Lincoln University Prospectus 2010

CHRISTCHURCH N EW ZEALAND


Where you want to be. Look around you. In an economy like ours, land links much of what we do and trade. Meat, wool, wine and dairy products start on the land, so it’s a vital part of our agriculture and of how we do business. Land’s a key component in how we manage our environment. Land decides how we design spaces. People compete on parks and sports grounds. Tourists come to see our mountains, rivers and cities. We build on land. Many of us trace our heritage, directly or indirectly, through the land.

Now think wider. Beyond our shores, many of the questions that the world is grappling with right now have a big land factor: food; property investment; climate change; infrastructure; environmental issues; water shortages; peak oil. Land will define how we live with each other and how we co-exist with nature. Land is diverse, exciting, challenging and rewarding. When it informs what you learn and how you think, the way it does at Lincoln, a land based education has the potential to take you places – in every sense.

UNDERGRADUATE QUALIFICATIONS

BAgrSc

Bachelor of Agricultural Science and Bachelor of Agriculture If you’ve done well in chemistry, biology and mathematics at secondary school level, study New Zealand’s only named Agriculture degrees and earn a qualification that will stand you in good stead at home and internationally. More than 50% of New Zealand’s total export income comes from dairy products, meat and wool. Lincoln has always played a key role in training managers, researchers, consultants and employees in these vital sectors.

ROSS BOWMAR GRADUATE BACHELOR OF AGRICULTURAL SCIENCE Graduate Ross Bowmar says when he started at Lincoln he knew it would open up an array of opportunities for the future. “I didn’t want to be pigeon-holed in my course selection,” Ross says. There is so much more to a BAgrSc than just straight farming, and as I was exposed to more and more of the degree’s content, opportunities quickly unfolded.”

Introduction This degree has evolved substantially over the years and now addresses the demands for farmers and primary producers to meet the requirements of international markets, including EU expectations 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. You’ll also cover quality assurance and understanding of social and political issues around international trade. Course structure The Bachelor of Agriculture is a three year degree programme. If you want to specialise further or undertake an honours programme, you can enrol in the Bachelor of Agricultural Science, which is a four year degree.

He was invited to study at Michigan State University in 2008, completed his B.Agr.Sc with First-Class Honours, and says Lincoln offers plenty of pathways for broadening study horizons.

Both degrees have a strong practical base, ensuring you gain a broad understanding of the principles and practice of production, processing and marketing as well as the opportunity to choose areas of specialisation. Both degrees require 39 weeks of approved practical work. This component, which must be completed before the degree is awarded, is usually carried out during summer vacations throughout the time you study for the degree.

“Lincoln is well regarded for its interdisciplinary approach to agriculture and, because of this, I have the opportunity to advance my studies abroad.”

It is possible to complete an additional minor within your degree. See www.lincoln.ac.nz/majorsandminors for a full list of majors and minors available in 2010. Some examples of minors include: environmental biogeosciences; human resource management; Ma-ori studies; urban ecology and sustainable business.

BCom

Bachelor of Commerce You can study commerce at a whole range of places, but you’ll be hard-pressed to find a Commerce degree that helps you land the career you want with as much real-life experience under your belt as you’ll get from Lincoln. That’s because our degree is a whole lot more applied and therefore relevant than many of the alternatives. A great student to teacher ratio helps. Most students do a double major – not surprising perhaps, given there are 10 options.

ALEXA BENNETT GRADUATE BACHELOR OF COMMERCE (FORMALLY KNOWN AS BACHELOR OF COMMERCE AND MANAGEMENT) SALES CADET (FAIRFAX GRADUATE PROGRAMME) THE AGE, MELBOURNE Alexa Bennett says a cricket scholarship from Lincoln University helped boost both her degree and her sport. Alexa, who played cricket at representative level, says while Lincoln’s training facilities helped develop her talent on the cricket field, balancing her sport and degree benefited her in the classroom. “My degree at Lincoln really allowed me to grasp the business fundamentals and provided a practical aspect to test and apply my theory,” she says. “In one of my classes, we worked with a real-world client to prepare a hypothetical marketing plan – that was a great way to gain a feel for the industry.” She describes her time studying at Lincoln University as “110 percent positive”.

