University Homepage:

Established in 1878, Lincoln is New Zealand’s specialist land-based university. We are 100% committed to transforming land, people and economies. Our specialist qualifications are renowned for their fantastic mix of research-led teaching and “roll your sleeves up” practicality. From the high country to the high street, land-based sectors are at the heart of the action and much of the New Zealand economy revolves around land: property; wine; infrastructure; city planning; tourism; parks; public gardens and most of our major exports.

Lincoln University regularly assesses the market for new areas where employers demand graduates with specific expertise such as Biosciences, Water Science, Supply Chain Management, Environmental Management and Viticulture and Oenology.

Careers & Employment is centrally located in Library Teaching and Learning and offers a comprehensive service to students, recent graduates and employers of graduates.
