Opened by Her Majesty the Queen in 1996, the Brayford Pool Campus at Lincoln provides a student-centred environment with more than £350million invested in facilities over the past two decades. The University has around 16,000 students studying across its four academic colleges, covering arts, science, business and social sciences subjects with more than 300 courses available in total at undergraduate and postgraduate level.

The University of Lincoln was rated 7th in the UK for overall student satisfaction in the National Student Survey (out of 127 institutions) and in the top 20 for student experience in The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide. It gained a Gold Award in the national Teaching Excellence Framework - the highest standard possible - and The Times and Sunday Times University Guide 2021 also named Lincoln its Modern University of the Year.

Lincoln features some of the most striking architecture in Europe due to its medieval history, and all students will graduate in the majestic Lincoln Cathedral, providing a memorable end to academic studies.

Services for International Students

On selected dates throughout the year, the University of Lincoln operate a free airport pick-up service for overseas students arriving into London Heathrow. There is also a dedicated International Advice team, available to help and advise overseas students of their rights and responsibilities in a number of areas including Tier 4 visas, working while studying, bringing your family to the UK, working after studying, Schengen visas for travelling in Europe and more.


  • 45th in the Times University Guide 2021

96 per cent of Lincoln's most recent graduates were in work or further study six months after finishing their course with more than 80 per cent in graduate level roles (Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education Survey 2016/17, published July 2018). Lincoln is a top 50 UK university, ranked 45th in the UK (out of 135) in The Times University Guide 2021.


Based in the heart of Lincoln’s city centre, most student accommodation at the University is either on the Brayford Pool Campus or just a short distance away.

The Student Village comprises the University’s on-campus accommodation and is made up of two purpose-built waterfront complexes: Lincoln Courts and Cygnet Wharf. The University also manages a range of halls of residence and shared housing options for new and continuing students who choose to live off-campus.


Situated in the East Midlands region of England, Lincoln’s central location allows for easy access to a number of major cities including Nottingham, Sheffield, Leeds, Leicester, and Hull.

The University’s main campus is based in the heart of the city, meaning students do not need a car for transport.

The city’s famous Steep Hill – a beautiful cobbled street lined with boutique shops and tearooms - provides the gateway to the city’s historic Cathedral Quarter and Bailgate area where independent shops and cafes nestle between the walls of the medieval Lincoln Castle and the grandeur of Lincoln Cathedral. Both overlook the University of Lincoln.

I had a very great experience right from the start to finish; All the staff were really great and very helpful. I recommend SI-UK for all students who are planning to study in the UK.
