Frequently Asked Questions

If you're coming to Lincoln, here are some of our frequently asked questions and answers.

However, if you still have questions, contact us via or phone 0800 10 60 10 (New Zealand) or +64 3 423 0000 (international).
When do classes start for Semester 1, 2017?
Classes start on Monday 27 February. Check your own timetable in LUCAS and see Key Dates for more information. If you are a first-year student, you should plan to be on campus during the week before classes start to meet Faculty staff and other students, get course advice and complete enrolment.
How do I find out where my classes are?
On the front page of your Student Centre in LUCAS, there is a link to our timetable. By putting your courses into the timetable, you can see when the courses are taught and where. If you are planning ahead, don't forget to double-check the room just before the start of the semester - from time to time, we have to make a last-minute change.
My exam results don't come out till January. When will I know if I have a place at Lincoln? 
We will check your results when they are released in January. We'll email you to confirm that we have seen your results. If you didn't get the result you were hoping for, be patient. Lincoln University has programmes that will lead you into the degree, such as the Diploma in University Studies.  We will check to see which is the best programme for you, then when we have a plan for you, we'll be in touch.
If you have applied for a scholarship or accommodation, we'll let you know about that as well.
I have to do some practical work for my degree/diploma. Where can I find information about that?
First of all, if you are not sure whether your programme has a compulsory practical work requirement, then check the Practical Work page. Click on your programme and you will find a link there to your handbook. 
I'm not sure what to enrol in - how do I get some course advice?
If this is your first year studying an undergraduate degree or diploma at Lincoln, then you will find a course planner useful to select the best courses for your qualification. You will see which courses are compulsory and where you would have space to fill with an elective. The planners note the timetable block for each course an by following this you won't have any timetable clashes. 
If you have finished your first year you will find these planners useful as well, although if you need advice, please make contact with your course advisor in the Faculty.
How do I get help to use your online enrolment system, LUCAS?
The friendly staff in the Student Administration office are always happy to help. However, you might find the answer you are looking for in our handy guides.
I passed some courses at another New Zealand university. How do I transfer that credit to my Lincoln degree?
When you apply you should let us know that you have studied elsewhere. We will ask you to send us a copy of your official academic record from your last university. There is a fee to assess your application and to place the credit on your Lincoln record.
Sometimes we will need to ask you to supply us with course outlines so that we can complete a credit assessment. Our aim is to provide you with the most useful credit we can.
