Welcome to Telford
The Telford campus of Lincoln University is located 6km from Balclutha in South Otago and is home to up to 120 residential students undertaking certificates and diplomas in practical land-based subjects – agriculture and rural veterinary technician skills.
The campus is based on a 921 hectare commercial farm, giving students hands-on learning at every step of their study experience. We offer small classes, work experience, and a variety of practical skills. To find out more about what is on offer, check out the onsite programmes listed.
Staff on the Telford campus also run the University’s distance delivery programmes and STAR courses into schools.
News update April 2017
The future of Lincoln University's Telford campus is currently under review, and the University is in active negotiation with Taratahi Agricultural Training Centre about the possible transfer of Lincoln-Telford Division programmes, facilities and operations to Taratahi. It is expected that a decision on any transfer and transition arrangements will be confirmed around July 2017.
In the meantime, the 2017 programmes will continue to run as usual.
However, given the fluidity of this situation Lincoln University cannot guarantee that any or all of its 2017 suite of on-campus and distance programmes will necessarily continue to be available in 2018.
The University will update this website as further information becomes available.
Information specifically for international students will be updated here.
