Joint Academic Programs

An international education experience

From North America to Asia to Europe, embark on the adventure of a lifetime and get an education in the process. The Faculty of Agriculture at Dalhousie partners with several universities around the world to provide students with international learning and career opportunities. 

International agriculture

The Fujian Agriculture and Forestry University (FAFU) in Fujian Province, China offers a B.Sc (Agr) program to Chinese students who are interested in studying abroad.

For the first two years of the program you will take ESL courses along with university science, arts and agricultural courses at FAFU. Some courses are bilingual and taught by both FAFU instructors and Faculty of Agriculture and other professors from Canada.

During your second year you will apply to the Dalhousie Faculty of Agriculture. You will need to show acceptable academic performance from your first two years of study and demonstrate English proficiency of IELTS 6.5. 

When you graduate from this program, you will have a B.Sc. (Agr) from the Dalhousie Faculty of Agriculture and be eligible to become a professional agrologist with the P.Ag. designation through the Agricultural Institute of Canada.

Landscape the world

Tamil Nadu Agricultural University (TNAU) was established in 1971 and is one of the leading state agricultural universities in India.

Annamalai University, another well-respected university in southern India has recently offered this same learning opportunity to their students.

The B.Tech in Environmental Landscape Horticulture is uniquely focused on the development of industry-relevant hands-on skills as they apply to landscape maintenance. 

Once you have completed the first three years of the program at one of TNAU’s five campuses, or at Annamalai University, you will apply to the B. Tech in Environmental Landscape Horticulture at the Dalhousie University Faculty of Agriculture where you will finish your last three semesters.

Many graduates of the B.Tech program have successfully entered Masters programs at Dal and other universities in Canada. As a graduate, you are also eligible to apply for a post-graduate work permit so you can gain additional work experience in Canada. 

Study and work on another continent

The Faculty of Agriculture and Dronten University of Applied Sciences in the Netherlands have partnered to offer Dronten's new Bachelor of Agriculture in International Food Business.

While studying for this exciting honours degree, you’ll spend a year abroad studying and working in both America and Europe.

Years one and three are offered at Dal's Faculty of Agriculture at the Agricultural Campus in Truro, NS, with year two offered in The Netherlands. Your fourth year will be spent at your home university.
