Bishop Grosseteste University was established in 1862 as an Anglican teacher training college for women. To mark the centenary in 1962, the name was changed to incorporate the current ‘Bishop Grosseteste’ title, in honor of Robert Grosseteste, the thirteenth century scientist, philosopher, educator, and Bishop of Lincoln. In 2012 full university status was achieved and haven’t looked back since. We’ve seen a lot of things come and go since 1862, but we’ve never stopped providing first-class education and turning out high-calibre graduates who go out into the world and change people’s lives for the better.

In recent years we’ve undergone an explosion of growth in many areas, remaining a small and friendly university whilst expanding and developing our portfolio of courses into more exciting new areas than ever before. We still consider ourselves experts in education – we have been doing it for 160 years after all – but our teaching courses now sit alongside an exciting range of other disciplines. We currently educate over 2,000 students in a wide range of subjects – within our ever-expanding undergraduate portfolio, our traditional PGCE teacher training routes, work-based Foundation Degrees, Masters courses and even Doctoral study (and much more in between). We pride ourselves on being a supportive community, always striving to improve the lives of our students.
