About Lincoln University and Scholarship

When Lincoln College, Canterbury was granted independence from the University of Canterbury in 1990, Lincoln University (Mori: Te Whare Wnaka o Aoraki) was established as a New Zealand institution of higher learning. The oldest agricultural training facility in the Southern Hemisphere, it was established in 1878. It is still one of the eight public universities and the smallest (by enrollment) institution in New Zealand. In Lincoln, Canterbury, 15 km (9 km) outside of Christchurch, the campus is set on 50 hectares (120 acres) of land.

In 2018, Lincoln University had 633 full-time equivalent staff members and 2695 equivalent full-time students (188 academic, 135 administrative and support, 65 technical, and 273 farm and operational). The quality of Lincoln University’s research was placed sixth in the inaugural Performance Based Research Fund rating exercise conducted by the New Zealand Tertiary Education Commission in 2003, which is comparable to the Research Assessment Exercise conducted in the United Kingdom. Additionally, it saw the most percentage growth in financing for research.


According to the Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) World University Rankings, Lincoln is ranked 319 for the 2017–18 academic year. Lincoln has a QS Five Star rating as well. Agriculture and forestry (39th), as well as hospitality and leisure management (48th), are two professions where Lincoln is ranked among the top 50. The 2017 Times Higher Education (THE) international university rankings place Lincoln between 401 and 500th overall. 

Since the late 1960s, Lincoln University has maintained an entomology research collection, which is currently the third-largest entomology collection in New Zealand, with over 500,000 specimens and about 60 kinds.

The International Undergraduate Scholarship at Lincoln University was founded in 2020 to aid internationally qualified students who have not yet attended Lincoln University.
