关于 University of Lincoln

Situated in the heart of a beautiful and historic city in the East Midlands region of England, the University of Lincoln, UK, has established an international reputation for the quality of its teaching and research and its innovative approach to working with employers.

The University has around 15,000 students 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 city of Lincoln is approximately within an hour’s journey time of Nottingham, Leicester and Sheffield, and well-connected by road and rail to London and several major UK airports. Popular with tourists, its medieval castle and cathedral attract hundreds of thousands of visitors from across the world each year.

Most of the University’s students are based at the main Brayford Pool Campus in the picturesque waterfront area of Lincoln’s city centre. More than 100 different nationalities are represented among the academic community.

The University was awarded Gold – the highest standard possible – in the 2017 Teaching Excellence Framework, a nationwide assessment of teaching quality across UK higher education institutions and it was ranked in the UK top 20 in The Guardian University Guide 2020.

Since the University of Lincoln’s Brayford Pool Campus was opened by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in 1996, more than £350 million has been invested in the buildings and facilities, and while the institution can trace its origins back to 1861, it is listed by The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2019 as one of the UK’s top modern universities.

The University of Lincoln has won a string of awards for its approach to working with employers, most notably its relationship with global engineering company Siemens in developing the Lincoln School of Engineering, which was the first dedicated facility of its kind created in the UK for more than 20 years. The University also has a strong reputation for the quality of its research, with more than half of its submitted research rated as internationally-excellent or world-leading in the UK’s last nationwide assessment of university research standards, the 2014 Research Excellent Framework (REF 2014). Its researchers work on major international collaborations with universities around the world with specialisms in areas including medical imaging, architectural conservation, rural economic development, agri-tech, biotechnology and new drug development.


The University of Lincoln aims to provide a stimulating and supportive environment for international students from around the world.

The University of Lincoln International Study Centre runs university preparation courses for international students who do not otherwise meet the direct entry requirements for an undergraduate degree course. Students can apply for an International Foundation Year or International Year One course, depending on their English Language and academic level, for several of Lincoln’s undergraduate programmes. Upon successful completion, students can progress to degree level study. The ISC’s university preparation courses are provided by Study Group in collaboration with the University of Lincoln.

The University’s in-house English Language Centre also offers Pre-sessional English and Academic Study Skills (PEASS) courses to help international students meet the minimum language requirements for their chosen academic course and to familiarise themselves with UK academic culture and study skills before starting a degree at Lincoln.

Each year, the University of Lincoln awards a number of merit-based, subject-specific, and country-focused scholarships to international students. Eligibility and awards vary by country, so please visit our website for further information:


At the University of Lincoln, our academic teams are involved in research at the leading edge of their disciplines, from developing new antibiotics and more effective cancer treatments, to tackling the digital divide and preserving historical artefacts.

We are committed to undertaking purposeful research that has a real impact beyond academia. This research is changing the world and is recognised nationally and internationally.

The quality and breadth of our research was highlighted in the most recent Research Excellence Framework (REF) assessment in 2014, where more than half of our submitted research was rated as internationally excellent or world leading, and where two of our subject centres were rated in the top 10 of all institutions in the UK for the quality of their research outputs.

Lincoln is home to hundreds of academic researchers in more than 20 Schools across four academic Colleges, several specialist institutes, and dozens of research groups.

Examples of our international multi-disciplinary approach include the work of Professor Nigel Allinson MBE and colleagues to develop world-first medical imaging technologies for use in cancer treatment.

Our Lincoln Institute for Agri-food Technology is pioneering research into agri-robotics to help improve food security and productivity.  In 2019, we created the world's first Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) for agri-food robotics in collaboration with the University of Cambridge and the University of East Anglia.

We are leading work to improve accessibility of museums and exhibitions, and supporting communities to explore and protect their own cultural and archaeological heritage. Our social scientists are investigating processes of political engagement, and our economists are making the case for improved infrastructure in rural areas.

We are proud to work with collaborators, industry partners, and participants across our city, region, nation, and around the world as we strive to address global research challenges.

Crucially, we also believe that teaching and research are complementary, not competing, activities. This commitment to a true spirit scholarship is embedded across the University of Lincoln.

Through our ground-breaking Student as Producer ethos, which presents students at all levels with opportunities to collaborate on real academic research projects, our students can experience the thrill of academic discovery as they learn. This approach to research-engaged teaching is at the core of our curriculum.
