The Lincoln University – New Zealand is awarding the Vice Chancellor’s Scholarships which is worth NZ$5,000 in equal payments of NZ$2,500 each for two semesters to students who want to undergo a degree program at the Institution.
The scholarship was established to support and reward international students of the highest academic ability in further study at Lincoln University.
Through the late 1990s, the university’s sites in Hull were scaled down as the focus shifted towards Lincoln. In 2001 this process took a step further when it was decided to move the administrative headquarters and management to Lincoln and to sell the Cottingham Road campus in Hull, the former main campus, to its neighbour, the University of Hull. The site now houses the Hull York Medical School. Until 2012 the university maintained a smaller campus, the Derek Crothall Building, in Hull city centre. Another campus and student halls in Beverley Road, Hull, were also sold for redevelopment.
In 2012 all agricultural further education provisions were transferred from Riseholme College to Bishop Burton College. Bishop Burton College has now moved into a new, purpose-built site at the Lincolnshire Showground with only limited use of the Riseholme Campus which has now mainly reverted to the University of Lincoln from 2021 onwards. Development of the site has not been decided but the university has purchased the recently vacated Lawress Hall a former training, conferencing and wedding venue on an adjacent site which was formerly owned by the Government.
March 2021 saw the new Lincoln Medical School open in time for the 2021/2022 academic year. The building, on the Brayfood Pool campus, features lecture theatres, trainee observation theatres and a library dedicated to medical research, allied health care, pharmacy, chemistry and biology textbooks. It is run as a partnership with the University of Nottingham Medical School.
