Their four week trip had the principle aim for the students to learn English and experience New Zealand culture, and to understand and learn about wine production here.
 
They participated in a range of activities which included a field trip to visit vineyards and wineries in Waipara.
 
One of the visit organisers, Dr Bin Tian from Lincoln’s Department of Wine, Food and Molecular Biosciences, said the visiting students and staff were impressed by the University’s interactive teaching and appreciated the efforts that staff put into the short course programme.
 
“Some of students have also expressed their great interest in applying for Master’s study at Lincoln University in the future."
 
The visit and programme of activities is expected to initiate more collaborations in teaching and research between the two universities.
