Whichever you choose, you’ll still enjoy the Lincoln experience through our connected support services as we help you to explore and cultivate your potential.

Online Study Tips

Accessing your course content

You will access your course information through our online learning portal, Akoraka | Learn. 

The portal contains all the learning activities for each course. These include required readings, assignments and assessments, class materials and other important content. 

As soon as you enrol (assuming you’ve met all the necessary requirements), you’ll have complete access to Akoraka | Learn. 

Getting to know your lecturers and fellow students

Lincoln University is a whānau. You’re not simply one of our students; you’re part of our family. We’re just as interested in how you grow as a person as how you develop as a student. All the way through your online study, you will be able to engage with your lecturers and other students. 

Plus, each course integrates a range of collaborative activities, such as: 

  • Optional online tutorials
  • Discussion forums and group activities
  • Online chat opportunities 

Support for online learning

When studying online with us, you have access to our student support services and resources. We have a dedicated Online Student Success Advisor to provide academic and pastoral support throughout your studies. 

There is an online orientation for all new online students which you will be sent a link for once enrolled.

Te Kete Wānaka, the Learning, Teaching and Library website, also provides online resources to support your study, including a page of advice and tips specifically for online students.
