I found the University of Lincoln to be one of the fastest growing academic institutions in the UK with the right learning environment, friendly and efficient teaching and administrative staff. I studied my Masters here in Lincoln and due to the unique professional and academic training that I received, the multicultural background, support staff and a friendly community, I decided to pursue my PhD at Lincoln University too.

I was looking for a student-friendly UK university located in a city centre but with a safe environment to live and study in. The University of Lincoln came top of my list. Even though I was far away from friends and family, the cross-cultural international representation of students at Lincoln made me feel at home.

The University recognises the importance of giving students the opportunity to develop knowledge and ability in ways that will equip you for a wide range of careers by providing both research and professional training.
