KUCHING - Lincoln University of New Zealand will be conducting student counselling sessions at NZ Centre here on 20 March from 2-5 pm.
Jennifer Wilson of Lincoln University will be flying personally into Kuching for the roadshow.
Students and parents are welcomed to come and meet the officials from Lincoln University at the centre Established in 1878, Lincoln University is one of New Zealand's oldest tertiary educational institutions.
Lincoln enjoys a reputation of 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 origins 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. Lincoln University has been providing training programmes for Forestry Department personnel in Sarawak. To date, 38 Lincoln graduates are at work in the 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 ecotourism.
Lincoln University is located in the city of Christchurch, a multicultural city 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', Christchruch 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.
This will be 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, Vivienne Kingsbury of the University of Waikato will also be present at the NZ Centre to conduct student counselling session.
