KUCHING: Students and parents will have the opportunity to meet an official from Lincoln University of New Zealand, Jennifer Wilson, for a personal student counselling session at the NZ Centre here on March 20, from 2pm to 5pm.

The centre is located next to the Carvery Restaurant on Ground Floor, Lot 2067, Jalan Utama, Pending, opposite Telekom Malaysia. The NZ Centre was established here recently as an official representative for all New Zealand universities.

The counselling session will be a great opportunity to talk face-to-face on a one-to-one basis and hear them talk about the exciting opportunities available in the university. Students are encouraged to bring their certificates/result for assessment. On the same day and time, a representative from University of Waikato will also be present at the NZ Centre to conduct student counselling sessions.

Lincoln University is one of New Zealand's oldest tertiary educational institutions. Established in 1878, Lincoln enjoys a reputation and excellence in teaching and research in tertiary education including commerce and management, primary production and natural resources, science and engineering, and social science.

One aspect from Lincoln's origin as an agricultural college remains true for the new millennium; Lincoln graduates are `doers', prepared to roll up their sleeves with a practical approach to work.

Sarawak collaborates with New Zealand to develop its eco-tourism projects, particularly the management of national parks. The university has been providing training programmes for Forest Department personnel.

To-date, 38 Lincoln graduates are at work at various national parks and another 30 are still involved in various stages of the programme. The graduates' enhanced knowledge and skills make them valuable assets in the growing field of eco-tourism.

Lincoln University is located in the city of Christchurch. Christchurch city is multicultural with strong networks supporting student study, cultural, health, recreation and religious needs.

The city offers the opportunity to try many types of recreation and leisure activities. Known as the `Garden City', Christchurch also has some of the most picturesque parks, reserves and outdoor areas found in New Zealand. It provides a safe and conducive environment to study.
