Discover the University of Lincoln
The University of Lincoln has enjoyed a meteoric rise up the university league tables for good reason: we put students at the heart of everything we do. Added to that, we are a research-based university with quality teaching and excellent career prospects for our graduates.
Academics and students at the University carry out major research for the benefit of society across areas as varied as mobility technology, medical imaging for cancer diagnosis, prevention of community re-offending, anti-terrorist surveillance, food security and water conservation, treatment of insomnia and children’s language development.
A business ethos pervades the entire range of our programmes, from science and technology courses to arts and humanities, with emphasis placed on ensuring that what our students learn is up-to-date, research-informed and relevant to employers. Many of our academic and research programmes are created directly with partners in industry to give employers a competitive edge, thanks to world-leading expertise and work-ready graduates.
Opened by Her Majesty The Queen, the University’s main campus in Lincoln was the first new city centre campus to be built in the UK for decades. More than £140 million has been invested in the stunning Brayford Pool campus that has transformed a city centre brownfield site, revitalised the area and attracted investment from the retail, leisure and property sectors.
Economists estimate that the University has created at least 3,000 new jobs within Lincoln and that it generates more than £250 million every year for the local economy - doubling previous local economic growth rates.
This forward-looking, international University is at the heart of a truly thriving, cosmopolitan and friendly city.
