The AGCAP Pathway leads to the Bachelor of Agrifood Systems offered by the University of New England (UNE).
Candidates are first required to enrol with a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) in order to complete the Vocational Education Training (VET) Diploma in Agriculture.
Credit gained from studying a Diploma or Advanced Diploma at Tocal College may account for up to 50% of a Bachelor of Agrifood Systems.
This undergraduate program is designed for those who want to progress their career into agricultural management. There are four major areas of study:
- Crop Production
- Livestock Production
- Production Horticulture
- Poultry Production.
The course covers the latest technology and production techniques for each industry sector. Students will complete vocational units to develop practical skills in farm management, while deepening their understanding of the science and technology of modern agriculture through the UNE units.
Articulation into a Bachelor of AgrifoodSystems, studied full time or part time, means that graduate incur a lower HECS debt than through conventional pathways.
