Thats mad, I'm the opposite way around. I applied to Lincoln and Nottingham. I got an offer from Lincoln and rejection from Notts. Lincoln was my first because I've lived in Nottigham my whole life and I want a new city. Whats Lincoln like? would you recommend?

It’s a good place in my opinion got a lot of good bars /variety of night clubs and some great shops in the city centre I’m slightly biased but I do like the city of Lincoln

Hi larajadebear,

Congrats on firming! So I am not a medical student but I am a student rep so can answer your questions!
So I studied Biomedical Science for my undergraduate degree and now Microbiology for my postgraduate. Lincoln is such a lovely place, a good size (not too big and not too small) and has plenty to offer. This year is our first intake of medical students so there isn't many reviews out there but, I know a couple of medical students and they are so far really enjoying the course and are finding it really inclusive. For starting the course I would definitely make sure you prepare all your stuff to move in well in advance and make sure you have everything. Once your accommodation is confirmed on results day then you will be able to find your flat mates through social media pages and groups, then you can start to plan shared kitchen appliances so you don't all turn up with a kettle! Also, start revising from day 1, with medicine you will constantly encounter case studies which will help you practice and learn when it comes to placements.
The Medical School is currently a bunch of steel girders but will be beautiful when it is completed in 2021. But until then, several rooms across campus have been re-purposed specifically for you guys to use for your labs etc. You can view a virtual tour of the building here.
So far I have not heard any cons of studying medicine at Lincoln which should say how good it's going so far!

Best wishes for the future,
Lexy
