Lincoln is such a great university. The town is a great mix between the historical old city and a modern, student friendly vibe with plenty of places to eat and drink. Steep Hill has loads of lovely little boutiques and shops for students. There’s a fair few places to go out, not massively hectic but not dead. Everyone I met was incredibly friendly and interesting, and the teachers were passionate and helpful, really pushing me to work hard and further my academic studies.
