Lincoln University Open Day 2021

Find out how our qualifications lead to amazing careers, and all about our close connections to New Zealand’s thriving food and fibre industries and the awesome opportunities they offer.

The Lincoln University Virtual Open Day is an online experience designed to showcase the opportunities we can offer you. As a specialised land-based university we have a strong connection with the thriving food and fibre industries and we will highlight how our programmes can grow into amazing career opportunities in that sector, and many other areas of employment.

You will be able to hear about the programmes you are interested in from the people that teach them; what you will learn, what you need to study beforehand, and where they can take you. Some of our students will also be on-hand to give a first-hand account of life on campus, and we can tell you all about the wrap-around services we offer to support you during your time with us ( your parents might be interested too).

And through it all you will be able to ask questions and have them answered live. It’s going to be an awesome event, which you can tailor to meet your interests by scheduling the sessions you want to see. You can apply to study with us too.

Watch this video to find out more about Lincoln.

You can also email [email protected] with any questions or to book a campus tour.
