University of Lincoln Institutional Review

We are pleased to note the excellent outcome from the the last Institutional Review of the University by the QAA.

In the four areas where formal judgments were given, the report confirms that:

  • The academic standards of the University’s awards meet UK expectations for threshold standards
  • The quality of student learning opportunities meets UK expectations
  • The enhancement of student learning opportunities is commended
  • The quality of the University’s information about learning opportunities meets UK expectations.

This excellent result was a clear endorsement of the hard work that takes place across the University to maintain and enhance learning and teaching.
