Linkoln University Extends Interest For PNG Students

A University in New Zealand has extended its interest for Papua New Guinea students to study there.

The Lincoln University, hosted a seminar for prospective sponsors and students information for interested candidates today.


Known for its specialisation in land based agriculture, Lincoln University Assistant Vice Chancellor, Communities, Professor Hirini Matunga said skills based training is vital for PNG and all Pacific Nations.


The seminar attracted many school leavers, post and under graduate Diploma and Degree holders.


The curious faces in attendance were all interested to take up studies in New Zealand’s Lincoln University.


But according to Professor Matunga, the University will accept on average, five students per enrolment.


Formerly an Agriculture college, it was converted to university status in 1993, it has a strong history focusing on Agriculture.


Mr Matunga said PNG has over 80 percent of its population depending on agriculture, and their expertise and experience will add value to the university’s knowledge.


The university has been enrolling PNG students since 1993.


Culture and Tourism Minister, Boka Kondra, said so far he has spent over four million kina from the DSIP funds, sponsoring students from his electorate to the university. 


Sohe MP, Delilah Gore, has five students from her electorate studying there as well.
