Why the Diploma in Agriculture Program?
I have always been passionate about agriculture as I grew up on a farm. I heard of many great experiences that others had in the program so this motivated me to take diploma.
How did the program help you get to where you are today?
I am currently continuing my education and taking my degree. Diploma had a different perspective on Agriculture and it is a great tool to have in the tool box for my career ahead and to take back to the farm.
Tell us a highlight of the program.
The program content is very unique and the farm management courses allow you to study your operation specifically. The instructors were very accommodating and helpful. They all had their own experiences in the industry that they brought to the table.
Any advice for students considering the program?
The diploma program is a very tight-knit community and you will make great connections with incredible people. It is an opportunity that I do not regret and will help me open many doors in the future.
