The relatively small nature of Lincoln gives it a family atmosphere which larger colleges cannot replicate, allowing everyone to get to know pretty much every other member of the JCR really quickly.

I was totally confused about which college I should apply to for PPE until I walked into Lincoln. The beauty of the ivy in full bloom was a stunning first impression, but the more I found out about it, the more I realised that it really was the place I wanted to be. The relatively small nature of Lincoln gives it a family atmosphere which larger colleges cannot replicate, allowing everyone to get to know pretty much every other member of the JCR really quickly. This is supported by the structure of the accommodation, which allows undergraduates to live in close proximity (and extremely centrally) for all three years of their course. PPE is the most flexible course I've come across and I value the extent to which we can choose the direction of our studies, even at undergraduate level. It is also an extremely popular course with employers, because it provides students with strong reasoning, numerical and argumentative skills.

I also feel very grateful to Lincoln for supporting me financially, through the Blues Fund (for sporting endeavours), the book grant scheme and, most recently, the Tatham Exhibition. The College’s generosity has allowed me to pursue a Blue in cricket, where I am vice-captain of the Blues team, and a Half Blue in rackets and real tennis. College sport has been just as much fun, and the social side of being part of LCFC has been a highlight of my time at Lincoln so far. For all those looking for a friendly and fun-loving college with an excellent academic record, I could not recommend it highly enough!
