Established in 1878 and one of the 8 government universities in New Zealand, Lincoln University is a nationally and internationally renowned university specialising in commerce and management, primary production, natural resources, science, engineering and social science.
There are many good reasons why each year thousands of students choose to study at Lincoln. Here are five:
1. At Lincoln you won't get lost in a crowd!
Because Lincoln is smaller than many universities, you are more than just a number. Making friends here is easy and the friends you'll make will last a lifetime. With students from all over New Zealand and from nearly 60 different countries from around the world, our campus is alive with people from all walks of life. You will also find that our teaching staff are friendly and approachable. At Lincoln, students come first and lecturers have an 'open-door' policy so are on hand to discuss projects and essays or to clarify a lecture topic.
2. Lincoln's campus is full of action
There is a great range of social, sporting and cultural groups on site, so there's always something exciting to do. The Lincoln University Students’ Association will help you settle in with Orientation week and entertain you with the many social events held throughout the year. Lincoln also has excellent facilities to help you learn as well as socialize!
3. Location, location, location
At Lincoln, we have the benefits of both city and rural lifestyles. Our campus is set in the beautiful Canterbury plains and provides everything you need, including accommodation in our own Halls of Residence. We offer the perfect environment for undisturbed study and we are just 20 minutes away from all that the city of Christchurch has to offer you: pubs, clubs, music, movies, theatre, the arts, and of course Christchurch's famous sporting events and facilities.
4. Lincoln offers a wide range of programmes in a variety of subject disciplines
Most of these studies involve theory, case studies, field trips, teamwork, and practical application of theory learnt. The practical components support the theory, rather than replace it, and provide an effective learning tool. The programmes also take an interdisciplinary approach meaning that many of the areas of study overlap and work together. This allows you to gain a broader understanding of your field of specialisation. As a result, Lincoln has earned a well-deserved reputation among employers for producing graduates who are adaptable, creative, resourceful and knowledgeable.
5. Lincoln's teaching is research-led and shows commitment to the use of innovative technology
Lincoln strives to be up-to-date with the latest developments around the world, often leading with its own innovations. Lincoln's research goal is to contribute to the economic transformation, social and environmental future of New Zealand. This is transferred to all students who learn and experience the most up-to-date developments from committed and forward-thinking teaching staff.
