About Bishop Grosseteste University:

Situated in a green environment, within a stone's throw of the old Roman city, Lincoln Castle, Lincoln Cathedral, and the city centre, Bishop Grosseteste University is a top choice for students who take a holistic approach to studying. Like Landau Campus, the university has its roots in a teacher training college, and education is still a core area of research and teaching. A small university of just over 2,000 students, with a modest number of international students, BGU offers a friendly and caring atmosphere and provides excellent opportunities to get immersed in the English language. Undergraduate courses at BGU include English, TESOL and Linguistics, and Drama; two of the university's postgraduate courses lead to an MA in English Literature and to an MA in Education with TESOL.

"I love that the lecturers know your name and you aren't just a face in the crowd."
