Fee waiver scheme extended for postgraduate programmes
11 July 2022 | News
Lincoln University has extended its popular fees waiver scheme to cover postgraduate study options for domestic students until the end of 2023.
First introduced in 2020 amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, the scheme aims to help meet a growing need for experts in the food, fibre and environmental management sectors.
The offer includes postgraduate certificates and diplomas, as well as taught master’s degrees and the taught component of research master’s programmes.
These study areas cover subjects including agricultural systems, food innovation, conservation, environmental management, accounting, sport and recreation management, applied science, commerce and many more.
As a specialised land-based university, Lincoln has strong connections with the food, fibre and environmental sectors, conducting valuable research for the industry and producing highly employable graduates.
Lincoln University Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Student Life, Damian Lodge, says a postgraduate education is one of the best ways for students to take their career prospects and expertise to the highest level, and the fee waiver extension enhances this opportunity.
“We are delighted to be able to remove cost barriers to study by extending our fees free offering for our postgraduate programmes until the end of 2023.
"Whatever a student’s chosen discipline, they will benefit hugely from the academic rigour and practical experience offered at Lincoln as we support them to work towards their goals.
“As well as enjoying a wealth of advanced learning options, Lincoln postgraduate students become part of a thriving and inclusive community that helps them to secure industry contacts and professional development opportunities.
“This makes them extremely employable in a range of sectors urgently needing more qualified experts.”
The fee waiver is open to domestic students (including New Zealand citizens and permanent residents) and does not include course costs or the student levy.
Several additional study programmes originally covered by the waiver, including graduate certificates and diplomas, remain fees free until the end of 2022.
Students are encouraged to apply as soon as possible to take full advantage of the scheme and potentially complete an entire qualification for free.
