University of Lincoln

United Kingdom

It would seem that the University of Lincoln, established under that name in 2001, is a relatively new university. However, it has origins tracing back to 1861 when the institution was known as the Hull School of Art.

Since receiving the royal charter to become a fully-fledged university, the University of Lincoln (previously known as the University of Lincolnshire and Humberside from 1996-2000) has enjoyed a meteoric rise up the university league tables, surpassing 60 UK universities on the Times Good University guide in the past 6 years alone.

Subject Strengths: Law, Psychology, Social Policy, Social Work as well as Communication and Media Studies.

Our campuses

The main campus at Lincoln is located in the centre of the historic city of Lincoln on the picturesque Brayford Pool waterfront. Brayford Wharf, once a Roman port, is now a lively modern marina full of pubs, restaurants, hotels and a cinema, and the high street lies at the foot of the historic quarter. The historic Castle Square and the third largest cathedral in Britain are the most popular attractions here, and help to transport over a million visitors a year back to medieval times. See below for a list of amenities near our campus.
