Lincoln and the Canterbury region
Welcome to Canterbury
Our campus is located in the Lincoln township, a thriving village on the Canterbury plains. Lincoln is small and very friendly. It boasts local pubs, great cafés and eateries, shops and even its own farmers and craft market. Twenty minutes away is Christchurch, which is transforming itself into one of the world’s most sustainable cities. Its rapidly evolving culture and energy makes it ideal for students. And no more than a couple of hours from Christchurch, Canterbury offers a huge range of exciting recreational options in areas of incredible natural beauty – you can bungy jump, hike, mountain bike, raft, surf, swim, play golf, shop, visit wineries and gardens, and so much more.
