Lincoln lands one place AHEAD of Cambridge in best uni rankings

We came five places above Oxford, too

Lincoln has been ranked ahead of both Oxford and Cambridge in this year’s‘s “Best University” student awards.

We ranked 45th with a score of 4.21 out of 5. The results reference “state-of-the-art” facilities at our “stunning, award-winning” Brayford campus.

Our pints cost a mere £2.90 (compared to the £6 pints served in London), and our average living costs are £7,200. On top of that, 93% of our grads go on to full-time work or employment – plus, we have Superbull.

Sadly, we have dropped 12 places since 2015, from 33rd – but we won’t dwell on that.


So next time you meet someone from Oxbridge, you can hold your head high in the knowledge that people at Lincoln have topped the supposed best unis in the world.
