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:
