Lincoln University

University

Lincoln University recognises that the world is changing: as global resources dwindle, the population grows and the environment is compromised, consumer demands are increasing and mankind still wants to live well on our planet. There has never been a better time to take a specialist land-based qualification. Since its inception in 1878 Lincoln has been a key contributor to the core interests of New Zealand and the global economy – and our graduates are well-placed to tackle the big issues, to: feed the world, protect the future, and live well. Lincoln University is highly connected to industry for research collaboration and commercialisation, which in turn informs our teaching across three broad areas: agriculture and life sciences; environment, society and design; and commerce.

Canterbury stretches from ocean to the Alps, and is a land of plains and peaks. It is a place of variety and innumerable attractions.

Within two hours of an international airport, you can ski, play golf, bungy jump, go whitewater rafting, mountain biking, wind surfing, whale watching, and visit world-class vineyards and gardens. Where else in the world can you do that?

A must-see is New Zealand’s highest peak, Aoraki Mount Cook. Go hiking in Arthur’s Pass National Park or just wander around the picturesque bays and villages of Banks Peninsula. And then there’s New Zealand's second-largest city, Christchurch known as 'The Garden City'.

Christchurch is a beautiful city where you can cycle alongside the river, stay in good hotels and indulge in fine sophisticated dining, and a city where, just 15 minutes from the centre, you can scramble up mountain bike tracks or ride a wave at a surf beach.
