Overall I have had an enjoyable time at university! Love the city and the course was mostly good. I have learnt a lot of new skills abd nade some amazing friends. I wish I had joined a few sports societies to fully embrace university more. Living in a slightly smaller city than other universities was perfect for me! Super handy living really near everything you'll need!
Offer oppurtunities for placements abroad. Have a good careers advice centre which ive heard is super useful! The uni/my course have provided me with vital skills to enter working life.
Loved the variety of interesting optional modules (electives) in 3rd year. Good variety of teaching methods. Overall, all the modules have been really interesting and well-taught. Then odd few modules were a bit unorganised, however, issues are generally resolved well. Good communication from staff.
Good student support and representation. Should tak more of students suggestions for more facilities and events
Nice cafe's around the uni, some of which are fairly cheap, also provides a nice working environment. The library has decent spaces to work, one floor is a silent which ia great. Multiple nice places to work around the uni. There is a lovely pub on campus run by the student union which looks over the brayford waterfront, can be quite cheap due to good deals.
The university is in walking distance to all of the student living blocks. The majority of private student houses are also within walking distance. The high street with a huge variety of shops, cafes and bars etc is within a 5 minute walk. A large morrisons is about a 10 minute walk from the uni, and a large asda and tescos about a 10 minute drive. All the uni buildings are within a 5 maybe 10 minute walk from each other so travelling around uni between lectures is no issue.
I have not personally tried out any sports clubs or societies. However, multiple friends do rugby and netball which they thoroughly enjoy. I have however used the uni gym to plan badminton. Overall facilities may be slightly limited comoared to other unis if you are looking for a wide range of options. I have also used a gym in the city and there are multiple to choose from, most are quite cheap and easy to get to from uni.
Feedback on essays is usually detailed, informative and very helpful. However, this is dependent on who marked it as feedback is sometimes lacking.
I have really enjoyed it however it has been difficult for me to make friends and the settling in period wasn’t easy and I felt there wasn’t much support in place. But I am enjoying the course and am more relaxed about things now
I have not heard about any of these with my university, so I would say it doesn’t make much effort with this
The tutors seem to make up the rules of the assignments as they go along and disregard the module guide that we are given at the start of each year, they also seem to change things half way through assignments which can lead to having to do it all again
Very good for the size of the campus however the software on the computers is not always up to date meaning some of my work is inaccessible on older versions of software
My accommodation is very close to my university and it only takes me 5 minutes to get to lesson and about 15 minutes to get to the city centre, which is very good in my opinion
There is a wide variety of both society and sports
Well, let me tell you, the student wellbeing is an absolute joke, they cancelled my upcoming sessions because I was unable to make it to one of them, they don’t seem to understand that people can’t always get themselves out of bed and make it to the sessions, I did email them and explain why I’d missed it and basically begged them not to cancel, but I got a blunt reply telling me they had cancelled my sessions, and I would now have to wait another 6 weeks for more sessions. If I could give it 0 stars I would
My university experience so far has had its fair share of ups and downs, but I’m now in my second year and I’ve found my feet. I’ve enjoyed my whole experience and I’ll treasure it forever. Lincoln is so lovely, and I know I’m going to live here for the rest of my life.
Our uni is very good to make sure that students can get as much help as they can with employment. Things such as the Lincoln Award, talks and workshops with people from the industry and how to be more employable in general!
What I like the most about my course is the range of topics we are taught and the how much effort the lecturers go to ensure we are happy. The thing I like the least about my course is when it comes to deadlines, communication is sloppy and teaching gets strained. It feels like they aren’t trying sometimes.
As a volunteer for our students union, I love it. I do all I can to ensure students are happy with their course and their SU. They do everything and more to ensure students and getting what they deserve and I enjoy working with them.
The facilities are good, but maybe could be a bit better. For the amount of students at the uni there isn’t enough facilities to go around and places to study, so it feels first come first served.
The university in a perfect place. In the middle of everything and can’t complain at all.
10/10. Variety is really good.
Support from the tutors regarding feedback is sometimes good, but sloppy. They give us plenty of feedback but take a lot of time to give it to us, but even though we have to have our assignments in by a certain deadline. Personal support could be much much better regarding mental health, not enough is being done.
