Questions & Answers

as far as I know they don't offer civil engineering. The major background of the Uni is agricultural. I hope I could help.

Fun little school

Loved being at a smaller school with such a tight knit community. It's small, but easy to get around and still pretty close to the city. Lincoln is great for agriculture/natural sciences majors to get a change of pace and scenery.

How can this program be improved?

More opportunities to live with kiwis and hang out with them--campus housing was great but I ended up spending a lot of time with other internationals

Yes, I recommend

Lincoln Uni

Lincoln University hosts a newly formed football team. The team is composed of a few Kiwis and several international players. If your're keen on playing some footy and studying hard, Lincoln Uni is the place to study.

How can this program be improved?

A few more Uni sponsored trips via bus would be great!
