Programme Details

ID: B101

Name: (FOA) The Agriculture Bridging Programme (AgriBridge)

Programme Level: Certificate

Programme Overview

The Agriculture Bridging Programme, also known as the AgriBridge, is introduced by the Faculty of Agriculture and first launched in August 2022 with the aim to provide an alternative pathway into Faculty of Agriculture’s Bachelor degrees programmes in Universiti Islam Sultan Sharif Ali (UNISSA) to those who have not quite met the entry requirements of the Faculty.

It is a one semester full-time programme which will not only prepare you for the qualification needed to enter the faculty, but also for student life in a university setting. You will find the programme highly engaging and gain a solid grounding in fundamental agricultural science and business. Thus, we believe that this programme serves as an excellent preparation for further study in the Faculty's Bachelor degree programmes.

Successful completion of the AgriBridge programme, and subject to fulfilling the requirements of faculty, enables you to apply for admission to Faculty of Agriculture’s Bachelor degrees programmes - Bachelor of Science in Agriculture (Agribusiness) and Bachelor of Science in Agriculture (Agrotechnology).
