Bachelor of Agricultural Science and Bachelor of Agriculture Lincoln University offers New Zealand’s only named Bachelor of Agriculture degrees - Agriculture and Agricultural Science. You will learn from some of New Zealand’s top researchers and lecturers in this field. With more than half of New Zealand’s export income coming from dairy products, meat and wool, job opportunities are plenty. Work as a farm manager or any of the numerous agricultural-related jobs, including farm consultancy; rural banking; sales and marketing; research; or positions in rural supply companies. You can also use your qualification off shore, where Lincoln University’s reputation and New Zealand’s expertise in the agricultural sector can open exciting doors.

Nicola Kelland Specialist Bachelor of Agricultural Science LANDED Agricultural Business Consultant, AgFirst Otago Opportunities within Lincoln University’s Bachelor of Agricultural Science programme to study a wide range of disciplines appealed to Nicola Kelland, from a Mackenzie Country merino station. Today, with a Bachelor of Agricultural Science degree, Nicola is an agricultural business consultant with AgFirst Otago. “At school at Craighead Diocesan, Timaru, I had a strong interest in science. I also loved the outdoors and working on the home farm, which initiated my interest in agriculture. I wanted to study agriculture at tertiary level so Lincoln University was the obvious choice.

Introduction This degree has evolved substantially over the years and now addresses the expectations of international markets, including the European Union, for food to be traceable from “paddock to plate.” You’ll gain a comprehensive knowledge of the wider environmental issues associated with food and fibre production as well as international trade and marketing issues. Quality assurance and social and political issues centred around international trade are also covered. Course structure The Bachelor of Agriculture is a three year degree programme. If you want to specialise further or undertake an honours programme, enrol in the Bachelor of Agricultural Science, which is a four year degree. Both degrees have a strong practical base and require 39 weeks of approved practical work, ensuring you gain a broad understanding of the principles and practice of production, processing and marketing. This component, which must be completed before the degree is awarded, is usually carried out during summer vacations throughout the time you study. There is also the opportunity to choose areas of specialisation.

“I wanted a degree that would set me up for a range of jobs in the agricultural industry. “Lincoln University offers a great student lifestyle, great lecturers, great campus and great practical work opportunities.”

BCom (Ag)

Bachelor of Commerce (Agriculture) This degree is for you if you’re looking for a focused qualification as a platform for a management level career in New Zealand’s largest industry, agriculture. Combining two of Lincoln University’s areas of excellence – commerce and agriculture – the BCom (Ag) programme brings together real-world examples with a detailed understanding of commerce, management and production. Graduates’ careers include farm and horticultural consultancy; farm management; property management; rural banking; rural valuation; agribusiness and positions in the fertiliser, seed and livestock industries. There is a particularly high demand for Lincoln University graduates’ skills in the banking sector.

Frazer Weir Specialist Bachelor of Commerce (Agriculture) Landed Partner at Polson Higgs. According to Frazer Weir, the network of friends and professional contacts he managed to build up was, “one of the most enjoyable things about my time at Lincoln.” Frazer completed a Bachelor of Commerce (Agriculture) in 1995, majoring in Valuation and Farm Management, and returned in 2001 for a Postgraduate Diploma in Commerce, majoring in Accounting. “I always wanted to work in the agricultural sector,” he says. “It was great to have lecturers who had been working in industry and could relate theory to the practical situations you were likely to encounter in the workforce.” Since graduating, Frazer worked for the BNZ as a Rural Manager for five years, and today is a partner at Polson Higgs specialising in property advice to rural and agribusiness clients.

Introduction Agriculture and related industries currently account for more than 50% of New Zealand’s total export income. Our primary producers consistently out perform competitors across the world. However, if we’re going to stay competitive, we need managers who have strong commercial acumen as well as a world-class understanding of agricultural and horticultural production systems. Where better to get that level of expertise than New Zealand’s specialist land-based university? Course structure The Bachelor of Commerce (Agriculture) is a three year 120 credit degree programme. You must pass 24 courses and complete 39 weeks of work experience in approved businesses associated with the agribusiness value chain. At least 26 weeks of that work experience requirement must be with production based enterprises; the rest may include science and technology, processing, marketing or supply chain management. Specialisation To reflect the changing needs of students and the marketplace, three specialisations are now being offered: • Agricultural Management • Horticultural Management • Rural Valuation. Additional majors and minors available In addition to the degree specialisation, you can complete a major or minor within your degree such as Marketing; Supply Chain Management; Environmental Management; Tourism or Plant Science.