Better but different than expected. Plenty of opportunities to make new friends. Warm community or students, however I believe that diversity within students and teaching staff is not the best.
Career centre with opportunities to book appointments to see a careers advisor. Events in which uni students can talk with potential employers.
Most: hands on, experimental, practical Least: thrown into deep end when it comes to learning new technologies
The SU regularly hold events on campus however I think the representation of students is not varied enough.
Fairly good. 2 on campus bars/ restaurants, plenty of social spaces and a great library.
Yes, all amenities are within a 5-30 minute walk from campus.
Wide range of societies, something for everyone to enjoy and get involved.
Feedback always given on blackboard for assignments. University offers counselling if needed and regularly checks up on students via email/text if they’re attendance is low.
Really good, so happy I came to Lincoln! Wouldn't want to be anywhere else. The students union is one of the best in the country and it's 100% worth it to get involved.
There's always a careers event or workshop going on, and the careers section of the uni is really helpful. The SU runs a "skills log" which helps us keep track of our employability skills.
I don't enjoy my course, but I picked the wrong one. Dissertations are a poor and outdated way to test the skills of students.
Student representation is great at Lincoln, however the sports facilities haven't been updated since early 2000s so could be better.
Pretty good, but sports could be better. That's not to say it's bad though - the facilities we have are always improving.
There could be a shop on campus, that would be much easier! But it's only a short walk to a large supermarket from most accommodations.
There's an amazing amount of sports and societies that are well represented at the University.
Support is quite good but too many students and not enough staff.
University has been so scary but I jumped right into it and am so happy I did because I’ve come out my first term as a much better person. I love the Uni of Lincoln and everything it has to offer. From the setting to clubs to facilities, it’s got exactly what I need and more.
There are so many workshops etc to help you with all of these different aspects
I like how much the lecturers want to help you and the ratio of coursework to exams. I like least how I don’t have as much choose one what modules I want to do
The SU could better communicate and communicate more often with students
Nothing bad to say they’re pretty standard
Yeah everything is nearby
There is a huge variety and you can make more if you want to
The univeristy is great for my course but also great for a social life. The resources offered are brilliant at helping further learning. There are lots of opportunities for personal development.
A lot of reading off PowerPoints and not enough independent information. We can read.
Not the best
Amazing. It's Opened so many doors and opportunities to me. However, it's also Made me depressed at times and Upset. It's been a massive roller-coaster, But I'm hanging on for the ride
Sending out Thousands of emails which can sometimes be annoying but it's for our own good
I like The openness of the course but I don't like how they throw you into it
Need a little more work but doing their best!
Very close to university, perfect location. There's not many shops close by but that's ok
VERY good! Wide range and A subject for everyone to enjoy!
I don't think there's enough.
i love it it's so much fun and i made a lot of amazing friends. I love my room its very big and light and i get to do the course i am passionate about as well as having a lot of fun
I always get emails about work placements and different opportunities
the most i like that we are given different papers and book recommendations the lest i like is that in seminars we don't do a lot
very understanding and nice
i have loved my university experience so far, i’ve made so many great friends and gained a lot of independence. from cooking and washing my clothes by myself, to joining societies and going on nights out, i’ve done a lot of things that i though i’d struggle to do, and i feel a lot better for it.
The uni regularly emails us about job opportunities, and has a careers service available for those who need support.
a good amount of contact hours, not too many but enough for the learning required. the thing i like the least is some of the lecture rooms we have lectures in, they’re not particularly comfy or easy to write in.
The Student Union has a variety of pubs and a club, and there always fun nights out planned.
The uni is right next to the town centre, meaning shops and restaurants are very close by and easy to get to. Most accommodations are set right by campus, i wouldn’t say any were more than a 15 minute walk away.
the variety of societies and sports are great, there are so many to choose from.
support offered by tutors is great and it’s easy to make an appointment to see them if you need support. essay feedback can sometimes take a while to be given, but it is pretty constructive. i have personally never used the personal support facilities at uni, but i’ve heard from friends that they are quite good
