The University of Lincoln has risen to 22nd, its highest ever position, in The Guardian University Guide.
This is a significant rise for the institution, which last year placed 47th.
The university now places higher than many elite Russell Group universities such as the University of Sheffield (39th), Newcastle University (27th) and the University of Edinburgh (28th).
The guide, published today, ranks 121 universities on a number criteria including student satisfaction, staff to student ratio and the money spent on each student.
It found that 88% of Lincoln students were satisfied with their course and that 76% of them found a career within six months of graduation.
It is the latest in a range of accolades for the university, which include a rise to 43rd position in the Complete University Guide and a TEF Gold rating – the highest standard possible – in a national independent assessment of teaching quality in higher education.
Professor Mary Stuart, Vice Chancellor of the University of Lincoln, said: “I am enormously proud of our University community and am grateful to all staff and students for the contribution they have made to our success.
“Students are at the heart of everything we do at Lincoln, and it is always gratifying that the hard work we put in to creating the best possible student experience is reflected in prestigious league tables which help prospective students make their choice about their future.”
