“The support and encouragement offered to me by the University of Lincoln helped me exceed my own expectations in the professional world. I was given the right tools to excel in the professional world of marketing and to become the best version of myself.”

MSc Marketing graduate Patramon, from Thailand, who now works in the marketing department of CP All Group

"Lincoln is a city full of history. I have been living here for a year now and I have never got bored of this city. I am a Master’s degree student in MSc International business. The course was beyond my expectation and the university really impressed me. It’s quiet and full of knowledge and also very modern. I believe the university and the course have prepared me well for my future career and think my dreams will be able to come true.

It's hard to select my best spot in Lincoln but my favourites are the beautiful cathedral, the castle, and the Arboretum park. I always enjoy walking around the city and jogging with my friends. We have a favourite coffee shop and a favourite cake shop to relax ourselves. I will not forget this place because there has been so much happiness here."

Panalee Chuenjaichanok, MSc International Business student


"Studying in the foreign country is really different from my past studies. Here, I need to be involved with the class more than I was used to. I need to give my opinion with classmates and the lecturers and use analytical and logical skills. Moreover, I have to be open-minded as to accept the different ideas or feedback from others as we have to discuss and debate more. Studying here gives me more opportunities in expressing creative thinking and the lecturers like to hear our ideas rather than only inputting the knowledge of the module.  

"You will not be disappointed joining Lincoln. Do not be afraid of starting new things since every dream is valid, and you owe it to yourself."