BCom (Ag)

Bachelor of Commerce (Agriculture) If you’re looking to work at management level in the primary production sector, this degree must be one of the most powerful undergraduate qualifications available. Combining two of Lincoln’s areas of excellence – Commerce and Agriculture – Lincoln’s BCom (Ag) brings together real-world examples (taught through field and case studies), a detailed understanding of commerce, management and production, and the opportunity to focus on specialist areas.

GARTH NIELSON-VOLD GRADUATE BACHELOR OF COMMERCE (AGRICULTURE) RUMINENT NUTRITIONIST, VET LIFE Missing out on University Entrance is not always the end of the road, according to Lincoln graduate Garth Nielson-Vold. He worked for two years after finishing high school, where he said despite working hard, his marks were not high enough for him to move on to university straight away. But by the third year of his Bachelor of Commerce (Agriculture) degree, Garth was gaining top marks. “Finding the subject area you really thrive in makes all the difference, and being able to add in the practical side of the qualification helps too,” Garth says. “Although I didn't specialise in nutrition, my farm management skills are always relevant working alongside farmers to advise them on best practice with their animals.”

PAGE 16

Introduction Agriculture and related industries currently account for more than 50% of New Zealand’s total export income. Our primary producers consistently outperform competitors across the world. But if we’re going to stay competitive, we need managers who have strong commercial acumen as well as a world-class understanding of the agricultural and horticultural production sectors. 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 degree programme. Students must pass at least 24 course units and complete 39 weeks of practical work in approved businesses associated with the agribusiness value chain. At least 26 weeks of that requirement must be with productionbased enterprises, while the rest may focus on input supplies, processing, marketing or supply chain management. Specialisation Based on an extensive review of the base degree to reflect the changing needs of students and the marketplace, three specialisations are offered in this degree: • Agricultural Management • Horticultural Management • Rural Valuation It is possible to complete an additional major or minor within your degree. See www.lincoln.ac.nz/majorsandminors for a full list of majors and minors available in 2010. Some examples of minors include: environmental biogeosciences; human resource management; Ma-ori studies; urban ecology and sustainable business.

www.lincoln.ac.nz


Where will you land with a Bachelor of Commerce (Agriculture) from Lincoln? The career opportunities within New Zealand’s largest industry, agriculture, are many and varied.

BCom (Food Industry)

Bachelor of Commerce (Food Industry) Producing high quality food for the local and international marketplace is mission-critical for the New Zealand economy. As more and more international markets look for ‘paddock to plate’ accountability, the need for highly-trained food science and food industry graduates who have the skills to view food products from nutritional, food safety and product development perspectives grows ever more important. If food’s your thing, Lincoln is your university and this BCom (Food Industry) degree is a must.

GABRIELLE VAN DER LAAN UNDERGRADUATE BACHELOR OF COMMERCE (FOOD INDUSTRY) An interest in the global marketing of New Zealand food and wines drew Gabrielle van der Laan to study a BCom (Food Industry) at Lincoln. Originally from Te Awamutu in the Waikato, Gabrielle started her tertiary studies at Otago but shifted to Lincoln because of the subject options available at Lincoln. “The BCom Food Industry suited me because of the broad range of course options and the practical work. I am really interested in doing food marketing or marketing NZ wines internationally when I graduate, so I have taken marketing papers in my degree as well as the core papers.” Gabrielle enjoys life on campus too. “The great thing is that you get to know a lot more people from across all year levels, and there is always someone to go wine tasting or snow boarding with!”

BCom (VPM)

Bachelor of Commerce (Valuation and Property Management) The world of property sales, development, and asset management is dynamic, fascinating and central to our daily lives – whether we own property or live or work in properties owned and managed by others. If this is what you want to be doing, then Lincoln’s Bachelor of Commerce (Valuation and Property Management) degree is highly respected by the industry in New Zealand and internationally as one of the most comprehensive qualifications of its kind.