BCom (VPM)

Bachelor of Commerce (Valuation and Property Management) If you want to become a property professional then Lincoln University’s Bachelor of Commerce (VPM) degree is a great choice. The qualification is highly respected by the industry in New Zealand and internationally recognised as one of the most comprehensive qualifications of its kind. The world of property investment, property development and asset management is dynamic and has generated a wide range of well paid career positions. These include jobs in valuation; property management; property development; project management; managing property investment portfolios; asset management; real estate; and sales and marketing.

Elliot Box Specialist Bachelor of Commerce (Valuation & Property Management) Landed Property Analyst, Knight Frank A year of living in Australia and firsthand exposure to the high pressure demands of the Sydney property market stirred Elliot Box’s interest in the forces and social pressures responsible for the city now having one of the world’s least affordable housing markets. “I was greatly interested in the situation in Sydney and the way it related to the Australian economy and population,” he says. He returned to his home city of Christchurch and enrolled at Lincoln University in the Bachelor of Commerce (Valuation and Property Management) degree; not just because of his interest in the subject, but also because of the job prospects and career pathways it afforded.

Introduction Property is an important investment asset class in New Zealand for home ownership, wealth creation and retirement planning. Property features in the portfolio of our most successful business people, with land used in a variety of ways: for real estate; to grow wine; or for commodities. For this “land” to maintain and enhance its value it needs to be professionally developed, managed and marketed. Course Structure The programme you follow is highly specified to meet the educational requirements of the main property industry bodies in New Zealand: The Valuers Registration Board (VRB) and the Property Institute of New Zealand (PINZ). This three year degree shares four core Commerce courses with other BCom degrees at Lincoln University. There are then a further 16 prescribed courses that take into account the needs of the property industry. The end result is a comprehensive, credible and well-rounded programme designed to provide you with as much career flexibility as possible. If you are aiming for professional accreditation, please seek advice from our careers team to ensure that your course of study meets the requirements of the professional bodies.

Also, he found the relaxed atmosphere and small scale of Lincoln University made it the “ideal choice” compared with the “larger, crowded Australian institutions.”

Page 18

www.lincoln.ac.nz


What you’ll study You’ll study Introduction to Real Estate; Principles of Valuation; Valuation of Investment Property; Principles of Property Management; Building Construction; and Property Analytical Methods. Working outside campus is an essential and stimulating part of the degree. In addition to the 12 weeks of practical work experience required before you graduate, off-campus case studies and field trips address real-life property scenarios. These assignments add to the degree’s value and practicality, and help draw the link between the theories learned in the classroom and practice.

Bachelor of Environmental Management and Planning Natural resource use raises complex issues of sustainability, environmental and community integrity, security, efficiency and equity. If you are interested in people, science, environmental planning and business, and aspire to a career managing environmental issues, then Lincoln University’s Bachelor of Environmental Management and Planning degree is for you. The global growth in environmental challenges has seen the demand for qualified personnel far exceed supply. Graduates gain employment in local or central government, environmental and planning consultancies, non-governmental organisations, private businesses and Crown enterprises.

Lisa Arnott Specialist Bachelor of Environmental Management Landed Planner, Christchurch City Council Lisa completed a Bachelor of Environmental Management degree and she is now a Planner with Christchurch City Council. She processes residential and commercial resource consents and gives general planning advice to the public. “I liked the way the programme covered a broad range of topics, including social science, ecology, law and environmental studies. The degree is also recognised by the New Zealand Planning Institute for accreditation purposes if students complete additional courses after their bachelor’s qualification. “The field trips and the applied nature of the courses were really good for illustrating how theories and processes discussed in class work in the real world “Staff were very knowledgeable and passionate about their work and that made classes really interesting and enjoyable to take part in.”

