NOUN AGRICULTURAL ADMISSION

 

GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS

 

To graduate, a student shall have undergone 4 or 5 years of study depending on his entry point, including 12 calendar months of Farm Practical Year (FPY/SIWES). 

 

The activities of the farm practical year should include periodic seminars on the student’s work as a way of stimulating interest as well as the presentation of a written report to be graded at the end of the year.

 

Course workload must meet the graduation requirements of the university.  However, in doing so, the student must earn a minimum of 167 credit units for the five-year program and 132 credit units for the four-year (direct entry) program in agriculture and related fields as indicated under course requirements.

 

The submission of an undergraduate project report based on supervised research is a graduation requirement, which must not be compromised. 

 

This requirement exposes the student to problem-solving techniques and provides him with the ability to organize ideas from literature and research findings.  In short, it prepares the student for the work ahead and further training at the post-graduate level.  This area of academic preparation needs to be maintained and developed further.
