The summer school students will find themselves located in the heart of one of the world’s great historic cathedral cities with Lincoln Cathedral dominating the city at the top of Steep Hill and celebrated as one of the finest medieval landmarks in Europe. Together with Lincoln Castle and the cobbled Bailgate, it is a reminder of the city’s long and fascinating history, which gave birth, among the other, to the famous mathematician George Boole.

The University’s modern campus overlooks the café culture of the Brayford waterfront. The modern marina is filled with popular bars and restaurants and a cinema, while the city centre and uphill areas offer a more diverse and cultural scene.

Lincoln is one of the safest and friendliest cities in the UK with its main attractions within a short walk of the city centre. The combination of a vibrant atmosphere and warm community feel makes Lincoln a fantastic place to visit and study.

The University of Lincoln is situated about 130 miles north of London. The Times newspaper refers to Lincoln as having effected “the most dramatic transformation of any university in recent times”, with more than £200 million spent on building a stunning modern campus in the heart of a beautiful and ancient small city.
