Lincoln University students: our LincOE programme offers you the opportunity to study overseas for a semester or a year as part of your degree.

Lincoln University students have been studying overseas as part of their degrees since 1975. We encourage overseas study opportunities for students, as we recognise that the benefits of international study are becoming increasingly significant in today’s global workforce.

The Lincoln University Overseas Exchange (LincOE) programme in brief:

* Study at any one of our partner institutions in Canada, Europe, USA or South America
* Continue to pay Lincoln University fees only (scholarships and Studylink are still available)
* Credit your overseas courses back to your Lincoln degree – there’s no need to extend the length of your studies
* Study overseas for one semester or an academic year
* Meet people from a different culture and make new friends
* See another part of the world without pausing your studies
* Study subjects in addition to those available at Lincoln and broaden your knowledge of a particular discipline.

Where can I study?
Here are a list of our exchange partners:

* Colorado State University, USA

You will normally need a B average, be fit and healthy, and be a good ambassador for Lincoln University.
