Exclusions to the tuition fee waiver option:

  • Master of Water Science Management (course enrolments at the University of Canterbury)
  • Master of Natural Resources Management and Ecological Engineering
  • CPA Australia membership and enrolment in CPA Australia exams are not covered as the fee waivers apply to Lincoln course enrolments only.
