Summary

The Diploma in Agriculture continues this tradition, giving students the opportunity to enhance their agricultural and farm management knowledge through a programme of eight integrated courses. These cover farm management, associated husbandries and other required skills, including the physical and financial aspects of business planning. The focus is on 'applied management' with a combined aim of producing graduates ready to operate in the professional agricultural environment.

This programme is about New Zealand agriculture, its resources and management systems, so it is essential that students entering the DipAg are familiar with, or have had, experience working in at least one of these systems.

Practical Work

A period of Practical Work is a requirement of this qualification and full details are available in the Dip.Ag. Practical Work Handbook.

The minimum requirement is for a total of 12 weeks Practical Work (preferably full-time) on two different farm types, with the shortest period accepted being 4 weeks. At least 6 of these 12 weeks should be completed before the commencement of studies.

It is important that students in this programme have the following attributes to ensure successful completion of the Practical Work:

• Competence in driving vehicles (previous tractor or truck driving experience is an advantage)

• Physical ability for working on farms without endangering yourself or others.
