Agricultural Science

In order to successfully obtain a Masters qualification, you will need to obtain a number of credits by passing individual modules. Most taught Masters will have a number of core modules which you must take and pass in order to obtain the qualification. The assessment of research Masters is almost always entirely by a single dissertation module or project.

Agricultural science encompasses a wide area of topics, and classes can be taken at schools all over the world. Topics include food science, farming, forest technology, agroecology, veterinary medicine, biological engineering, wildlife technology and crop science.

Australia has a subsidized higher education for students pursuing the undergraduate degrees. They also give loan and grants for the post graduate students. Higher learning starts at undergraduate degree level to a doctoral degree offered in any field of study.
