In Australia, the best-ranked universities that offer agricultural science programs also enourage and teach students who might be thinking about research careers in many areas of the agricultural sector.

Agricultural Science Courses in Australia

Students can choose from a list of top universities offering agricultural science programs. In terms of the number of agricultural science students, the University of Melbourne, the University of Queensland (UQ), and Charles Sturt University(CSU) lead the list.

Undergraduate students of agricultural science in Melbourne gain knowledge about ensuring the success of animal enterprises. In crop production management, students learn how good resource allocation can ensure the harvest of premium-quality products. In UQ, the Bachelor of Agricultural Science Honours program gives students an international experience through a three-week program in Gadjah Maja University located in Indonesia.

Postgraduate students have greater flexibility in terms of choosing their focus area. In Melbourne University's Master of Agricultural Science program, students can choose whether to specialise in one specific area or in four different areas. Another example of a postgraduate program is the Master of Viticulture and Oenology offered by CSU. This focuses on wine production, and students can choose to study on campus or through distance learning.