BEN ROSEWALL GRADUATE BACHELOR OF COMMERCE (VALUATION & PROPERTY MANAGEMENT) COMMERCIAL PROPERTY VALUER CB RICHARD ELLIS Ben Rosewall says it was his decision to study at Lincoln University that opened the door to the career in property he really wanted to pursue. “I wanted to build on the knowledge I already had of the construction industry and to advance my studies. Lincoln stood out because they are the only university to offer a BCom (Valuation and Property Management) in the South Island.” “The degree is focused and very tangible. I felt the entire course offered a streamlined and marketgrounded approach, and that nothing was irrelevant in its content. As a result, my degree has been directly applicable to my job.”

Introduction Lincoln’s BCom (VPM) focuses on urban valuation. You’ll study valuation, property and facilities management, investment, development, real estate, law and construction, as well as finance, economics, mathematics and computing. The many case studies keep this course real and add to its value and practicality. If you’re looking to get ahead in the fast moving property sector, this degree really will help you build a career in development, investment, finance, planning, sales, marketing or valuation. Course structure This three year degree shares five core commerce courses with other commerce degrees at Lincoln. Added to this are a minimum of eight specific property courses and the remaining 11 courses can be a combination of further specialist property courses or other electives chosen from the undergraduate degree programmes. The degree is structured to allow graduates to meet the educational requirements of the New Zealand Property Institute, the Valuers Registration Board, and the Real Estate Industry. In order to obtain accreditation by these bodies, specific subjects should be taken and it is wise to seek course advice. Please speak to the Academic Co-ordinator for this degree. It is possible to complete an additional major or minor within your degree. See www.lincoln.ac.nz/majorsandminors for a full list of majors and minors available in 2010. Some examples of minors include: environmental biogeosciences; human resource management; Ma-ori studies; urban ecology and sustainable business. The degree also requires 12 weeks of practical work in the industry to be completed before beginning your second year of study.

Where will you land with a Bachelor of Commerce (Valuation and Property Management) from Lincoln? Not all students studying this degree are looking for a career as property valuers. Careers for graduates are generally very well paid and range from valuation to property management, property development, project management, managing property investment portfolios, asset management, real estate and sales and marketing.

What you’ll study Working outside campus is an essential and stimulating part of the degree. This is based around teaching theory in the classroom and then employing off-campus exercises and field trips to explore actual situations and gather data before returning to the lecture room to explore that knowledge. Students present their conclusions, staff present theirs, and outcomes are actively debated. Interaction at this level between staff and students is encouraged, because this is an arena where the answers are not clear-cut and employing judgement is crucial to success. Course options in this degree include; building construction, introduction to real estate, principles of urban property management, principles of valuation, property analytical methods, valuation of investment property, property investment and portfolio analysis, urban valuation, property and facilities management, and property development.

BEMP

Bachelor of Environmental Management and Planning The way humans use natural resources raises complex issues of sustainability, environmental and community integrity, security, efficiency and equity. If you have an interest in people, science, environmental planning and business, and you want to become a leader in identifying and managing environmental problems, this may well be the degree for you.

GEOFF ENGLAND GRADUATE BACHELOR OF ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT (NATURAL RESOURCES) RESOURCE PLANNER, MWH Geoff England, who was a Hockey Scholar, says he regularly draws on the skills learned during his Bachelor of Environmental Management degree. “Report writing is a big part of my job now, and that was a skill I learned at Lincoln, along with time management that was essential for me doing a sports scholarship during my degree. Having to get up early for 7.00am trainings and fit in all my courses, along with training and a social life, meant I needed to really organise my time – something I have appreciated more looking back.” He also credits Lincoln with helping him to develop an effective network of friends in the resource management sector.

