Why choose Lincoln
We've been helping students get where they want to be for over 126 years.
Not only does that make us one of this country's oldest tertiary institutions, we like to think we are also one of the best.
There are many good reasons to study at Lincoln University here are just a few.
Location, location, location
Lincoln offers the best of both worlds.
Our campus is set in the heart of the country, is the perfect environment for undisturbed study and getting here is simple.
Lincoln can provide everything you need, including accommodation in our halls of residence.
Christchurch city is just 20 minutes by car from the campus and offers a wide range of entertainment, including clubs, music, movies, theatre, the arts, and sporting events.
Don't get lost in the crowd
We're smaller which means you count. You're not just a number, here students come first.
Our lecturers have an 'open door policy'. That means they are always on hand to discuss projects and essays or clarify a lecture topic.
The size of the University makes it very easy to make friends.
Ours is an action packed campus – but still feels like home
Lincoln's buildings are a mix of modern and traditional, surrounded by trees and open spaces unlike many campuses that can be grey and impersonal.
It's easy to find your way around. You'll soon be soaking up the atmosphere chatting over coffee in the cafe, playing touch rugby on the field and heading off to lectures.
Our campus is also home to a wide range of social, sporting and cultural groups. Here you can study, but also have fun.
A wide range of programmes and courses
We offer more than 500 different course options.
Lincoln is at the forefront of developing programmes that meet the needs of industry and offer clear career pathways. Many of our programmes involve real industry experience, putting students one step ahead for life outside university.
This approach has earnt Lincoln a reputation amongst employers for producing top class graduates who are adaptable, creative, resourceful and knowledgeable. That means our students get jobs.
We welcome students from all over the world
More than a third of our student population come from over 55 different countries.
That makes us one of the most internationalised of all New Zealand universities. Just imagine the cultural diversity that brings to our campus.
