About Lincoln University

Lincoln University is one of the country’s oldest tertiary education institutions and the only specialist land-based university in New Zealand. Founded in 1878 as a School of Agriculture, the University has long been held in high regard for its land-based teaching and research. This unique history, combined with more recent growth in land-based disciplines, means Lincoln University occupies a specialist position that covers globally-significant areas of learning such as agribusiness, agricultural science, soil, plant, food and animal science, bio protection and biosecurity, conservation and ecology, environmental management, supply chain management, marketing, property, spatial planning and landscape architecture, sport and recreation, and tourism management.

The University’s educational programmes, designed to meet the demands of industry, are taught by experts with comprehensive experience in a wide range of disciplines. A focus on practical, hands-on learning means in-demand graduates emerge from their studies work-ready and with a comprehensive network of industry contacts. The courses are designed to ensure students not only have an understanding of the opportunities and challenges facing the evolving agricultural sector, but also the skills and experience to navigate the modern working environment in every aspect, from sustainability to technology.
