Bachelor of Science in Agriculture 3 year full time course in Waterford Institute of Technology

What is the BSc in Agriculture course?

Agriculture is of major importance to the Irish economy and most farms are family-operated with the farmer being the owner and manager and operator. The first two years of the course concentrates on equipping the student with the knowledge and skills needed to manage a modern commercial farm. The third year aims to expand the student’s business, managerial, scientific and IT skills.

This course fulfils the requirements for stamp duty exemption or land transfer for young farmers (Green Cert.)

Kildalton College

Students take agriculture-based modules at Kildalton Agricultural College and scientific related modules are taken at WIT. A free bus service operates between WIT and Kildalton.

Farm Placement

In the second year of the course students spend 12 weeks on farms specially chosen by Teagasc in order to get practical experience on high quality commercial farms. A number of students choose to travel overseas for farm experience e.g. New Zealand.

Students who have successfully completed a FETAC approved Level 5 or Level 6 with a merit at Kildalton College or equivalent can apply to transfer into Year 2 of the BSc in Agriculture. Students can apply through the WIT website (www.wit.ie/advancedentry) or contact the course leader
