This success reflects the very special student experience here at Lincoln, including the quality of teaching and the sense of academic community on campus. Our students tell us they value the variety of opportunities presented to them to engage in university life during and outside their studies, whether that is participating in real academic research or volunteering on local community projects with our excellent Students’ Union. While these qualities are difficult to quantify, these results indicate that the relationship between our students, teaching staff and colleagues across the institution is something of which we can all be proud.”
