The University of Lincoln has dropped out of the top 50 in The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2020.

The university was placed in 42nd position last year but slipped nine places to 51 in the table this year.

Despite the decline, the University was still rated as number five in the East Midlands, with Loughborough holding on to top spot for a second successive year.

The Good University Guide provides rankings for UK universities and a comprehensive overview of higher education in Britain. It includes profiles on 134 universities and the rankings are based on the latest data published within the last two months.

Whilst the University of Lincoln fell out of the top 50, it did score highly on a student survey for teaching quality (79.5%) and for student experience (79.3%).

A University of Lincoln spokesperson said: "At Lincoln, we place students at the heart of everything we do, which is why we are rated Gold in the national Teaching Excellence Framework."

"These are exciting times for Lincoln, particularly as we start a new academic year and welcome a wonderful group of new and returning students, including the first undergraduates to enrol at the new medical school. This development, delivering world class medical education in Lincolnshire with our partners from The University of Nottingham, will train the doctors of the future, serving the healthcare needs of our region."
