The first year of study in the Bachelor of Agriculture has with a focus on hands-on learning utilising our full-scale agricultural training facilities. Development of practical skills creates a strong foundation allowing students to move confidently into more academic study and industry placement during the remainder of the program. Years two and three of the degree are delivered by CQUniversity, with an option for fourth year honours also available.

In addition to a Bachelor of Agriculture graduates can also apply to be awarded an AHC50116 Diploma of Agriculture from Queensland Agricultural Training Colleges (due to having undertaken training for a range of practical skills during their first year).
