Vice-Chancellor of Bishop Grosseteste University, the Reverend Canon Professor Peter Neil, said: “I have always been confident that we offer a rewarding experience to our students. However, to receive recognition from the students themselves is particularly pleasing.

“At BGU we pride ourselves on the quality of our teaching, the employability of our graduates and the life changing experiences our students receive. To know that this is also the view of the vast majority of our students is very rewarding.”

Lincoln College also scored very highly after they received a 94% satisfaction rating in the NSS.

Managing Director of Education and Training Mark Locking said: “These survey results, combined with our TEF grade and recent employability and earnings results really demonstrate the value of Lincoln College Career Degrees.”

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.

“It is this close sense of community, coupled with excellent teaching and outstanding facilities, that make the Lincoln experience so special.”