Introduction Environmental impacts and sustainability are gaining prominence with industries, companies, communities and individuals who are increasingly seeking more understanding of the implications of their actions and developing strategies to respond to these concerns. Demand continues to increase for qualified people who can advise on the best approaches to take. One of the great strengths of Lincoln University’s BEMP is that it focuses on inter-relationships between the ecological, social and economic aspects of the environment. If you’re someone who likes to be right in the midst of the action, this degree provides the depth of understanding needed to converse easily with the scientific community, business world and management agencies. It will train you to scope and analyse situations, listen to many points of view, formulate options and facilitate community choices – the very skills needed by environmental managers of the future. The Lincoln University Planning Association (LUPA) provides a forum for students interested in planning to participate in extra-curricula planning-related activities. Course structure Within the three year BEMP degree there is scope to develop your own specialisation. The degree itself is made up of 24 courses, including 14 compulsory courses.

BSc

Bachelor of Science If you are interested in a science career, but don’t want to spend most of your time in a laboratory, then Lincoln University’s Bachelor of Science degree is the qualification for you. The University’s applied programmes are unique - firmly anchored in the scientific needs and issues that underpin production of our country’s food and fibre, while protecting our resources.

Bachelor of Landscape Architecture If you are interested in design and the impact of rural and urban landscaped environments on communities, then consider Lincoln University’s Bachelor of Landscape Architecture degree. The University’s School of Landscape Architecture is regarded nationally and internationally as the leading location to study for a professional landscape architecture degree in New Zealand. Graduates, trained to take a holistic approach to design, are employed as landscape architects, urban planners and designers with local and regional Councils and as professionals in consultancies where they work on commercial, industrial and institutional projects, new towns, urban centres and rural community developments.

Anna-Marie Miller Specialist Bachelor of Landscape Architecture Landed Landscape Planner, Boffa Miskell Although already holding a science degree, the combination of creativity and practicality in Lincoln University’s landscape architecture programme appealed to Anna-Marie Miller, and, as it happened, she was fortunate enough to receive a career change scholarship from the University. “The degree was well-structured and varied; obviously there was a huge focus on design, but we also learned about plants and ecology, landscape planning and assessment, landscape construction and design theory.” Also, she thought the studio provided a fantastic learning environment and the method of teaching was great for getting useful feedback. “The landscape course is demanding,” she says. “But it does mean you get to know people on the programme really well; some of the students from the course are now some of my closest friends.”

Page 24

Introduction The acclaimed School of Landscape Architecture is widely recognised as providing the leading professional Landscape Architecture programmes in New Zealand. In fact, Lincoln University is the only university offering accredited landscape degrees in the South Island. The School is based in a brand new building, offering individual work places in a stunning studio setting in the heart of the Lincoln University campus. If you are keen on international experience, the Lincoln University degrees are internationally recognised, with graduates working throughout the world. Lincoln University also has exchange programmes in place with top universities in North America and Europe, giving you the opportunity to study internationally as part of your degree. The programmes Lincoln University’s BLA programme is a wonderful opportunity if you’re interested in design, and in working with communities to create exciting and sustainable urban and rural environments. You’ll learn to take a holistic approach to landscape design and planning, and develop the skills, knowledge and understanding needed for successful and responsible professional practice in landscape architecture. The practical work and community-based projects provide real experience that benefits your transition to the workforce. Combine this experience with skills to deliver creative and conceptually robust landscape design and planning solutions, and it’s no wonder that this degree is valued by employers in New Zealand and beyond.

