to make the University of Lincoln what it is today, but to continue this journey we need your support. Through a generous gift you can help support the next generation of students and researchers.

Teaching and Learning During COVID-19

The current COVID-19 pandemic has meant that at Lincoln we are making changes to our teaching and learning approach and to our campus, to ensure that students and staff can enjoy a safe and positive learning experience here at Lincoln. 

From autumn 2020 our aim is to provide an on-campus learning experience. Our intention is that teaching will be delivered through a mixture of face-to-face and online sessions. There will be social activities in place for students - all in line with appropriate social distancing and fully adhering to any changes in government guidance as our students’ safety is our primary concern.

Support the Lincoln Medical School

In September 2019, the University of Lincoln will welcome its first medical students to the Brayford Pool Campus as part of an exciting collaboration with the University of Nottingham to offer medical education in Lincolnshire.

Until now, Lincolnshire has been the largest English county without a medical school, without the ability to train its own doctors. That is set to change. The creation of a new medical school will be transformational for Lincolnshire. The Medical School aims to inspire young people from local schools, give them more opportunities to train as doctors, and encourage them to remain in the area once they have qualified.

The Medical School is set to make a huge difference to thousands of people’s lives – and you can be a part of it.

The Alumni Fund

The University of Lincoln is proud of its record for widening participation in higher education, with a high proportion of our students coming from families with no previous experience of attending university. We will continue to seek to help young people across Greater Lincolnshire and beyond to unlock their potential by studying at Lincoln.

We ask our alumni to consider supporting our students by contributing to a bursary fund to support applicants from low-income backgrounds to study at Lincoln.
