Lincoln University jumps 13 places up the Times’ University Guide table. Ranked at no. 74 out of 122 universities listed, Lincoln University is statistically one of the fastest climbers in this league table, among other universities in the UK.

Back in June Harper-Collins’ Good University Guide recognised Lincoln University as a ‘big climber,’ after jumping 17 places in relation to past rankings.  At this rate of climb, roughly 15% better than past rankings, it is a significant improvement in the space of three months.

A salient fact the Times’ Good University Guide stated about Lincoln University was that there are currently only three universities devoting as much of their tuition fee income to bursaries and scholarships as Lincoln.  Additionally, the dropout rate of 14% is both an improvement on previous years and better than the average for the subjects on offer, given the entry requirements.

Professor Scott Davidson, Pro Vice Chancellor at the University of Lincoln, commented: “The Sunday Times University Guide is further proof that Lincoln is setting itself high standards and expectations as a higher education establishment. Our aim is to improve year on year and to give students an all-round university education that gives them the foothold they need for their chosen career.”

Lincoln’s rise up the rankings places it within close reach of a group of strongly performing traditional and post-92 institutions.
