Award-winning teaching and learning

Lincoln is ranked 22nd overall in the UK in The Guardian University Guide 2019 and was awarded Gold – the highest standard possible – in the national Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) 2017, an independent assessment of teaching quality in UK higher education. This award reflects its exciting teaching methods, great support for students and excellent employment outcomes.

In the National Student Survey (NSS) 2018, students rated the University of Lincoln among the best in the country for overall student satisfaction, placing the University 7th in the UK.

Great industry links

The University is recognised as setting a blueprint for excellence in teaching and learning through its pioneering approach to working with industry. Its relationships with companies such as Siemens demonstrate its innovative, industry-engaged approach. This has been acknowledged through
 a series of national awards and accolades, including a Lord Stafford Award (2011) and a Times Higher Education Award (2012).

The University has been recognised by the Quality Assurance Agency for the way it works with students to maintain and improve a good quality experience. It has a Student Engagement Team dedicated to working in partnership with students and supporting academics, service teams and managers to improve the quality of what it does by responding to student feedback.

Excellent graduate prospects

Ninety-six per cent of Lincoln’s most recent graduates were in work or further study six months after finishing their course, with more than three quarters in graduate level roles [Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education Survey 2015/16, published July 2017]. Lincoln graduates secure jobs at major companies and organisations around the world.  Graduate destinations have included the BBC, Rolls-Royce, Siemens, Boots, GlaxoSmithKline, PwC and Rockstar Games. Lincoln prides itself in helping its students achieve excellent career prospects.

Specialist facilities and a fabulous location

Lincoln is a fabulous place for students with its main campus located next to the picturesque Brayford Pool marina in the heart of the thriving city centre. Steeped in history, Lincoln is home to one of the finest cathedrals in Europe, a medieval castle and an original 1215 Magna Carta. The city is the only place in the world where Magna Carta can be seen side-by-side with an original 1217 Charter of the Forest.

Based in the heart of the city, accommodation is either on, or a short walk from, the Brayford Pool Campus. High-street shops, supermarkets, restaurants, bars, and sports and leisure facilities are only minutes away. More than three quarters (77%) of its students come into campus on foot, one of the highest ratios of any university in the country [Student Travel Survey 2016, as reported to HESA].

Opened by Her Majesty the Queen in 1996, Lincoln’s award-winning Brayford Pool Campus provides a modern, student-centred environment. More than £300 million has been invested in its facilities over the past two decades. Lincoln has won a number of awards over the years for its campus buildings, including accolades from RIBA and RICS for its Great Central Warehouse Library.

A global family

Lincoln has an active alumni network, with Lincoln graduates keeping in touch from their roles in major international companies, charities and organisations all over the world. Its global graduate community includes more than 85,000 former Lincoln students across 130 countries. Many of its most successful graduates return to Lincoln to share their knowledge with current students at its annual series of alumni networking events. Lincoln’s ethos is to provide an education and experience which enables its students to achieve the future they want and that relationship extends long beyond graduation. Lincoln’s students become part of the Lincoln family for life.

Lincoln’s graduates are changing the world. Among its alumni are notable filmmakers, Members of Parliament, award-winning designers and illustrators, and engineers working for global companies. Recent graduates include the comedian and presenter Jack Howard, who was name-checked by The Hunger Games producer Jon Kilik as one of his inspirations in 2013. Further afield, Lincoln alumni Vicki Phillips is a leading educationalist in the US, having been a director at Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

Professional accreditation

Many of Lincoln’s courses are accredited by relevant professional bodies, further strengthening employment prospects for our graduates. Its industry links with professional bodies can mean enhanced opportunities for you to take part in relevant work placements, visit sites of interests and hear from visiting speakers.

A wealth of opportunities

It’s not just the academic side of life that its graduates remember so fondly – it’s the activities, sports and events they get involved in outside of the lecture theatres too. Through its Students’ Union there is an eclectic array of clubs and societies (currently 130) students can get involved in – spanning interests from Parkour to Harry Potter. Its sports teams compete in British Universities and Colleges Sports (BUCS) competitions and have enjoyed a number of trophy wins in BUCS competitions in recent years.

Extracurricular activities such as volunteering, work experience or contributing to student clubs and societies are formally recognised through The Lincoln Award, an initiative run jointly by the University and Lincoln Students’ Union to help students develop their skills, knowledge and experience to stand out from the crowd to future employers.

Supporting communities

Staff and students from the University and Lincoln Students’ Union devote thousands of hours each year to helping their local communities as volunteers. From litter picking to supporting people affected by cancer, this voluntary work is another valuable contribution the University makes to the wider community. Graduate Alice Carter won the Prime Minister’s Point of Light Award in 2014 after dedicating more than 2,500 volunteer hours to community sports projects.
