International Student Advisors


Living and studying in a new country can provide many exciting new opportunities and sometimes unforeseen challenges. The University is here to support and guide you to achieve your goals and have the best experience while studying in New Zealand.


There are two International Student Advisors dedicated to supporting your pastoral care and wellbeing needs. Denise Pelvin and Dee Hannam are both available for all international students to approach at any stage during your time at Lincoln.


For assistance from Dee or Denise, please email internationaladvisors@lincoln.ac.nz.


We recommend reading the International Student Guide [PDF 13MB] for useful information about living in New Zealand and studying at Lincoln University.
