The program takes place on the south island of New Zealand at Lincoln University which is about 15 miles from the city of Christchurch. Our host for the month is Lincoln University  and students on the program stay in single dorm rooms on campus.  We meet for class 4 days a week and have field trips 3-4 days per week – so we keep you very busy!  Most of our field trips are to real farms or “stations” as they call them in New Zealand.  You also have plenty of free time to explore the island on your own. New Zealand is truly one of the most beautiful places in the world. You will be accompanied by Professor Lesa Griffiths and Susan Garey who stay with you at Lincoln University and teach the two courses – which will be an ANFS animal science course and an AGRI sustainable agriculture course.  If you are interested, come to the Interest Meeting on the 5th and send Dr. Griffiths an email: saying that you are interested and she will start the “Interest List” to keep you apprised of program planning updates.
