Don’t miss out on university – there’s a place at BGU waiting for you.
We’ve been educating students in the historic heart of the City of Lincoln for over 150 years, located on a beautifully green and pleasant campus just a few minutes’ walk from Lincoln Cathedral, Castle and the old Roman city. We’re set on a single-site campus, so just about everything you need is close by, whether it be your tutors, your friends, your lectures or the places in which you like to relax.
We’re proud of our excellent employability rates – our graduates go on to get jobs because our courses are designed to prepare them to succeed in the workplace. That’s why we’re ranked as a top 3 university in the UK for student employability. And our students also have an amazing time with us – we’re the 2nd highest ranked public university in England for student satisfaction, according to the 2016 National Student Survey.

Joanne’s Clearing story
“BGU was my first choice uni – it always had been since I started considering drama as a career in year 10. However, I was unable to finish my A-levels and so I thought I wouldn’t be able to go. I ended up doing hairdressing, and then a business Higher National Certificate (HNC).
My old drama teacher was a student at BGU – he would always talk about it, and as my career dream was to also be a drama teacher, I knew I wanted to be at BGU. Drama had always been my passion and it wasn’t until I went back to my old secondary school to assist with a school production that I really realised I wasn’t happy. The staff and children there persuaded me to take a risk and leave my job at the hair salon to chance getting in – it was the best thing that’s ever happened to me! I’m finally working towards my dream career!
I applied through Clearing as it was all very spontaneous and last minute. I literally left my job at the salon and drove straight up to the university to just talk about my options – and ended up leaving with an offer! The Clearing process at BGU was so easy. All the staff were very supportive and answered all the questions I had – I knew straight away I’d made the right choice.
The BGU campus is small and everyone is very friendly, so you don’t feel out of place on campus and there’s a real sense of community. The staff are very supportive and will always assist you with everything they can. Lincoln is also relatively small, but with lots of shops, culture, friendly people and opportunities for students. I live nearby so I knew a lot about the city beforehand, but I really enjoyed seeing it in a new light as a student and making the most of it.
If you find yourself in Clearing don’t panic! Be positive and make sure you ask questions. I found myself feeling stressed sometimes because I was confused, but after asking questions I found the whole process very easy and exciting.”
