I spend one Semester during my Master programme at the Lincoln University in Christchurch, New Zealand. We were housed in student homes on Campus, four of us in one house. The houses were simple but cozy and sufficiently equipped. During the cold months we needed quite a bit of heating since the houses weren't perfectly insulated and a little old, but overall it was great to share the house and the area with so many other students. The Lincoln University has a lot to offer for exchange students, the houses we were staying in (our "halls") had the chance to participate in a lot different Group activities and we bonded as a great family over the semester.

Additionally there is sports on Campus where everyone can join for a small amount of money and visit different courses or use the gym.

The classes were all on an appropriate level of teaching. The lecturers even cared especially for their students. This is for once due to the small size of the classes and also due to their personal dedication. I have never again felt so taken care of in a Uni.

The overall support was mostly perfectly taken care of, it was only a bit confusing at the beginning because I arrived a day after the official beginning and therefore missed a lot of introduction.

I do recommens this Uni to everyone who plans to to study abroud and this country to everyone who wants to travel. The people are down-to-earth and willingly show you their culture and in half a year I have never experienced any hostility.

How can this program be improved?
There is not much to improve, our University in Germany could have supported us more.

Last year I studied abroad in New Zealand. When I now tell you about my experiences, I want to look away from all school stuff and rather focus on emotions because I’m just that kind of a person, sorry.

I read about an employer once who said that he would rather see people’s travel photos than their grades, and that is one of the loveliest things I have read. The grades we get on the exams are most of all a result of last-minute intense studying of things we will forget a year later anyway. But the things you learn from travelling and exploring the world are things you never forget.

I was terrified when I left. All of the new, weird and stressful things that happened was enough to freak me out, especially when I woke up after the first night in New Zealand and realised that my lung had collapsed. Oh well. Shit happens, but I survived, and I have become a braver person than I was before.

During the months I spent abroad I have created some of my best memories. I have gone kayaking, swum in glacier water and in hot springs, lived on a sheep farm and spent days and nights in the beautiful nature – waterfalls, turquoise water, mountains and long beaches. Last, but not least, I have met amazing people that have changed my life forever.

So what have I learned? Yes, I have learned something about phylogeny and legumes and invasion of pampas grass, but most importantly I have learned how to be a better human being. I don’t think I can ever be the same again, and I don’t want to either.

That’s why I recommend everyone to study abroad. Not for the academic’s sake, but for your own personal development.

I am studying "International Nature Conservation", a joint Masters program between the Lincoln University and the Georg-August-University in Göttingen (Germany). Even if the workload of our NZ semester was high, I learned a lot and gained a lot of knowledge that is still useful for my study program. The courses were very diverse and we got great help from the lecturers but also the Lincoln staff not involved in the courses. In addition, events for international students were organized which was definitely a great chance to get to know others. All in all, Lincoln was an amazing experience, both inside university but also during the free time.

How can this program be improved?
I guess the program can only be improved by the German side.

I came to New Zealand in February and started a semester study. Before coming here, I never thought I would study abroad. All this is like a dream, magical and fortunate.
My studies and life at Lincoln University are very good. I really like the friends and teachers here. They always help me when I am in trouble. I also like the air here. The sky is blue like a lake. In addition, the delicious food is essential. I like the fruit, chocolate, dessert and so on.
Although it was time to return to China, this five-month experience made me forget all my life. I will always remember New Zealand.

Studying abroad at Lincoln University was a demanding but rewarding experience. The level of teaching and the level expected from the students was greater than I initially expected, but all went well in the end. If there would be something to improve, it would be the housing; I had to ask for a heater myself for example, something that should be available from the get-go. During my four and a half months here, I made so many new friends and enjoyed New Zealand to the fullest. There is so much to see here even though it is a smallish country! I would definitely recommend Lincoln University to anyone, regardless of their major. Loved it!

How can this program be improved?
The housing and support with it could be better!
