Absolutely love living at Gravity, IconInc! The facilities are amazing and everyone who works here is so lovely! Especially during this pandemic it really feels like a home away from home! Would recommend it to students looking for accommodation especially because the location is so close to the High Street and university!
I hate university at the moment, I have even felt suicidal, due to having to live in the way we're living at the moment. Absolutely nothing beats having human contact with others and learning together IN PERSON. I hate waking up to my laptop everyday watching lectures online. It has been incredibly draining mentally and no one cares these days. There's not even societies I can go to properly in person to take my mind off things, I hate life at the moment and it feels as though life will never get better again. Not that anyone will ever care though.
Doing graphic design at the uni was fantastic, the tutors are absolutely incredible especially Barrie and Jo who I had in my 3rd year, the studio space feels like a little family and the facilities you can uses are incredible!
I'm a third year History student and am really glad I came to study at the University of Lincoln. The staff on my course have been brilliant and are always happy to help and often quickly answer any queries you might email them. Their lectures and seminars are very interesting and engaging. The campus feels modern with many buildings being newly built and there are great places to socialise. I like how it doesn't feel isolated and you can easily move between the campus and the city. I really recommend joining a society; I've been part of Athletics since first year and made some great friends and gone to great social activities with them. I feel that it's definitely the best way to meet people and branch out. There's definitely something to do for everyone. The Careers Centre are fantastic and been especially helpful during my third year. It's definitely worth speaking to them in first year too as there's lots of events they put on and many resources to use which are really helpful.
It's difficult to judge the University's facility fairly in these challenging times. However, so far we have found communications good and they seem to be doing everything they can to keep students updated and supported. Study is a blended offer at the moment and the tutors are working hard on this.
Great facilities - lots of resources and help available. A lot of help is given with building Linkedin and CV’s. Not so much help with finding a placement but it is very competitive. The course is wonderful with very useful modules that can be applied both in and out of work environment. Lots of social events and clubs :)
I’m just in my room most of the time and a first year so haven’t really experienced the careers service or societies, the students union did a good job trying to make freshers week the best it could be and I appreciate that. The wifi is good in my room but I know some people struggle with staying connected. I want to be able to watch a lecture in a bloody lecture hall!!!!
The campus facilities are great, especially the library which is big and well-run. There are a lot of societies to choose from (although some are naturally better run than others). Lincoln is both peaceful with the cathedral quarter as well as having a good night life.
Small but modern uni, nice area but very small. Was double booked for exams and basically got left to deal with it so got no grade for the one I couldnt turn up for. Lived in cygnet wharf, nice accom but felt lifeless and wireless internet could be tempremental.
I love the city I love my university. Living here is probably the best decision of my life that I had made. The people are generally friendly and I feel safe, even walking at night. The staff are excellent and helpful. My course has provided me with absolutely everything I needed from equipment to help. I don’t recommend starting an Erasmus application however - that and it’s disorganisation has completely ruined my second year. Regardless, UoL is definitely a place to study.
I really wouldn't recommend this university to anyone for postgrad design study, some good teachers and some vague. Most of the time powerpoints with big grammars that confuse students like they expect you to figure it out without actually explaining and teaching. Really wish i hadn't studied here and that just for 1yr. The support services and student wellbeing are helpful though
Great university that is constantly climbing the league tables. The facilities provided on campus are excellent. There is a plethora of societies that can be joined, or you can set your own up. The city itself is great, there are lots of places to eat and shop, and the nightlife is great.
Great Uni and I would recommend it to anyone! The nightlife on campus is great and the facilities. They have everything you need and more. The well-being services are some of the best I have experienced, which I think is important for a lot of students.
Don't waste your time and money going here. If you like spice heads crawling around, a student union based on exploiting students for their time and money and horribly funded courses where weirdly £9,000 doesn't cover your whole course then you might as well come here. The most helpful review is clearly fake so don't pay any attention to it. Wet and windy, homelessness is rife and they're predatory towards freshers especially.
Honestly, biggest pile of rath of a University i've ever had to deal with. My partner is becoming a Nurse and so many silly issues where you can have assessors who don't actually know what they are assessing and grading you as a third year student, when you are a first. When complaining about your grade, you get a moderator out who just plains mediator with the two parties. University of Lincoln deserves to be shut down. Period.
The university itself is always punching well above it's weight in my opinion and it makes me happy to see how far it has come in such a short time. My time here was filled with some of the brightest and most interesting people I have met. The staff are professional, accomplished and inspiring at times and the courses are top notch. I really loved my time here and will cherish the memories I have made. I think leaving was the hardest part of it.
The experience that vividly lives with me is the injustice, and structural oppression I have witnessed as an International student. If you have a major disability concern, the University cannot support you because you are an International student. Your support is linked to your status, which made question why International students will be offered admissions. It is discriminatory. Unfortunately, the International Office is not useful for an International student. Hence, you have a lone voice, you fight your battles alone. My experience was chilling and horrifying. The University made a grave mistake on my CAS, by inputting the wrong dates of studies completion. I had to fight, writing several mails that were disputed before I got partial 'seemingly' justice. Partial because I was made for a second time to show maintenance fees to the Home Office. My experience is horrifying, it affected my health and wellbeing, hence I wouldn't recommend the University to any International students.