Introduction As more companies choose to operate sustainably and minimise their carbon footprint, demand continues to increase for qualified people who can advise on the best approaches to take. One of the great strengths of Lincoln’s BEMP is that it focuses on the interrelationships 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 both the scientific community and the business world. 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. Professional Planning The New Zealand Planning Institute (NZPI) upholds the interests and oversees the standards of the planning profession. BEMP graduates with a minor in Professional Planning who undertake a specified year of postgraduate study qualify for graduate membership of NZPI. 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 for students to develop their own specialisation. The degree is made up of 24 courses, including 11 compulsory courses that all BEM students must take. The elective courses can be chosen from the range of undergraduate courses available at Lincoln. It is possible to complete an additional major or minor within your degree. See www.lincoln.ac.nz/majorsandminors for a full list of majors and minors available in 2010. Some examples of minors include: Environmental biogeosciences; human resource management; Ma-ori studies; urban ecology and sustainable business.

Bachelor of Landscape Architecture If you took design, art or graphics at art school and have an interest in geography and biology, Lincoln’s acclaimed School of Landscape Architecture is widely regarded as the leading place to gain a professional Landscape Architecture degree in New Zealand. In fact, Lincoln is the only university offering this qualification in the South Island. If your ambitions are global, this degree is accredited in New Zealand and Singapore, and recognised in Australia and Hong Kong. Lincoln 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.

SARAH HAMILTON GRADUATE BACHELOR OF LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE LANDSCAPE ARCHITECT/PLANNER, BOFFA MISKELL LTD Finishing high school in Nelson with an interest in art, geography and graphic design could have taken landscape architect/planner Sarah Hamilton in several different directions. After considering Fine Arts or Design Studies, she met a Bachelor of Landscape Architecture graduate and decided that this degree was the best fit for her interests. “What really caught my imagination was seeing some of the work she had done during her major design project. And she pointed out that I would come out with a job specific qualification whereas the other arts-related courses didn't have an obvious career path.” She now works for one of New Zealand's largest landscape design and planning companies, Boffa Miskell Ltd. “I made some great industry contacts while I was studying and many of the people I work with now are Lincoln graduates – it’s a nice common thread running through the sector.”

PAGE 24

Introduction Lincoln’s BLA is a wonderful opportunity if you’re interested in design and the impact of rural and urban landscaped environments on communities. You’ll learn to take an holistic approach to landscape design, and develop the skills, knowledge and understanding needed for successful and responsible professional practice. The practical work and community-based projects provide real experience that is utterly invaluable in the transition to the workforce. Combine this with the skills to deliver creative and conceptually robust approaches, and it’s no wonder this is a degree that employers, in New Zealand and beyond, value and respect. Course structure Lincoln offers two degree options – the BLA undergraduate, which is a four year degree, and the BLA graduate entry, which is a two year degree for graduates of other disciplines. Both degrees are fully accredited with the New Zealand Institute of Landscape Architects. Because the BLA is a professional programme, it is largely prescribed. Courses are organised into six areas: natural and social sciences; landscape and design theory; design practice and research; design studios; related discipline electives and open electives. The first year of the BLA undergraduate degree is a foundation year that covers a wide range of disciplines. It gives students the opportunity to test their aptitude for design and gain a broader understanding of landscape. Elective subjects give some choice in the first, third and fourth years. There are also opportunities to develop an area of special interest in a minor, which could include spatial planning, urbanism + design, design critique, or Ma-ori planning and development. There is a 12 week practical work requirement made up of six weeks in a landscape architecture practice, and six weeks involved in an aspect of landscape implementation.

www.lincoln.ac.nz


Where will you land with a Bachelor of Landscape Architecture from Lincoln? BLA graduates benefit from the outstanding reputation of the school, as well as internationally recognised industry accreditation. Most are employed as urban planners and designers, with local and regional councils, and as landscape architects for small and large consultancies working on commercial, industrial and institutional projects. Graduates of this degree can be found working at every level of practice throughout New Zealand, Australia, SE Asia, China, Europe, North America and the Middle East.

