Female professors at Lincoln earn on average £7,686 less than male professors

The report is shocking

A new report by the University and College Union (UCU) reveals that, on average, men are being paid £6,103 more than women in Higher Education, equating to £528 million per year.

At the University of Lincoln, the pay gap equates to £7,686 – with male professors on average earning £71,004 compared to female professors who are earning £63,318.


This pay gap exists in 154 Higher Education Institutions and in only eight, women are paid equally.

Whilst the difference in earnings at Lincoln is surprising, the university with the highest pay gap is the City University with male professors being paid £15,992 more than women.

Reports also showed the pay gap is 11.1% in Lincoln, as opposed to 16.3% at Russell Group Universities.