I'm a fresher and have been at lincoln for a few weeks now, studying History (I know). So far the lecturers and seminar leaders have been great, especially Michele from the history dept. There are a lot of societies on offer and the student union hosts a large number of events. The campus has a lot of facilities including a good library, a sports centre and football pitch a pub and a club/music venue. The use of the Blackboard site also makes it easy to access course resources. So far the social experience has been great as Lincoln itself is a great student city. Also, everything is close together so shopping is nice and easy.
Fantastic up and coming university with amazing facilities, teaching and guidance is superb plus the medical school will be built for 2020/21. Only down side is the lack of activities in Lincoln, but of course we won’t hold that against the uni.
I love living and studying at the University of Lincoln. Everything on my course is amazing so far - my personal tutor has been so helpful. I love my accommodation. I didn’t decide I needed accommodation until after results days and the accommodation team couldn’t have been more helpful! I love Lincoln and I’m so glad I came here!
As a former student I have a lot experiences in Lincoln and in Uni. Teachers and students are great - no problem there. The office staffs (admin groups) are horrible! - no communication between 2 offices, it takes ages to get a letter/pass files. Some of the staffs are not very friendly to the International students (specially coming from few specific countries). We were pretty strong group in there (7-9) students but more or less we all have similar experiences from the Uni staffs. Its a shame that such a good Uni has staffs like them who treated us not so politely.
A relatively new University that so far has impressed me with an excellent SU, as well as a great course that has helped me develop my existing skills - Lincoln is a small but great city, with convenient placement of everything you need, including shops, restaurants and night life.
I love Lincoln. Everything is nearby, the facilities are great and it is just a brilliant place to live. The teachers are really great and I've made some amazing friends - just in my first year but really love it here.
Lincoln University is a great university overall, it is great location, everything is within 5 minutes walk of each other and it is a very welcoming and holy place. Unfortunately for an art student graduate (illustration graduate) there isn't much help in looking for graduate illustration work nor preparation or much career service for it along with not much help in freelance illustrating. But this is just one specific course, the campus and nightlife is great although not great if you like alternative music/night life like rock city in Nottinghamshire. There are plenty of clubs, great library and good facilities.
There are lots of things to do on campus including cafes, pubs and bars, all at reasonable prices. There are many different clubs and societies, you will definitely find something for you. The SU is great and they get involved in a lot and put on a lot of great events for everyone. The careers service is great if you know about it. My course made sure I knew about them and we get sent a lot of information about how to improve our CVs or job prospects in the future. The internet is better on campus then in my accommodation I will regularly update apps on my phone while at uni or go to the library to do my research as the internet is faster than that at my accommodation.
Although it's not the largest university, the amount it has grown since I started in first year is so noticeable, and I know it is going to carry on growing. The Students Union is really helpful, the nightlife is so affordable and varied, and I love it!
It's a campus based uni and everything is so close that you can walk to town in about 5 minutes. It's a great location and the lecturers are all really friendly and happy to help as well as being great during lectures and clearly enjoy their subject. Accommodation varies, I'm in brayford quays which I really like despite the touchy WiFi, but courts is a bit prisony and gateway seems rushed. However most accommodation is great and reasonably priced. Great uni and I'm glad I picked it
Business school is utter crap no help from staff subjects are pointless and do not relate to real life business. In three years here I haven't learnt a thing about real life business all lectures do is read off the slides and you'll be lucky to understand them as most have strong accents.
The uni is new and so really modern, and the city is beautiful and full of history and wonderful places to see and the nightlife is excellent for a small city. The courses are varied and interesting, the lecturers seem to really care about what they teach and are motivating. I wouldn't have loved any other uni as much as I do this one
Has everything I ever needed and more. So many opportunities to be involved in Sports and Societies and support from every angle throughout university right up to now. Even supported getting my freelance business off the ground!
Lovely campus in a lovely area. Standard of teaching is very high and the facilities to do so are exceptional. I really have no complaints other than the timetabling of science subjects to be at the same times as most society meetings so science students miss out on extra curricular sometimes. Other than that, it's brilliant.
I enjoyed my first year and I am returning to do my 2nd year of Media Production. There are room for improvements for course organisation, hopefully it's better for my 2nd year. However the university itself is very nice, there is always something going on thanks to the students union. The campus is nice and Lincoln itself is a beautiful little city.
The best modern university out there. I have had an amazing three years, the course is well taught, the SU offers so much and life in Lincoln is great. I have loved my time at Lincoln and wish I could do it all again!
Great uni, can see where they're spending the tuition fees which is nice to see! Constantly updating buildings/systems etc. Amazing social life, always something going off somewhere so never bored! So close to town, never had to get a taxi or public transport once for anything, so cheap!
This university is absolutely amazing, and I'm glad that it seems to be growing at a fast rate. It's the perfect mix of student nightlife without being overcrowded, as well as being great when you need a relaxing day as well. There are all the facilities you could need on campus - great rehearsal space for performance degrees, a fantastic library, multiple study locations and 2 great bars right on campus. I would recommend Lincoln university to anyone and everyone. They are super supportive and really listen to there students. I wish I could go back and carry on studying as I had the best days of my life there!
Absolutely love the University of Lincoln! The people, the nightlife, the location! Amazing educational facility - with such amazing views! The town has everything you could ever need. I highly recommend coming to an open day and having a look round at not only the Uni, but Lincoln as a whole! A great place to live and study for 3 or more years!!
- Campus is fairly modern and always being updated - Beautiful setting within city (Brayford and views of Cathedral) - Excellent facilities - Students' Union really engaging - Good SU bars and venues - Huge variety of clubs and societies - WiFi does drop out a fair bit, but is accessible everywhere on campus - 24/7 library
