We have a reputation for innovative teaching and were awarded Gold, the highest standard possible, in the national Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) 2017, an independent assessment of teaching quality in UK higher education.
The University of Lincoln was judged by the TEF panel as delivering consistently outstanding teaching, learning, and outcomes for its students. This award reflects our exciting teaching methods, great support for students, and excellent employment outcomes.
We welcome thousands of new members to our community each year and we benefit from sharing views and ideas from all around the globe. We thrive as a community because of our diversity and it is through exploring novel and different ideas together that we can understand our world better.
One of the UK's great historic cities, Lincoln is renowned for its fusion of old and new. The combination of vibrant city centre and a historic Cathedral Quarter, both offering a rich variety of attractions, activities, and amenities, makes Lincoln a fantastic place in which to live and study.
Each year, the University of Lincoln welcomes high-profile individuals from all over the world to speak at our prestigious Great Lives lecture series.
Open to staff, students, and the general public, the series connects audiences with inspiring figures who are considered leaders in the worlds of business, sport, politics, science, and the arts.
While you are not able to visit us in person at the moment, you can still find out more about the University of Lincoln and what it is like to live and study here at one of our Virtual Open Days.
Just like our normal Open Days, these events allow you to find out more about the subject you are interested in, speak to staff and current students about their experiences of Lincoln, find out more about the support services available, and explore our campus and wider city.
