Senior Tutor in English Language

Lincoln University

New Zealand



As the longest-running agriculturally-based university in the Southern Hemisphere, Lincoln University’s story begins with farming, but it certainly doesn’t end there. As New Zealand’s economy diversified, so have we. Lincoln University is here to enhance and enrich lives. To grow the knowledge of our students so they can shape a world that benefits from a greater understanding of the relationship between our land, the food produced from it and the ecosystems within it. With three academic faculties, one teaching division, several research centres and a range of corporate service units, the Lincoln University draws its students from throughout New Zealand and from over 60 countries. Lincoln University has a student roll of around 3,000 and approximately 700 staff.

The Lincoln University Studies and English Language Division delivers programmes for international and domestic students transitioning to undergraduate and postgraduate study, developing the skills, strategies and subject knowledge necessary to succeed as self-directed independent learners in an English language, tertiary context. 

Lincoln University has established a national and international reputation, both for the quality of its applied teaching and the contribution of its research. We want you to come and be part of shaping its future.
