Lincoln University

Lincoln University was founded in 1878 as a school of agriculture, became a university college in 1896 and achieved autonomous university status in 1990. It has close to 4,000 students. Lincoln University is situated approximately 20km from the City of Christchurch.

Lincoln University has been recognised for its applied, interdisciplinary approach, for its history of innovation in the areas of land-based production and natural resources and for its commitment to creating value for New Zealand and its people. A capability that spans the primary production value chain has contributed to the development of an educational philosophy which is based on relevance, understanding, and the ability to interpret and apply knowledge in practical situations for positive benefit.

Lincoln University provides learning, research and professional services utilising its core competencies in, Commerce, Science and Social Science, to focus on relevant domestic and international issues. A wide range of inter-disciplinary capabilities provide an emphasis on natural resource science and sustainable management for environmental, social and economic benefit.

There are four divisions at Lincoln: Commerce, Agriculture and Life sciences, Bioprotection and Ecology and Environment, Society and Design.

Lincoln University has extensive links with a number of universities in the EU. These include joint teaching and exchange programmes, especially at the post graduate level.
