Pathway to agriculture

The Diploma in General Studies (DiGS) gives you the opportunity to explore a range of fields and can be used as your pathway into the Bachelor of Agriculture. Build the skills to achieve at university while living in a close-knit and supportive community at our Dookie campus.

In 2020, 15 Destination Australia scholarship opportunities, valued at $15 000 each, were offered to students in the DiGS program, allowing them to study in regional areas such as the Goulburn Valley. If you enter the Bachelor of Agriculture via DiGS, you’ll receive credit towards most of your first-year subjects, meaning you could complete your degree in two years.
