  • Objectives
    Need an alternative entry path into agribusiness? Are you keen to study agribusiness but don't meet the entry requirements? If you haven't undertaken the Tertiary Entrance Examination (TEE) or achieved the minimum TER to gain entry, this enabling course offers you an alternative pathway into the Associate Degree in Agribusiness or Bachelor of Agribusiness. In this course, you will learn how to effectively utilise major Microsoft programs, such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Internet Explorer and Windows Explorer, in an agricultural context. You will study mathematics and develop strong written and oral communication skills, including important academic writing skills. Your farm practice units will link your study with the practice of agriculture. In this course you will spend 12 weeks studying at the Northam Campus. The first six week intensive course starts in mid March and the second six week course starts in early September. During the remainder of the year you will be required to undertake a minimum of six months full-time work experience in an agribusiness organisation, which may include a farming operation.