The BLA graduate entry requires 20 courses taken over two years and is almost fully prescribed. Entry to this degree requires evidence of some aptitude for design which is usually provided in the form of a portfolio of work. Applicants who need a bridging programme in basic design and graphics can take Lincoln’s summer school class, Introduction to Landscape Design, immediately before starting the first semester. It is possible to complete an additional minor within your degree. See www.lincoln.ac.nz/majorsandminors for a full list of majors and minors available in 2010. Some examples of minors include: Environmental biogeosciences; human resource management; Ma-ori studies; urban ecology and sustainable business.

BSc

Bachelor of Science If your ideas about a career in science are more closely aligned to working in the field and seeing results that count in the real world, study science at Lincoln. Our programmes are unique because they’re firmly anchored in the scientific needs and issues that underpin production of our country’s food and fibre. We focus our scientific knowledge and research on helping you contribute to sustainable management and conservation of land, water and air and the country’s abundant natural resources.

PETER SAVAGE GRADUATE BACHELOR OF SCIENCE (MAJOR NATURAL RESOURCES) TEAM LEADER CONSENTS INVESTIGATIONS ENVIRONMENT CANTERBURY (ECan) Taking time out for some life balance saw a shift for former glacier guide Peter Savage from a general geography degree at Otago, to a more focused environmental sciencerelated degree at Lincoln University. “Lincoln offered courses that were more relevant to me, and I regularly draw on that knowledge in my current job, particularly the 300 level paper in Resource Management Law – given that I work with the Resource Management Act on a daily basis.” In his job at ECan, Peter can be dealing with anyone from a QC through to a shift manager at a factory that has a smoke stack issue, so he says it is important to be able to communicate well at all levels – something that having a practical degree, plus life experience, has made possible for him.

BSocSc

Bachelor of Social Science If you have a passion for helping communities or special interest groups within communities achieve their goals and make a difference, this could well be the degree for you. Through a multi-disciplinary approach that encompasses a range of areas including history, philosophy, geography, sociology, economics, political science and psychology, you’ll learn to address issues as ideas and policy rather than focusing on the technical aspects. Understanding the big picture when it comes to social change, and making a difference is what this degree is all about.

FELICITY BOYD UNDERGRADUATE BACHELOR OF SOCIAL SCIENCE “A Bachelor of Social Science includes so many interesting papers, and I will leave Lincoln with the ability to work in a variety of different fields, here or abroad. It will give me options for my career path in the future, and from what I’ve seen of previous graduates, they have all gone on to work in vastly different areas.” “When I looked into studying at Lincoln, it really appealed to me. I didn’t want to attend a huge university and risk getting lost in the crowds. I had heard Lincoln’s lectures were smaller and the staff very approachable, and I knew I would thrive in that kind of close-knit environment.”

PAGE 30

BRITTANY HENRY STUDY ABROAD Brittany is studying Leisure Theory, Outdoor Leadership, Social Psychology, History and Geography of New Zealand and has chosen Education as her major. “The courses I am studying here are not offered at my home university.” She enjoys the down to earth atmosphere and the small classes. “There is quite a bit of reading to do, more than what I am used to, but as we go along I am learning how to navigate through material. Staff are really helpful and friendly.” She also enjoys student life on campus. “I stay in Centennial Hall and have friends stopping by for afternoon tea which is great. Also, there are always activities organised – you are sure to meet others.”

PAGE 46

Study Abroad students are required to study full-time to satisfy Immigration New Zealand requirements. This means that students will need to study 60 Lincoln University credits per semester. For undergraduate students this means choosing four courses per semester, each worth 15 credits. For postgraduate students this means choosing three courses per semester, each worth 20 credits. On completion of studies at Lincoln University, students will receive an official transcript of their academic record at Lincoln University. Entry requirements Study Abroad students need to have a minimum Grade Point Average (GPA) score of 2.75. Students with a lower GPA can apply and be assessed on a case-by-case basis.

It is also open to Lincoln students who wish to complete part of their degree overseas. Lincoln University has agreements in place with a number of overseas institutions in Canada, Denmark, the United States, United Kingdom, Norway and Sweden.

