Rural New Zealand

Coming from California, my ideas of sustainability and conservation were centered around the stereotypical "green" concepts such as banning plastic bags and driving electric vehicles. Studying at Lincoln University has broadened my perspective of conservation, allowing me to recognise the importance of native and introduced species, sustainable agriculture, and much more. However, being surrounded by rural kiwi's has been both a blessing and a curse. At times, it can feel like you're stuck out in the middle of no-where with a bunch of people in shorts and gum boots. Luckily, I've found my crowd in the people that stand out; those with colorfully dyed hair, those who speak out against controversial agricultural practices, and those who ride scooters around the campus. I couldn't have asked for a better experience in New Zealand, thanks to Lincoln University and especially those involved with the soil science department :)

New Zealand

New Zealand and Lincoln University was an absolute blast and I had a wonderful experience while I was here. However, if you come to NZ for study abroad it is quite difficult to travel anywhere else besides the north and south islands. It is just so far from any other country besides Australia and is more expensive then you may expect. Unlike my friend who studied abroad in Thailand was able to see 8 other countries while he was there because traveling and living was so much cheaper. If I could do it all again I would choose somewhere in Asia or Europe so I could travel more and make New Zealand just a two month trip sometime in my future

What would you improve about this program?
This program could improve by planning cheap and fun trips for students to travel! It is quite difficult to travel in or around NZ, especially if you do not have a car.

Lincoln Uni Landscape Architecture

Lincoln University is very welcoming to international students. Lincoln University's Landscape Architecture program was also very accommodating to international students. The program is in depth and intensive with it's topics of study with very insightful tutors. It was interesting and beneficial to see landscape architecture from a slightly different perspective in a completely different part of the world. I would highly recommend this program if you are looking for thorough and hard-working landscape architecture studies.

What would you improve about this program?
Better coordination between tutors, or less overlap of tutors feedback at once.

Good experience

Totally, I spent a good study experience here. You can meet many international students, even though most of them were from China. In addition, kind teachers would love to help you solve all problems, regardless of life in NZ and study in university, if you would like to ask for help. On the other hand, the time of lecture is short, only 20 hours per week. Therefore, students have many leisure time to manage what you want to evolve.

A wonderful experience

I was learning English here before I entered my university study in New Zealand in 2015. The Non-IELTS pathway study was incredibly helpful because rather than teaching linguistic skill only, this program is also focusing on application in university life such as how to write academic papers and participant group discussion, which are necessary skills to be survived with various assignments in the university courses.

I love the school!

It’s a very nice school! I used to be a student there. I love the teachers who are full of humor. I love the building srounded by cherry trees. I miss the wonderful time studying English with classmates. I’d like to recommend this school to all the people who want to improve their English. You will learn lots and lots language skills and begin to be familiar with English. Importantly, you will feel more than comfortable when studying there.

Good place for improving your English Skills

I found LU English Language School very useful, as it helped me in terms of speaking and writing skills. I only did English Course for 4 months, but this has helped me to prepare myself entering to university level. The teachers are very supportive, as well as the environment. They always encouraged us to speak English all the time. I really enjoy my time there.
I highly recommend English Language School for those who want to improve their English skills. Don't worry if you have poor English skills, the teachers here are very helpful. Thank You :)

What would you improve about this program?
Provide more fun activities that are intended to improve speaking and writing. E.g. Spelling Bee competition between classes.

Effective course

I have had great experience with Lincoln University English Language School. During my study, I had a great deal of support from tutors. Particularly, I can learn a lot of academic English skills. Additionally, if I have any problems, such as how to improve my academic writing, I can talk to my tutors easily. All of them are so kind and easy to understand problems that usually happen with foreign students. Moreover, surrounding areas of the LU are so nice, such as library, gym, etc. This means we can spend time on