She won a two-year scholarship which covered working her first year after graduation in Marlborough for Matador Estates, then over the next year she spent a season in South Australia and a vintage in California. Today Janey works for Villa Maria Estate as a Technical Officer in the Gisborne district. Page 34

Bill Wiessing Specialist Diploma in Horticulture, Diploma in Horticultural Management Landed Manages Avocado orchard “Information exchange” was the best part of Bill Wiessing’s study experience at Lincoln University. “Questions that had been bugging me for years I got answers to,” he says. “And the ability to dig deeper when I needed to was encouraged.” Originally from Kaitaia, Bill enrolled at Lincoln University because, after finishing his trade certificate/ apprenticeship, he felt his job had “stagnated” “Lincoln University prepared me for the financial side, the management principles, the people skills, and it helped me mature. “ “They gave exposure to the inside of industries rarely seen and provided opportunities to make contacts to call on at a later stage.”

Introduction A Diploma in Horticulture will give you the start you’re looking for in this increasingly important part of New Zealand’s land-based economy. If you’re wanting to move into management in the horticultural or agribusiness industries, then we invite you to complete the Diploma in Horticultural Management.

Bridging Programmes If it’s been a while since you last studied because you’ve taken a gap after leaving school, you’ve been in the workforce for a time, or you don’t have University Entrance with your NCEA results, we can fast-track you into university study. Lincoln University offers several bridging programmes to ensure you have an effective pathway to achieve the qualifications you’re looking for. These programmes attract an increasing number of mature students who may be looking to change career paths, but want to make sure they’re ready before they embark in full-time study.

Clarice Wang Foundation Studies With an interest in the science of nutrition, Clarice came to Lincoln University to study for the Bachelor of Science degree majoring in Food Science. To do this, however, she first needed to complete a Certificate in Foundation Studies. Known for her hard work, she completed this certificate in 2010 and has now since enrolled in the science degree. Clarice comes from Hainan; China’s smallest and southernmost province. Its low population compared with other parts of China meant she felt comfortable here and she loves the “quiet lifestyle.” “For me that makes it a good place for learning. I enjoy the campus, it is like a park, it is so nice,” she says. Clarice has found the teaching staff to be “very friendly and nice” and she especially liked field trips; particularly as an opportunity to “bring cameras and take photos.”

Certificate in Foundation Studies Lincoln University’s Certificate in Foundation Studies (CFS) programme is a high-quality New Zealand programme with a proven success rate. The programme is a University Entrance qualification designed and developed by Lincoln University to act as a “bridging” programme between school and university, and to prepare domestic and international students for university studies. The course is a pathway for school leavers and mature students. It is designed to ensure you succeed in your university degree and encourages you to develop personal study and communication skills, as well as academic capabilities. The programme is delivered in two parts with four courses in each part. Students must pass both parts of the programme. The programme is the equivalent of two (12 week) semesters of full-time study. Language teaching supports all aspects of the programme and students will be taught in small and supportive classes, commencing in February, July and November. Courses Compulsory courses: Computing; Learning and Study Issues; English Language and Communication; Mathematics; Statistics; and Integrative Study Skills (English Language and Learning and Study Issues). Plus two from: Accounting, Economics, Environmental Studies and Science. Entry requirements You will need to have a level of education equivalent to New Zealand Year 12.

You can enrol for one or two semesters on an independent basis, or as part of a Study Abroad programme. A Study Abroad programme can be organised by your home university, through other universities or through Study Abroad placement organisations.

Jesper Lehmann Study Abroad student For Jesper Lehmann, meeting two Lincoln University students in his home country of Denmark sowed the seed of curiosity about the place, and when he found himself in New Zealand as part of a family holiday he decided to visit the campus. It was a trip worth making. “I found out that Lincoln University’s profile fits very well with my interest in animal production, and it would be an excellent way of differentiating my degree.” With a particular interest in organic dairy production, Jesper decided to take advantage of the student exchange programme and enrol in a Masters in Animal Science. He wanted to learn about the New Zealand way of pasture management and dairy production, and to “become inspired.” His goal is to explore new ways for improving farming systems; to come up with innovative new ideas in the way we produce food.

Introduction The Study Abroad programme is available to both undergraduate and postgraduate students, providing you satisfy Lincoln University’s admission requirements. Depending on your academic background, you can choose from any of the courses within the Faculties. Most courses are taught over one semester.

