About the University of Lincoln and Scholarship

The University of Lincoln is a public research university that was established in Lincoln, England, in 1861. It was recognized as a university in 1992, and in 2001 it took on its present name. The location of Brayford Pool and the main campus are both in the heart of Lincoln. Graduation ceremonies are held in Lincoln Cathedral, with satellite campuses located in Riseholme and Holbeach throughout Lincolnshire.

Hull School of Art (1861), Hull Technical Institute (1893), the Endsleigh College for the Preparation of Roman Catholic teachers (1905), Hull Central College of Commerce (1930), and Kingston upon Hull College of Education (1913) were among the educational institutions from which the University of Lincoln emerged. In 1976, these were combined to become Hull College of Higher Education, which later changed its name to Humberside College of Higher Education in 1983 after including several manufacturing, fishing, and food-related programs.


In its Strategic Plan 2022–2027, the university has objectives to place among the top 15 institutions in the UK. Lincoln was ranked number 17 by The Guardian, which is the highest ranking to date. It ranked second in business and economics and seventh in agriculture and forestry in The Complete University Guide rankings for 2017. The 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF 2014), the UK’s most recent national evaluation of university research standards, gave more than half of the submitted research it received a rating of “internationally excellent” or “world-leading.” In the 2017 Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF), it received a gold medal.

The institution was recognized as the best multi-faculty modern university in the UK in 2020 and was given the title of Modern University of the Year by The Times and Sunday Times Good Institution 2021. It reached its highest-ever position in the guide, rising to position 45 (out of 135).
