Established in 1862 as a teacher training college for the Diocese of Lincoln, it only gained full degree awarding powers in 2006. It attracts mature and local students, with 27% of the undergraduate body aged 21 or above at the start of their course, and 50% from a 30 mile radius. The courses often include a vocational element and many, but not all, engage with teaching and education subjects – of four foundation and nine honours degrees, eight include education-related studies or teaching. 2012 has seen a change in Government legislation regarding the use of the university title meaning that higher education establishments with more than 1,000 students can apply for the tile. Bishop Grosseteste University College Lincoln applied for the University title in June 2012 and hopes to be renamed 'Bishop Grosseteste University' in the near future.
Bishop Grosseteste offers Foundation and Honours degrees and Education and Subject courses at undergraduate and postgraduate level.
Courses on offer include: Undergraduate Level Foundation degrees
