A key partner in this programme is Clonakilty Agricultural College which is locally known as Darrara College and has been involved in agricultural education since it was left to the local parish and later to the state for that purpose in 1905. The college aims to train students for employment in the agricultural industry and to equip young entrants into farming with the knowledge and skills to become professional farmers. 


The programme focuses in two areas

  • Dairy Herd Management ‐ commercial activity plus postgraduate opportunities
  • Food stream ‐ facilitating commercial side of food business/agri business and also postgraduate links


The Honours degree will also afford graduates the opportunity to pursue relevant level 9 postgraduate study programmes here in Ireland and overseas.
