As the 2nd highest ranked university in the UK for student employability*, Bishop Grosseteste University (BGU) is a unique place, somewhere you’ll form friendships and have experiences that will shape the rest of your life. Don’t just take our word for it – take it from our students and graduates who say things like this:
“This was my third year living away from home, but the first place I really called home. I love it here.”
Laura, Drama in the Community graduate
We’re set within a single-site campus, so just about everything you need is within easy reach. This means you won’t have to wander through an urban sprawl just to get a cup of coffee or attend a lecture. Everything is close by, whether it be your tutors, your friends, your lectures or the places in which you like to relax.
We’ve been here in the historic heart of Lincoln for over 150 years, a beautifully green and pleasant campus often ablaze with colour and pulsating to the rhythm of our samba band, just a few minutes’ walk from Lincoln Cathedral, the medieval castle and the old Roman city. We’ve seen a lot of things come and go in that time, but we’ve never stopped providing first-class education, turning out graduates of the highest calibre who go out into the world and change people’s lives for the better.
In recent years we’ve undergone an explosion of growth, expanding and developing our portfolio of courses into more exciting new areas than ever before. We still consider ourselves experts in education – we have been doing it for over 150 years after all – but our teaching courses now sit alongside an exciting range of other subjects, from business to psychology, foundation degree to doctoral studies, and much more in between.
We keep developing our campus to ensure that our students have a fulfilling learning experience and a rewarding university life. We’ve recently refurbished our student accommodation and built a brand new hall of residence, enhancing the BGU student experience and creating a real home away from home.
We know that choosing where to go to university is a huge decision and not one to be taken lightly. That’s why we’ve tried to fill this website with all the details you’ll need to make an informed choice. But if you feel you need more help in getting answers, our amazing team of academic and support staff are always on hand to help.
As a BGU student, we’ll support you, we’ll challenge you, we’ll make you feel at home. That’s what we do. It’s what we’ve always done. So click the links above, explore this website and perhaps even come along to one of our open days to find out more.
