University of Lincoln rises to 23rd place in student satisfaction table

The University of Lincoln soared 24 places up the league table in the 2018 National Student Survey, claiming 23rd place in the UK.

The 2018 Times Higher Education’s Student Experience Survey examined the opinions of more than 20,000 undergraduates on various topics out of 116 institutions.

The overall score was a marked jump from joint 47th place in 2017.

The University of Lincoln was also placed as 10th best in the UK for university facilities.

The rise also follows on from the jump to 47th place in the Guardian University Guide 2018 and a top 10 ranking for student satisfaction by postgraduate and international students in the Whatuni Student Choice Awards 2017.

Professor Mary Stuart, Vice Chancellor of the University of Lincoln, said: “At the University of Lincoln we have a strong partnership with our students, engaging them in all aspects of student life.

“It’s satisfying to see those our efforts have been reflected in a prestigious national university ranking, and most importantly, to see how that effort is valued here on campus by our students.”

Bishop Grosseteste University is often not included in the league tables due to the smaller size of the student body and the institution fell below the threshold for inclusion.

A spokesperson for the university said: “Our student satisfaction levels are extremely high – in fact over the past 10 years we’ve enjoyed some of the most consistently high satisfactions levels in the UK, according to the National Student Survey.”
