Each year, the University of Lincoln Global Postgraduate Scholarships welcomes students from diverse backgrounds worldwide. It offers a variety of scholarships and bursaries, which can provide extra financial assistance with the costs of study to qualified students.
At the University of Lincoln, we believe passionately in the transformative power of higher education.
The University of Lincoln has been a public research university based in Lincoln, England, since 1861. It achieved university status in 1992 and its present name and structure in 2001.
The university’s main campus is adjacent to Brayford Pool – a site of urban regeneration since the 1990s, with satellite campuses in Riseholme, Lincolnshire – the Lincoln Institute for Agri-food Technology – and an additional campus at Holbeach, housing the National Centre for Food Manufacturing (NCFM).
The University of Lincoln was ranked 43rd in the UK by The Times, 42nd by Complete, and 17th by The Guardian in 2020, the highest to date.
In 2017, the university ranked 8th in Agriculture and Forestry and 2nd in Business and Economics in The Complete University Guide rankings. However, more than half of its submitted research was rated internationally excellent or world-leading in the UK’s last nationwide examination of university research standards, the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF 2014).
The University of Lincoln was granted gold in the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF 2017). In 2020, the university was named Modern University of the Year in The Times and Sunday Times Good University 2021 as the highest-ranked multi-faculty modern university in the UK, rating 45th (out of 135), its highest-ever position in the guide.
Furthermore, in the same year, it was named one of the world’s most outstanding young universities in The Times Higher Education Young University Rankings, ranked 14th in the UK for overall student satisfaction among the 129 mainstream universities in the National Student Survey 2020, and given a five-star rating in the QS Stars rating of global universities.
The University of Lincoln Students’ Union dates back to the university’s construction. In 2007, it was reconstituted as a company limited by guarantee and registered as a charity, introducing a more conventional governance structure for students’ unions.
It then supports and represents the university’s students; sabbatical officers are elected by the student body and supported by the staff. Several sports teams operate in the national BUCS’ leagues, contesting nationally against other institutions.
The Students’ Union was granted NUS (National Union of Students) Higher Education Students’ Union of the Year 2014/15 at an annual awards ceremony.
In 2014, the request of the on-campus pub, The Shed, was transferred to the Students’ Union after its acquisition from Greene King. It was later renamed The Swan.
In 2015, the Students’ Union was granted Best Bar None Gold and named second in the Best Bar None Safest Venue category. Then in 2016, after a student referendum, the Students’ Union voted to disaffiliate from the NUS due to dismay after the controversial 2016 NUS Conference.
The conclusion was taken to leave the NUS in December formally, but a second referendum was held after strategies from students who opposed the first vote. The re-run had 1,302 students voting to remain part of the NUS and 437 auspices disaffiliation.
