University of Lincoln crowned Modern University of the Year

The University of Lincoln has been named Modern University of the Year in The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2021.

The award highlights the University’s meteoric rise since its inception and Lincoln is the highest-ranked multi-faculty modern university in the UK, climbing to 45th (out of 135), its highest ever position in the guide.

The accolade follows a host of achievements for Lincoln this year, including being named one of the world’s greatest young universities in the Times Higher Education Young University Rankings, placing 14th in the UK for overall student satisfaction of the 129 mainstream universities in the National Student Survey 2020, and scoring a top five-star rating in the prestigious QS Stars ratings system of global universities.

Alastair McCall, editor of The Sunday Times Good University Guide said: “Lincoln’s progression to becoming our Modern University of the Year today is a remarkable one. The institution is transformed with high levels of student satisfaction and a course portfolio that is attuned to local, regional, national and international needs in the jobs market.

“Finishing as our highest-ranked multi-faculty modern university is no flash in the pan. Lincoln has been performing strongly for several years now and the opening of the medical school provides further proof of Lincoln’s arrival as one of the key players in the higher education sector, providing an outstanding education for students drawn to this beautiful city from across the country.”

Professor Mary Stuart, Vice Chancellor of the University of Lincoln, said: “I am delighted with this outstanding achievement for our University. It shows how our continued development has created a strong and vibrant institution.

“Our outstanding teaching and attention to our students’ needs, together with a world-leading ‘local to global’ research approach, and inventive partnerships with a wide range of industry partners, are widely recognised as key elements for universities of the future. I am extremely proud of this national recognition of the University of Lincoln and grateful to all staff and students for their contribution to our ongoing success story.

“These awards demonstrate our commitment to offering an outstanding all-round student experience and the University is incredibly grateful to the community of Lincolnshire and the beautiful city of Lincoln for providing such a supportive home for our exceptional students, and we know they’ll be as proud as we are.”
