Freshers week was everything I had hoped it be! The music, the laughter and the overall fun of it was something I could relive forever! Besides the rough mornings... The different University of Lincoln accommodations are all only 5mins from the Uni whether they are on campus or not. Mine specifically was modern with a specious communal area and beautiful views of the Lincoln Brayford on the top floor of Cygnet Wharf. The on-campus library is huge with 4 floors with books specialising in all areas. The top floor is strictly no noise for those who need pure silence. The students union is great and has its own stunning on-campus bar with floor to ceiling panoramic windows. They also hold a club night on Wednesdays in the on-campus SU gig venue. The course has been amazing with modules covering all areas of the subject. The balance of practical work and theory is great so you feel like you are gaining good hands-on experience. Lincoln is a small city but it has its amazing landmarks such as the Lincoln Cathedral and surrounding recreational grounds. There's also plenty of clubs, bars and restaurants for those who prefer the nightlife. Boring days in are hard to come by with the trampoline park and student nights at PlayZone.

Really enjoyable, a lot of information that helped set the pace for the next three years, Student accommodation was really lovely, en suite, communal washing machines, big room and beautiful view from the window. Rent was a good price and staff were always ready to help when needed. Library has many floors, different levels for quiet floor etc. A large range of books. many available online as well so you can read from your bedroom. Good opening hours so can go whenever you need it. Student union is helpful, they care about us and want to do what's best and take on advice Enjoyable subjects. From second year we were allowed to pick modules we liked to go alongside a few mandatory ones. Made me enjoy going to learn as i was doing exactly what i wanted. Tutors are always helpful and reply to emails with good time, offering support where they can and doing one on ones when necessary Lovely city, beautiful cathedral and views, not super busy but still has life to it. the christmas market is amazing and the amount of places you can go for a walk and scenery is plenty

Loved every moment. The university of Lincoln provided me with the best three years of my life. Being placed in student accommodation with great flat mates was the start to making Lincoln my new home. Amazing city and fab nightlife. I've just graduate and working as a qualified mental health nurse, thank you Lincoln!

Freshers week was really fun and good, the freshers fair allowed me to get loads more information about what was available. The universities accommodation was really good and everyone was friendly and would help out if they needed to. Really reasonably priced for the location. Always spaces in the library even in dissertation week. All the university staff are polite and helpful no matter where you are. Great sports facilities and offers an on site gym. Lectures always went further to ensure full understanding. They were also always available to pop and visit if needed. Tutors were also very supportive though the process. The course content was tailored and relatable to students interests. City life was good there's always a student night every night, well priced and isn't too spread out.

English and Literature Studies, Year 2

It was amazing! Me and my friends always love freshers week and make so many memories from it. One of the best parts about uni, and a great way to get to know people!

There are so many different accommodation options at Lincoln to suit different people and they're building more at the moment. I stayed in Cygnet wharf when it was brand new and I loved it, my flat was beautiful, my bedroom and en suite were amazing and the kitchen is just insane. Highly recommend despite it being pricey

The library is equipped so well for the amount of students, you never struggle to get books that you need and there are so many facilities for printing and doing work. The classrooms are great, there are plenty of seminar spaces always equipped with enough chairs for everyone and great for whatever you need them for, they can even be booked out by students to do projects. The SU is great, they have so many societies and opportunities for people to further themselves and make friends.

I love my course. The creative writing side of it helps me in so many ways and they never restrict my freedom, they always let me write about whatever I want to write about. The lectures are helpful because they give us all the information needed, and tutors push you to do your best and help you in whichever ways they can. I honestly couldn't recommend my course more.

I love lincoln as a city. It's small enough to feel homey and not too busy and yet big enough to still be a good city. It also has the modern parts and the older parts with the cathedral which is refreshing. The night life is amazing, very cheapcheap for students and so many offers for wherever you want to go.

Go into it with and open mind and a passion for reading and just take yourself from there. Be prepared to write in different styles that you've never thought of before but might grow to seriously love. Also talk to people! They all love very similar things

Pretty dead Quite good, covered well with essential More than expected Course is more interesting than the way they approach, they don't really teach what is essential for students in the first years (softwares). Personally I would love to move in at some point.

The student union is fairly active, they have weekly club nights on Wednesday and Tuesday which are great fun, as well as fairly cheap. The lecturers are all fairly passionate about what they teach and are quite engaging. There are a wide range of accommodation options available, all of which are fairly good value for money, and none are more than a ten minute walk to the university. All in all, although it's a new university it certainly has a lot going for it and will only get better with time as it developes.

Zoology, Year 2

Freshers consisted of two weeks of themed nights which were lots of fun and helped me bond with flatmates. Each night had a different theme, and some of my favourites included the paint party and glitter party as they were more interactive than some of the outfit theme nights. The paint party also had a bouncy castle which was great. The events were spread around different nightclubs so it stayed varied and exciting. Definitely going to next year's Freshers.

I am currently living in cygnet wharf, which is definitely the nicest accommodation the university has. The rooms have lots of board space to put pictures and other things on and the ensuite toilets are very clean and aesthetically pleasing. Although the rooms are slightly smaller than other accommodations, we have 3/4 beds so it is very nice to get the extra bed space. The kitchen is also beautiful; part of it contains full-length windows and as it is a high-rise building we have wonderful views. We also have a large TV in the kitchen and a walk-in cupboard containing the cleaning items, eg vacuums, so they don't clog up the living space. The sofas in the kitchen are slightly hard, however it is a new accommodation and the sofas have not been worn in so is expected.

The library is a very beautiful looking building, however slightly more table space (without computers there) is required. It contains high-quality computers and contains all the books needed for my degree. The lecture rooms are very large and contain large screens so it is easy to see what's going on wherever you are in the hall. The university gym is small however contains all the basics needed to keep healthy and active. The Swan student bar serves lovely food and is very cosy, and holds a quiz every Sunday which is great fun. The Towerbar is larger and great for watching the football. The engine shed, which holds student nights, is very large and has drinks at great prices.

The lecturers are great at explaining module content and make the content very interesting. We go on lots of trips, from zoos to ecology centres, which are great fun but also very enriching. Modules I study in the first year include genetics, animal behaviour and vertebrate physiology which are all very interesting. The balance of coursework and exams is also very good.

For a small city, there is a fair amount to do. You can visit the cathedral, go shopping and have fun in escape rooms during the day and then have a great choice of clubs to go to in the evening. There is often live music on at the engine shed which is also good. There are many great restaurants around the city as well.

The lecturers are always quick to respond if you ever have any questions and the lecture materials are always easy to follow. Most lecturers also record their lectures so you can access them whenever you want online. In the first year modules most modules grades are from 50% of coursework and 50% from exams, so no matter how you learn best you have a fair chance of getting the best grades possible. We do lots of interesting labs which help us get hands on experience in different module areas and the trips we go on are also great fun.
