Higher Education booming in Lincoln

Less than a quarter of a century ago, Lincoln did not have a single university to its name, but it is now a bustling student city with two higher education establishments on the rise in recent years.

Less than a quarter of a century ago, Lincoln did not have a single university to its name, but it is now a bustling student city with two higher education establishments on the rise in recent years.

The University of Lincoln has gone from strength to strength since moving its main campus into the city in 2001, and Bishop Grosseteste, a specialist teaching college, was granted university status in 2012.

In 2018, the University of Lincoln was ranked 29th in the Times Higher Education “Table of Tables”, which shows how UK universities are rated by national newspapers.

It was ranked 22nd in the Guardian University Guide, 42nd in the Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2019, and 43rd in the Complete University Guide 2019.

The University of Lincoln also delivers a superb standard of student satisfaction, ranking 7th in the most recent National Student Survey (NSS) results. Lincoln was also named in the UK’s top ten for postgraduate and international student satisfaction in the Whatuni Student Choice Awards 2017.

96% of students at the University of Lincoln, and 97% of students at Bishop Grosseteste University, will be in employment within six months of graduating.

Both the University of Lincoln and Bishop Grosseteste University have been recognised with the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) Gold award, which recognised institutions that deliver consistently outstanding teaching, learning and outcomes for their students.

It is not just the quality of the education which brings students to Lincoln, but also the opportunity to be based in a beautiful and historic city which is now home to over 16,000 students.