Overseas students ADAM HUTCHINSON GRADUATE DIPLOMA IN COMMERCE During his degree at Lincoln University Adam decided to participate in the Exchange programme and attended Copenhagen University in Denmark. “International experience is important for commerce. You’ll often be working in an international/multi cultural working environment, so studying abroad both looks good on your CV and gives you good experience. I already spent some time in Scandinavia before studying so also wanted to keep learning the language.” “It was a great experience. You get the chance to meet people from all over the world and living in the city as a student really gives you a different perspective than visiting the city as a tourist. It broadens your horizons and you make great friends.” Adam has completed a Bachelor’s degree in Commerce and Management as well as a Graduate Diploma in Commerce and is now self-employed. PAGE 48

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 made friends for life as a result.

Living in the Halls

Food glorious food

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 • 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 – so all you need is your favourite pillow, duvet and linen. The eight halls of residence are located near each other on the Lincoln campus, and the residents in the catered halls all 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 our first year students reside in the catered halls and those that are more mature live in our self-catered flats.

PAGE 56

www.lincoln.ac.nz

If you are living in a catered Hall of Residence you will be provided with buffet-style 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. Applying for the Halls of Residence This can be done on-line and must be completed by 1 October the year prior to your studies. If you are an international student, your application deadline is 10 December in the year prior to study. We encourage you to apply early, as places are limited and preference will be given to those who apply first. Late applications will be considered if there are rooms available.


Social activities at Lincoln and in Christchurch No matter whether you love to snowboard, salsa dance, listen to the symphony, cheer for the Crusaders or the local Lincoln Uni rugby team or hang out at the end of term garden parties, Lincoln and Canterbury can offer it all! There is no shortage of entertainment and action to be had on campus or off, with the Lincoln University Students Association (LUSA) constantly organising events and co-ordinating clubs and sporting groups. If you want to enjoy the nightlife in the city, the buses are not far away. Christchurch has an active nightlife – from the clubs and cafes of the Strip, to Manchester Street's Boogie Nights, SOL Square and Poplar Lane, the city is alive with people enjoying themselves until late, almost every night of the week. Of course, Canterbury is well represented on the sporting side of the entertainment ledger, with games ranging from Super 14 to international tests on nearly every weekend.

Budgeting It is realistic to budget NZ$13,000 for living costs annually. This does not include the cost of travel to and from your country. OTHER COSTS

This will vary depending on the course – allow up to NZ$1,000 for course-related costs Student Services Levy Compulsory fee for all students of NZ$300 (2009) Car Parking Free Textbooks

Bus

NZ$3.50 Lincoln to Christchurch, NZ$2.60 with a Metrocard Sports and Recreation NZ$80 for full year membership, or NZ$60 per semester Centre Dining hall

Hot meal: large NZ$5.50, small NZ$4.00

(Meals are included if you stay in the catered halls)

Please note: The above prices were correct at the time of printing and are subject to change.

If the arts are of interest, the city has a number of art galleries, the Arts Centre, movie theatres, live theatre and concerts, as well as many fascinating shops to explore. And of course, the city is perfectly located between the ocean and the mountains, meaning you can be at the beach in the morning and the local ski-fields in the afternoon.

Insurance Premiums The following prices are effective from 1 December 2008*: • NZ$493 for 12 months’ cover • NZ$246.50 for six months’ cover (for students on part year courses only) • NZ$41.08 per month (for students on short courses – minimum cover is one month) • NZ$986 for 12 months’ family policy. * Insurance premiums are subject to occasional market fluctuations. See www.lincoln.ac.nz for latest updates. Assessment MARSH Ltd provides an assessment service advising Lincoln University of policies that meet the required standards. Lincoln University strongly advises students not to take out insurance from their home country as policies generally do not meet the specific requirements for New Zealand compliance. Students cannot be permitted to register with non-compliant insurance. Policies that have been assessed and approved by MARSH Ltd are listed on the University website. Please note: Lincoln University reserves the right to amend this list at any time.

Students are advised to check with Student Services staff. It is the student's responsibility to maintain a valid visa/permit at all times.
