University of Lincoln

Robotics and Autonomous Systems MSc

OVERALL UNIVERSITY RATING
Tell us about your overall university experience so far.

My experience so far has been excellent. The most important thing was being around people who are driving their respective fields forward with their research, which is very motivating. The course is well planned and I am very optimistic about my future.

Job Prospects
How does your uni make efforts to increase your employability (careers department, work placements, transferable skills)?

There are weekly guest lectures from academics working in my field and also industry partners. We can choose to work on a project with them which could potentially even lead to a job opportunity.

Course and Lecturers
What do you like most and least about the way your course(s) are taught?

The course content all falls into place really well. The modules are very complementary each semester. Instead of working on isolated topics, I get to see everything come together quite nicely. My current modules are Computer Vision, Machine Learning, Advanced Robotics and Frontiers of Robotics Research. One thing that could be improved is that some modules have assignments that require knowledge of topics that are taught near the end of the semester which doesn't leave much time to come up with the best solution to the given problem.

Students' Union
What do you think of your Students' Union in terms of student representation and facilities?

The students union is quite active and I follow their Instagram page which is a good way to get notified of any events they organise. The SU also runs a couple of bars and pubs in the campus which are a great place to hang out. The Swan in particular hosts games and quizzes which are quite fun. Other than the activities the SU also helps with any problems that students face. But, I personally haven't needed that yet.

Uni Facilities
How good are your university’s facilities?

- The labs have computers powerful enough to run the robot environment simulations I need. - There are teams working on real robots in the field of agriculture, elderly care, manipulation, transportation etc. - I have participated in studies in sports and their labs are quite good too. There's have a Human Performance Centre with labs for testing sports performance. - As part of another study I participated in, I used a Body Composition Analyser which was very interesting. They also has a 3D body scanner. Overall students have access to some pretty interesting equipment and facilities learning and conducting studies with.

Local life
Is your university in a good location in terms of distance to accommodation and local amenities?

Lincoln is quite calm and the people are nice. The University is near the centre of the city so most places are within walking distance. There's a really nice Cathedral, a Castle and also a Museum which are quite fun to visit. There are also some pretty good restaurants, pubs and clubs.

Societies and Sports
How would you rate the variety of societies/sports?

There are a bunch of clubs and societies like rowing but I don't participate so I don't know much about them. I have seen the university post about the teams going out to compete.

Student Support
How good is the support offered by the uni? Think both academic (tutors/feedback) and personal (counselling, etc).

The tutors are very interactive and its quite easy to get a hold of them for any problems that I may have. The Library also has subject experts who are there to help with any course related help we may need. There's also counselling facilities for students but I haven't needed them so I don't know much about that.

Marketing MSc

OVERALL UNIVERSITY RATING
Tell us about your overall university experience so far.

Positive, my undergrad was very structured and fun while I was a full time student. Since I have been part time and working a part time job it has been much more stressful. The university does not support or cater to part time students which is very disappointing.

I couldn't have gone anywhere else. Lincoln has got better and better since I've been here and starting gaining a reall good reputation for a top 20 UK uni. Definitely the best years of my life with career support, sports facilities, on-site gym, regular events and a great city life.

Sport and Exercise Science BSc (Hons)

OVERALL UNIVERSITY RATING
Tell us about your overall university experience so far.

The course has improved during my third year due to more hands on experience. The area of Lincoln is a good area however missing leisure experiences. The accommodation is becoming a bit dated (privately owned). Sport and societies are accessible however, not fully combined with courses to allow full participation.

Pretty good. I’ve met lots of new friends and done things I wouldn’t have ever had the opportunity to do elsewhere. My course has taught me a lot about the subject and how I can become an employable graduate.
