Lincoln University

Lincoln University is New Zealand's second newest university, formed in 1990 when Lincoln College, Canterbury was made independent of the University of Canterbury. Its undergraduate study areas include agriculture, commerce, computing, engineering, environment, food, forestry, horticulture, hospitality, landscape, Maori planning, property, recreation, sciences, transport and winemaking.

Its primary campus is located about 15 km away outside the city of Christchurch in Lincoln, Canterbury.


Lincoln University began life in 1878 as a School of Agriculture. From 1896 to 1961 it served students under the name "Canterbury Agricultural College", and offered qualifications of the University of New Zealand until that institution's demise. From 1961 to 1990, it was known as Lincoln College, a part of the University of Canterbury, until achieving autonomy in 1990 as Lincoln University. It is considered the oldest agricultural teaching institution in the Southern Hemisphere. It remains the smallest university in New Zealand.

The NZ Tertiary Education Commission's first Performance Based Research Fund ranking exercise in 2003  equivalent to the UK's RAE ranked the quality of Lincoln University's research at sixth place. It also received highest percentage increase in research funding.
