Welcome to the School of Agricultural Sciences
Briefly, the School of Agricultural Sciences comprises of 4 disciplines: Agricultural Economics and Extension, Animal Health, Animal Sciences and Crop Sciences. Students are enrolled into under- and post-graduate programs where they are expertly trained in the various disciplines. Research activities are supported by a teaching and research farm hosting beef cattle, dairy cows, goats, sheep, and poultry. The farm also boasts several acres of arable land and green houses, which are partly supported by irrigation. The SoAS houses the Centre for Animal Health Studies, which trains Animal Health technicians at undergraduate and postgraduate levels. Research in the various disciplines is supported by a number of laboratories, which we continue to equip to enable a wide range of research activities. For more details on what research opportunities are on offer, prospective postgraduate students are encouraged to get in touch with our subject specialists in the various disciplines. Agricultural research is a major driver of economic development and a qualification in this field will allow you to play your part in shaping the future of mankind. We look forward to welcoming you into the SoAS as you embark on a journey of scientific discovery and self-empowerment.
Prospective students must please take note that our School of Agricultural Sciences is currently only on our Mahikeng Campus where the language of teaching-learning is English.
