University of Lincoln

Student review
By Hannah-_-Louise

The University of Lincoln was my top choice when considering universities, I really didn't want to go anywhere else. On arrival here, it really hasn't let me down! The university itself is beautiful and provides a great course and experience. The location is brilliant and it is a great place to study. I will never regret this choice and I really would recommend coming to one of our open days to see the university for yourself.

Student Life in Lincoln

One of the world’s great historic cities, Lincoln is a place where ancient architecture blends together seamlessly with modern living. The University of Lincoln campus is found in the heart of the city on the Brayford waterfront. Across the marina, along the Brayford waterfront, continental style cafes are found overlooking the water. Minutes’ walk away, the city centre area of Lincoln is a blend of old and new, where Tudor beamed tea rooms nudge up against modern bistros. At the top of Lincoln's Steep Hill is the city's old quarter, home to the thousand year-old Cathedral and medieval castle. Independent businesses line its cobbled streets, including art galleries, delicatessens, vintage boutiques and antique book shops. The fusion of old and new, ancient and contemporary, makes Lincoln an exciting place to live and study.
