About the courseThe 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 Dip.Agr. are familiar with, or have had, experience working in at least one of these systems.Students study the Diploma in Agriculture on the Lincoln campus, or can study part-time through our Regional Diploma while living and working at home.
