Lincoln University

New Zealand | Auckland

Overview

Lincoln University is one of the leading higher education institutions in New Zealand, specialising in land use and management. Its Maori name is Te Whare Wanaka o Aoraki. The university started out in 1878 as a school of agriculture linked to Canterbury College. As agriculture became the crucial foundation for New Zealand’s international trade, the school grew into a college, and in 1990 became an independent institution. Lincoln’s mission is to address the challenges “Feed the World”, “Live Well” and “Protect the Future”. As such, it has a particular focus on teaching research linked to sustainability and climate change. For example, the university hosts the National Centre for Nitrous Oxide Measurement. The Faculty of Agribusiness and Commerce teaches students how to run successful and sustainable agricultural businesses. The Faculty of Agriculture and Life Sciences focuses on improving agricultural productivity through knowledge of biology, technology and other scientific disciplines. The Faculty of Environment, Society and Design teaches disciplines such as landscape architecture and tourism. The University Studies and English Language Division is an opportunity for students to attend who lack the necessary entrance requirements to attend the main university, or who want to brush up on their English language skills. The Lincoln-Telford Division is a separate campus based on a 921-hectare working farm, giving students a unique work experience and research opportunity. It is one of several farms around New Zealand owned by Lincoln University. As well as providing a living example to students, profits from the farms go towards scholarships.
