About Lincoln University
Lincoln University was established in 1878 as an agricultural school. At that time, it was the only such institution in the Southern Hemisphere. Since then it has expanded to become a dynamic university specializing in programs in commerce and business management, production, natural resources, science, engineering, and social science. Approximately 3,700 students attend Lincoln and it has the highest proportion of international students of any New Zealand university. Lincoln has a well equipped Recreation Center, and offers a host of sporting and fitness programs including swimming, kung fu, tai chi, skiing, horse trekking, yoga, rugby, and squash.

Its 58 hectare campus is located a half hour from Christchurch, the largest city on the southern island. The southern island is a nature lover’s paradise and has some of New Zealand’s most stunning natural beauty.

With twelve major festivals throughout the year, Christchurch is considered one of New Zealand’s premier festival cities. It also has many parks and gardens and is often called the Garden City. Christchurch has a lot of exciting entertainment and restaurant venues, and offers a variety of sporting and recreational opportunities, including drifting down the Avon River or plunging toward earth on the end of a bungee cord.

About New Zealand
New Zealand is located in the southern hemisphere, southeast of Australia. It is a predominantly rural country composed of two main islands: the north island, which is home to New Zealand’s largest city, Auckland, and capital, Wellington, and the south island with its dramatic alpine scenery.

While most of its 3,600,000 inhabitants live in cities, New Zealand is truly an outdoor lover’s paradise. Its compact geography has allowed it to develop into one of the world’s leading destinations for ecotourism. Bungee jumping, rafting, kayaking, caving, scuba diving, paragliding, inner tubing, fly fishing, hiking, and mountaineering are popular pastimes and are readily available to the eco-adventurer.

The Maori, the indigenous people of New Zealand, have a rich oral tradition of creation legends and adventure stories. Many of the country’s prominent artists use Maori motifs and symbolism in their art, and the traditional Maori dance, haka taprahi, is performed to great effect before international rugby matches involving the popular national  team, All Blacks. 

New Zealand Educational System
Education in New Zealand tends to be more specialized, and students usually concentrate on one or two subject areas. Generally speaking, there is less interdisciplinary coursework than you find in the U.S. system.
