Lincoln University Year Abroad

International students: our Study Abroad programme allows you to come to Lincoln for a semester or a year, and transfer the credit back to your degree at home.

How Can I Study Abroad

The Study Abroad programme is available to all international undergraduate and postgraduate students who meet Lincoln’s admission requirements.


Depending on your academic background, you can choose from any of the courses in our faculties.  Although we have three themes of courses around our Global Challenge programmes, you can also choose your own adventure by looking at all our courses.

The rules for meeting prerequisite requirements do not apply to Study Abroad students, so please check out the full list of options at Courses A-Z


You can study abroad with us for either one semester or a full academic year. Most courses are taught over one semester.

Our academic year is divided into two semesters. See key dates for more information.

Visas and insurance

As a Study Abroad student, you will need to obtain a student visa prior to departure from your home country. See Immigration New Zealand for more information.

You must also have medical and travel insurance for the duration of your study. For further details, see our insurance information.

How to apply

You can apply for our Study Abroad programme via direct enrolment through your current university, a certified provider, or on our website.
