About

Lincoln University is a uniquely specialised land-based university.

Helping our students grow is what we are all about. We encourage them to do it their way, with diverse learning that fits their ambitions in an environment allowing them to flourish.

Qualifications we offer range from certificate level through to PhD, and our teaching and research covers all activity associated with the land-based sectors to meet the needs of not only New Zealand, but also the world.

Lincoln students come from around New Zealand and from more than 80 countries, and our graduates can be found around the globe making a difference.

Our low student to lecturer ratio means more personalised attention for our students, and to support practical applied learning a large number of our courses have field trip components, visiting anything from a business, vineyard, or forest.

We help students to graduate with degrees that provide many varied employment opportunities. Our applied programmes prepare students for successful careers and our alumni have a 15% higher employment rate than graduates from other New Zealand universities.

It all adds up to, when the time comes, our students being ready to go out there and grow the future for themselves and others.
