Agriculture and Horticulture




New Zealand’s specialist land-based university
Where you
want to be.
Primary production is an essential part of New Zealand’s
economy, with agriculture and related industries currently
earning more than 50% of our total export income. These
industries consistently compete against, and beat, competitors
in challenging, and often protected, world markets.
The demand for activities that will increase the value of our primary
products has resulted in the need for graduates in the areas of research,
marketing and technology transfer. Lincoln University BAgr and BAgrSci
graduates are now so highly sought after that many are “head-hunted” by
employers before they even graduate for career opportunities ranging from
farm management and farm consultancy to export initiatives, agricultural
research, sales and marketing.

Bachelor of Commerce (Agriculture) graduates move into careers ranging
from farm and horticultural consultancy, farm management and property
management, through to rural banking, rural valuation, agribusiness and the
fertiliser, seed and livestock industries. There is particularly high demand for
Lincoln University graduates in the banking sector, with many banks seeking
the unique combination of skills provided by this degree.

If you are looking to move into management, our Diplomas of Agriculture,
Farm Management, Horticulture and Horticulture Management prepare you to
manage modern agricultural enterprises. The emphasis on applied business
management combined with agricultural and production courses makes
these diplomas very attractive to employers.

Five reasons to choose our
specialist university
         As New Zealand’s specialist land-based university,
         Lincoln University has played a primary role in training
         managers, researchers, consultants and employees
         within these sectors for more than 130 years.




                                                                    Studying Agriculture and

      There are opportunities
      to study Agriculture and
      Horticulture from a Science
      or Commerce focus.
Lincoln University graduates have
a reputation for “hitting the ground
running” because our qualifications
are so much more applied and
relevant than many alternatives. Real
world examples are intergrated into
the teaching programmes through
case studies, field trips and tours.
All students also do a period of
industry-based work experience as a
requirement of the programmes.




                                         Through its relationships with other providers
                                         (industry training organisations, polytechnics
                                         etc), Lincoln can offer a seamless pathway for
                                         students with vocational (skills) qualifications
                                         into Lincoln’s applied academic diplomas and
                                        degrees, and to research focused postgraduate
                                           qualifications. Students can take advantage
                                         of Lincoln’s close relationship with employers
                                                through the Practical Work programme.

                                   and sales, analysing data and liaising with farmers and agribusinesses
                                   regarding their field data management requirements.

                                   What she enjoyed most about her time at Lincoln was the opportunity to learn
                                   more about the industry and farming systems. “The Bachelor of Agricultural
                                   Science at Lincoln is a great way to study a broad range of topics within
                                   agriculture and offers a good balance between science and agriculture.
                                   At Lincoln I gained time management, analytical and communication
                                   skills enabling me to successfully work under pressure and achieve high
                                   level outcomes.”

                                                         “Through my study I met many leading agricultural
                                                         professionals, enabling me to develop my skills
                                                         and enter the industry successfully.”

GEORGE YOUNGMAN            A part-time job at a wholesale nursery further developed George Youngman’s
BACHELOR OF                passion for working around and with plants. “Once I received the job at the
HORTICULTURE GRADUATE      garden centre, I knew it was the desired career for me.”
GARDEN NURSERY ADVISOR,
TERRA VIVA HOME & GARDEN   To increase his knowledge and skills he decided to start the Diploma of
                           Horticulture course. “I knew Lincoln University had a good name in the
                           industry and I guess I was lucky living in Christchurch. Once I clicked with
                           horticulture I knew Lincoln was the obvious choice.”

                           George found the hands-on side of the course great, as well as the regular
                           contact with the course advisor which kept him on the right track.

                            “All staff are always willing and glad to be of help. Really, if it weren’t for their
                           guidance I’m not sure I would’ve done as well as I did!” Adding to this he says
                           that he loved the fact that he was studying exactly what he was passionate
                           about and wanted to do. He also enjoyed the social activities at Lincoln
                           University. “The Garden Party at the end of every year is a massive occasion.”

                           After successfully completing the Diploma of Horticulture course George
                           decided to progress to the Diploma of Horticulture Management. “It was great
                           learning the theory of horticulture at Lincoln University and then being able to
                           apply the practical aspect at my job.”

                           When deciding what to study George advises students to choose an area they
                           are very interested in. “If horticulture is your passion, give it everything you’ve
                           got. It is a growing industry with plenty of room for other young people to get
                           involved in.”


                                                              “Studying at Lincoln University has
                                                              upgraded my skills massively and my
                                                              aim is to apply these skills to build a
                                                              career in the industry.”
