Set against the backdrop of Lincoln Cathedral, the University of Lincoln is a relatively new institution in a vibrant and historic city.
With everything in walking distance, the campus is extremely accessible and a night out never requires a taxi. A close community is formed among students across all years, creating a dynamic atmosphere that encourages development and character building.
Academically, the University of Lincoln is on the rise. New courses are on offer each year and the courses that are already established are taught by industry leaders and backed by a fantastic 24 hour library.
Communication between lecturers and students isn’t always great, however more proactive individuals won’t find this a problem. Due to relatively small seminars and lectures, I never had an issue meeting one-on-one with my tutors when I needed to. Everyone knew everyone and this really works in your favour as the exam and dissertation period looms.
There’s a wide variety of student housing available, and I’d definitely recommend connecting with people before you move in to break the ice ASAP. The prominent student area, West Parade, is a safe bet when it comes to finding a nice area that’s close to the centre and your course building.
Overall, the University of Lincoln is a close-knit community that nurtures academic and personal development in a truly lovely city that you’ll be excited to call home.
The university is growing very fast and is very modern. The library is amazing and open 24h. However, very often I find out about great opportunities long after the deadline has passed as they do not let anybody know about them (no emails, no notifications, posters etc. about many events). A newsletter option would be great. For example I have only just found out about pronunciation classes – 2.5 years since starting university, as I was never told/emailed about them, even though I am an International Student.
Also, there could be more support and help especially for European Students. I had a Migrant Worker Status but nobody at the university knew much about it and I was not told that I will lose this status if I go abroad for my exchange.
But the university has many awesome sides – a wide range of societies and sports clubs, great international exchange options and many awesome lecturers.
