While course planning remains a student responsibility, the following notes will outline some key considerations and show several sample programmes of study as a guide.
- You should plan your programme for the full THREE years. If you make choices on a
semester by semester basis, you will find that some courses you are interested in future
years cannot be taken as you will lack the necessary or recommended prior learning.
Choose the courses you want to do in your final year to suit your career goals, then courses
in your second year then lastly, courses in your first year. Fit electives (courses of your
choosing) around the core (mandatory) courses.
- Scheduling in reverse is necessary for TWO reasons – firstly, you want the degree to be
focussed on your career goals so the choices of courses should match the knowledge and
skills required in your future career, and secondly, all courses have ‘pre-requisites’ or
‘recommended preparation’ requirements and must fit within the timetable.
Ask for help to prepare the plan - course advisors know the courses offered by the university and the requirements of a wide range of job types in the agriculture and horticulture industry. To contact an advisor, click on one of the links below:
