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
