Lincoln University Masters

One of our most popular postgraduate options is the Taught Master’s qualification, which you can complete in 12-18 months. Each programme consists only of coursework, with no thesis requirement. 

A Taught Master’s degree allows you to specialise in your chosen field and can open up a wide range of high-level career options. 

Choose from the following Taught Master’s programmes:

Fee waivers

Until the end of 2021, we are offering fee waivers to domestic students of all our Taught Master’s programmes (except the Master of Disaster Risk and Resilience, which is taught jointly with the University of Canterbury). 

For more information about this, see our Free Study Options webpage.
