University of Lincoln climbs Sunday Times table

Going up: The University of Lincoln made a climb of seven space in the Sunday Times University Guide.

The annual Sunday Times University Guide 2013 was published this weekend and shows Lincoln has climbed up a few spots in the league table.

The guide, which has run for 15 years and is regarded highly among universities and prospective students, now has the university at 58th place, seven spots higher than 2012.

According to the guide, Lincoln “provides outstanding facilities to heighten its students’ potential within a safe and friendly community”.

The rise in the table also comes from good student satisfactions and its graduate employment level — at present, 92% of Lincoln graduates were working or in further study six months after graduating, with two thirds in graduate roles.

Vice Chancellor Professor Mary Stuart said: “We are delighted that our continuous improvement in student satisfaction, graduate prospects and research quality continues to propel Lincoln up national league tables.

“We have made enormous strides in recent years and continue to invest in our facilities and our staff in order to offer our undergraduates the best student experience possible in a vibrant academic environment, underpinned by an excellent research base.

“Our increased ranking in the latest Sunday Times University Guide is another marker of our progress.”

The Sunday Times University Guide is 64 pages long, due to it sin-depth profiles of each university or university college in the table.

The guide’s editor, Alastair McCall, said: “If a university provides a great student experience, can offer good graduate job prospects, plus a strong track record for degree completion and outcomes, good rankings and students will follow.”
