The University of Lincoln is based in the historic English city of Lincoln – home to one of only four surviving originals of the 1215 Magna Carta and one of only two originals of the 1217 Charter of the Forest.
We are proud to lead the 1215.today initiative in collaboration with local, national and international partners – we recognise our obligation to champion the rights enshrined in these landmark documents for a new generation as we celebrate 800 years since their sealing.
Named among the top 10 modern universities in the UK by The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2015, the University of Lincoln has around 13,000 students and 1,500 staff with our main campus located on the city’s picturesque Brayford Pool marina.
We have some of the most satisfied students in the UK and have been commended for the ground-breaking ways in which we engage students in research alongside leading academics. We are proud to be home to world class researchers with more than half of our research judged to be internationally excellent or world leading. We are also recognised as setting a blueprint for excellence by collaborating with industry through our pioneering approach to working with employers.
