Situated in the heart of a beautiful and historic city, the University of Lincoln has established an international reputation for the quality of its teaching and research, rating in the top 10 in the UK for teaching quality and student experience (The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2017).
Lincoln is recognised as setting a blueprint for excellence in teaching and learning through its pioneering approach to working with industry. Its unique relationships with companies such as Siemens and the Lincolnshire Co-op demonstrate its innovative industry-engaged approach. This has been acknowledged through a series of national awards and accolades, including a Lord Stafford Award and a Times Higher Education Award.
Since the University’s main Brayford Pool Campus was opened by Her Majesty the Queen in 1996, more than £200m has been invested in the facilities, revitalising this waterfront area of the city and attracting investment from retail, leisure and property sectors.
The University of Lincoln is estimated to be worth more than £300m to the local economy, doubling local economic growth rates, and has created more than 3,000 jobs. Its award-winning Sparkhouse business incubation centre has supported more than 300 new and growing businesses to establish themselves in the region and created over 450 new jobs.
The Holbeach Campus in southern Lincolnshire is home to the National Centre for Food Manufacturing, a state-of-the-art facility which serves as a gateway to global food manufacturing, providing critical expertise on industry needs and hosting pioneering research, development and training projects. The University’s Lincoln International Business School provides work-based learning for industry and the Armed Forces.
The quality and breadth of research at the University of Lincoln was highlighted in the national Research Excellence Framework 2014, where more than half of the University’s submitted research was rated as internationally excellent or world leading. In its latest review by the UK’s Quality Assurance Agency, Lincoln was commended for its approach to enhancing students’ learning opportunities and its Student as Producer initiative, which engages all students in real academic research.
The University also has some of the most satisfied students in the UK, placed in the UK’s top 10 for overall student satisfaction in the National Student Survey (NSS) 2016 and ranked number one in a range of NSS subject areas including Zoology, Transport and Travel, Design, Biochemistry, and Animal Science. Lincoln graduates enjoy prospects above the national average with 95% of its most recent graduates in work or further study six months after graduating and almost three quarters in graduate level roles.
