Ways to Study
However you choose to structure your study with us, you’ll be part of our close-knit family.
We’ll do our best to ensure that you succeed at your objectives and have a fantastic time making friends and memories as you study.
Committing to study
Studying with us doesn’t necessarily have to be a 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday commitment. If your life is too busy for full-time study, there are plenty of other options.
With part-time study, you can spread the commitment needed for a full-time programme over a longer period.
This is a good option if you want to continue working as you study, have other interests or commitments, or are caring for a family member or someone else.
Although it will take longer to complete your degree (up to a maximum time limit), the courses you complete and the qualification you earn will be the same as for a full-time student.
If you choose part-time study, you’ll need to take between one and three courses per semester. Some programmes are specifically designed to be part-time.
These include the Executive Development Programme, the Regional Diploma and secondary school programmes that are taught away from the Lincoln campus.
Immigration New Zealand does not normally approve part-time study for international students.
Take the opportunity to study over the Aotearoa New Zealand summer period, when universities traditionally take a break.
