Lincoln University, originally Canterbury Agricultural College, is a small University of around 4500 students on the South Island of New Zealand.  It is also one of New Zealand's oldest, most internationalized, and well located universities.

Over the past ten years Lincoln University has continued to develop as a nationally and internationally renowned university specializing in commerce and management, primary production, natural resources, science, agriculture, engineering and social science.  Purdue students can take courses in any discipline at Lincoln and are guaranteed credits and grades for courses taken in Agriculture.

Studying at Lincoln means students have the best of both country and city living. Just 20 minutes from Lincoln University lies the city of Christchurch, which is the largest in the South Island.

Christchurch has:

  • A diverse range of cafes, restaurants, bars, pubs and nightclubs, most of which can be found on or near High Street or Oxford Terrace that runs along the Avon river. Christchurch is famous for its music culture and there are plenty of venues offering all kinds of live acts ranging from live bands through to international DJ's.
  • Excellent sporting facilities and clubs - from Jade Stadium, home of the Canterbury Crusaders and the Canterbury Wizards, to the netball courts at Hagley Park.
  • Movie theatres galore - pick the latest in foreign films at one of the city's many art-house theatres or a box office hit at one of the city's multiplexes. There's even one at Hornby, just 10 minutes from the campus.
  • Lots of boutique clothing designers for the fashion-conscious.
  • All kinds of recreational activities - a day at the beach, mountain biking, tennis, golf, paragliding, skiing/snowboarding, surfing, fishing, hunting, ten-pin bowling and plenty more.
  • Internationally acclaimed parks, reserves and outdoor recreation areas. It's no wonder that this is known as the Garden City of New Zealand. One third of Christchurch has been set-aside for this purpose. The Port Hills beckon you for a walk, run or cycle ride, with spectacular views of the city, shoreline and Canterbury plains.
