Unpronounceable Name, Unforgettable University

For over 150 years, Bishop Grosseteste University has been an integral part of Lincoln. Deep in the heart of this historic city and just a few minutes’ walk from the Castle and Cathedral, it has evolved from humble roots as an Anglican teacher training college into a TEF Gold rated institution. It is also the top university in the East Midlands for widening participation.

Beginning life in 1862 as an Anglican teacher training college for women, it was renamed Bishop Grosseteste College in honour of Robert Grosseteste; the thirteenth century scientist, philosopher, educator, and Bishop of Lincoln, to mark its centenary in 1962.

Widely recognised for its consistently high employability and student satisfaction rates, Bishop Grosseteste University is committed to being a leader in learning to inspire excellence, innovation and to enrich the lives of its students, staff and the communities it serves.

Though much at Bishop Grosseteste University has changed in the course of this progression, its commitment to providing first-class education and turning out graduates of the highest calibre who go out into the world to change people’s lives for the better has never wavered.

From their top-of-the-line teaching and study facilities, to their on-site cinema, they’ve worked hard to ensure their beautiful and peaceful campus has everything a student could need to succeed. More importantly, at the heart of all these services, they boast a team of educators and staff dedicated to advancement of their students through academic, professional and emotional support whenever and wherever it might be required.

Widely recognised for its consistently high employability and student satisfaction rates Bishop Grosseteste University is committed to being a leader in learning, to inspire excellence, innovation and to enrich the lives of its students, staff and the communities it serves.
