The University of Lincoln has jumped up a few places on this year’s Complete University Guide.

The university had gone up by 21 places to 78th place on the league table, which is published in the Independent. The list ranks 113 institutions.

Despite the apparent improvement, Lincoln has the ninth worst student to staff ratio of all the universities listed, with 22.9 students for each member of staff.

Even so, this is an improvement on last year’s Complete University Guide. This showed that Lincoln had the fourth worst ratio, at 23.7, which it shared with Greenwich.

Leeds Metropolitan, London South Bank, and Lampeter occupied the bottom three places when the 2009 guide was ranked by the student to staff ratio. For the 2010 guide, Lampeter cut its ratio to 15.5, putting it in 39th place for this measure. Leeds Metropolitan is now one place behind Lincoln, while London South Bank came second-to-last.

Prospects for Lincoln graduates have also improved over the past year, with the university moving up 20 points to 90th in that ranking.

Professor Scott Davidson, a pro vice-chancellor at the university, says: “This is great news, especially as Lincoln is such a young institution.”

Oxford came in first place again, and was awarded a score of 1000. London South bank came in last place, the same as last year, with a score of 280.
