Pui Mun Chan's testimonial

Read Full Testimonial

Heading to lectures and seminars, going to the gym and hanging out with my friends is my normal day during my first year in Lincoln. In the second year, I was able to find a part time job allowing me to balance my study and working life whilst enabling me to enhance my CV. There is a job shop on campus, so it is very easy to find work and earn some extra money.

The prices here are reasonable and a lot cheaper compared to living in London or the south of the UK.

Muhammad Nur Akmal Bin Kamaruzaman, BA (Hons) Accountancy and Finance

After visiting the University of Lincoln and the city itself, I was very impressed and keen to study here. My experience of being a student at the university has been fantastic, all the way from being offered a place right through to graduating. The support for international students here is overwhelming. There are many facilities available for students, from sports and leisure to entertainment and lifestyle. Activities such as day trips to places of interest, foreign language films, inaugural lectures on an extensive range of topics and community voluntary service are available. This all provides students with a diverse outlook during their time at the university.

The University of Lincoln also provides careers advice and opportunities for students to explore their interests and capabilities to a further level. I would certainly recommend the University of Lincoln to prospective International students.
