Deserved Recognition

This isn’t the first time that Lincoln has been lauded for fantastic services. In fact, these survey results reinforce the recent results of the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) 2017, where Lincoln has been awarded Gold for delivering consistently outstanding teaching, learning and outcomes for its students.

Professor Mary Stuart, Vice Chancellor of the University of Lincoln, said: “I am proud of our performance, especially the way that so many of our subjects have been recognised for excellence and ranked in the top 10% in the UK. These results again reflect the value that Lincoln students place on the support - both academic and pastoral - they benefit from as undergraduates at this University.
