Description

Located in the historic cathedral city it shares its name with, the University of Lincoln (UoL) traces its roots back to 1861. Granted university status in 1992, UoL is now home to 13,000 students, with around 100 different nationalities represented among its student population. The university’s main campus is situated on the picturesque Brayford Pool marina, which comprises waterside accommodation, a performing arts centre, the Engine Shed live music venue, and numerous bars and restaurants. It has two other more rural campuses in the Lincolnshire towns of Riseholme and Holbeach. Brayford Pool has recently benefitted from a multi-million pound investment in facilities such as recording studios, production studios and research laboratories, which are part of a larger Science and Innovation Park project designed to provide science students with professional-standard, state-of-the-art facilities. Its campus redevelopments also allow space for industry and business partners in, what the university describes, as a learning and development environment where students benefit from having closer links with major employers, such as Siemens. The university has won awards for its approach to industry-engagement and its business incubation centre, Sparkhouse, has supported the development of more than 300 new businesses. UoL also prides itself on supporting the local community, with involvement in the Lincoln Book Festival, the Lincolnshire Business Awards and Sports Awards, and the Frequency Festival of Digital Culture. It also hosts free-to-attend public lectures where internationally recognised experts are invited to share their knowledge, with past speakers that have included Sir John Hurt, Dame Carol Ann Duffy and Professor Robert Winston Lincoln itself offers students a safe and friendly environment, close to city centre amenities such as cinemas, galleries, shopping, restaurants, bars and nightclubs. Lincoln is also steeped in history. The university is built on an Iron Age site, which later became a Roman, then Viking, settlement. When its cathedral was built in the 11th century, it surpassed the Great Pyramids as the tallest man-made structure in the world, while its medieval castle was constructed under William the Conqueror.
