About the course

What can I expect out of this qualification?

The aim of the Bachelor of Viticulture and Winemaking programme is to produce work ready graduates with the personal attributes and specialised knowledge and practical skills necessary to make an immediate contribution in viticulture and wine industry environments whether locally, nationally or internationally. Students gain substantial theoretical understanding and a broad range of technical and practical skills related to grape growing and wine production. They may also choose elective options which introduce a business management thread. The Programme will utilise the knowledge and expertise of Marlborough and Nelson industry members and the local scientific community to provide an informed and dynamic learning environment for both blended and online learners. Emphasis is placed on applied science and contributing to the sustainability of the New Zealand wine industry. It focuses on vocational learning and a "realistic" approach to viticulture and winemaking.
