Situated in the heart of a beautiful and historic city, the University of Lincoln is recognised for the quality of its teaching, research and innovative approach to working with industry.
Its work with Siemens plc in establishing the first dedicated school of engineering to be created in the UK for more than two decades has been widely cited as an example of best practice for university-industry collaborations. It has won a string of national accolades, including a Lord Stafford Award and Times Higher Education Award.
Since the University’s main Brayford Pool Campus was opened by Her Majesty the Queen in 1996, more than £150m 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 £250m to the local economy and has created more than 3,000 jobs.
Its award-winning Sparkhouse business incubation centre has enabled more than 200 new and growing businesses to establish themselves. The Holbeach Campus in southern Lincolnshire is home to the National Centre for Food Manufacturing, a state-of-the-art training factory sponsored and updated entirely by industry. The University’s Lincoln Business School provides work-based learning for industry and the Armed Forces.
Lincoln saw an increase in national research funding of more than 600 per cent following the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) and its academics regularly secure grant funding from major UK research councils and European sources.
The University of Lincoln was rated in the top third of UK universities in the THE Student Experience Survey 2014. Its Accountancy course has ranked number one for student satisfaction in the National Student Survey for five years running and several other subjects are listed in the top 10 nationally.
In its latest review by the UK’s Quality Assurance Agency, Lincoln was commended for its Student as Producer initiative, which engages all students in real academic research.
Lincoln graduates enjoy prospects above the national average with nine out of ten in work or further study six months after finishing their course and two thirds in graduate level roles.