Accommodation and Activities Every year around 600 students enjoy the experience of living on campus in the Halls of Residence alongside students from New Zealand and overseas. Most say they make friends for life as a result.

Living in the Halls Some of the best things about living in the Halls, especially the catered ones, include: • Being fed, housed and entertained just a minute or two away from your lecture theatres • Making new friends who are sharing the same experiences of beginning their studies at Lincoln University • Not having to cook your own dinner, pay the power bill or share a room with anyone • Having RA’s (Residential Assistants) to talk to if you have any problems or need help • Having fully furnished and carpeted rooms and fresh new linen for you, in your room pack. The eight halls of residence are located near each other on the Lincoln University campus, and residents in the catered halls dine together each day. You can get involved in the many social events and recreational facilities in your Hall – ranging from live concerts to parties, video evenings and sports competitions. There is always something going on. Generally, first year students choose the catered halls. Later, they tend to move to our semi-catered halls or self-catered units.

Semi-Catered A semi-catered option was introduced in 2010 and has proven popular with some of our international students. You take care of your own breakfast and lunch, then have dinner in the Dining Hall each evening. The semi-catered option is a great way to save some money and still stay in touch with other students. Applying for the Halls of Residence This can be done on-line and must be completed by 1st October the year prior to your studies. For more information see www.lincoln.ac.nz/accommodation If you are an international student, your application deadline is 10 December of the year prior to study. Please apply early if you can, as places are limited and preference will be given to those who apply first. Late applications will be considered, but only if there are rooms still available. If you are an international student you may be interested in homestay accommodation. Applications are available from www.studentcare.co.nz

Food glorious food If you are living in a catered Hall of Residence you get buffetstyle meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner. There is plenty of choice at every meal, and the Sunday brunches are legendary! Specific dietary needs can be catered for if required. Of course, if you feel like something more café style, you can always drop into Mrs O’s cafe for a latte or a panini, or something more substantial.

Budgeting

No matter whether you love to snowboard, salsa dance, listen to the symphony, cheer for the Crusaders or the local Lincoln University rugby team, or hang out at the end of term garden parties, Lincoln University, the city of Christchurch and the wider Canterbury region can offer it all!

OTHER COSTS

There is no shortage of entertainment on campus or off, with the Lincoln University Students’ Association (LUSA) constantly organising events and co-ordinating clubs and sporting groups.

Glossary ad eundem statum

GST (Goods and Services Tax)

Qualified applicants will be granted admission ad eundem statum; that is, admission is recognised as being equivalent to the New Zealand university standard admission.

This is a tax on most goods and services in New Zealand, most imported goods, and certain imported services. The current rate is 15% (as of 1 October 2010).

Calendar

Core

Lecture

Course The components of a qualification are called courses.

A PhD is an advanced academic degree that has become the most common term in the English speaking world for a research doctorate.

Credits Credits measure the ‘size’ of a course.

Postgraduate

Diploma

A university student studying for a degree, diploma or certificate that requires a previous degree for admission.

A diploma is a sub-degree qualification. An undergraduate diploma requires one or two years of full-time study. A postgraduate/graduate diploma normally requires a degree for admission and requires one year’s full-time study.

Practical Work Some course regulations require a specified period of related practical work to be completed before the student can graduate or be awarded their certificate or diploma.

Elective A course students choose themselves.

Registration

Faculty

Registration is the process of completion and confirmation of enrolment. This is done online using LUCAS, the campus administration system.

A Faculty is a group of staff members who conduct or assist in teaching and research in a particular field. Field Trip/Field Tour These may be visits to a business, farm, a factory or some other place where students see applications of the work they are studying. A trip is one day or less, while a tour lasts several days.

Semester The academic year is divided into two halves called semesters. Transcript A transcript of a student’s academic record is a copy of the record of the student’s enrolment and grades.

Full-time Each course has a defined number of units that make up a full-time course of study. International students are required to study full-time to satisfy Immigration New Zealand requirements. Domestic students may need to study full-time.

Undergraduate A university student studying for a Bachelor’s degree, or a certificate or diploma course that did not require a previous degree for admission.
