Vice Chancellor's Welcome

‌‌Mary Stewart new photoHere at the University of Lincoln, we have a reputation for providing a high-quality student experience underpinned by a research culture that seeks to contribute to the development of society. Based in one of the world's great small cities with a fascinating heritage, our modern campus provides the very best facilities for learning and research development.

At Lincoln, we seek to place our students at the heart of everything we do and this is reflected in our excellent levels of student satisfaction - Lincoln is in the top third nationally for student experience, according to the Times Higher Education Student Experience Survey 2015. Our research focus ensures that we offer our students a true 'higher' education experience, particularly through our research-engaged teaching initiative, which positions staff and students as collaborators in the production of knowledge. Our research and development programmes support many companies across the globe and we are proud of the deep relationships we have with industry and our wider community.  

Many of our programmes are developed in partnership with employers, creating graduates who, by the time they finish their studies here, have the skills required by employers. Students who come to Lincoln have a wide range of opportunities to develop themselves both in and beyond the classroom. We encourage our students to grab these opportunities with both hands to ensure they develop as confident, innovative and enquiring leaders of the future.  

The University of Lincoln continues to grow and develop. It is an ambitious, dynamic and exciting environment for all our students and staff and I welcome you warmly to our community.
