What Our Students Say
“I chose this degree course mainly because I want to pursue a career in cybersecurity. I had offers from a few other universities but the staff and the quality of learning I would get by having the smaller group sizes at Lincoln College appealed more to me. Since I knew all the tutors beforehand it made the transition from Level 3 to BSc a lot easier to overcome.”
