College of Agriculture, Fisheries & Forestry (CAFF)

Fiji College of Agriculture (FCA) was established in 1954 and offers Diploma in Tropical Agriculture to Fiji and regional students.However, in 2010, FCA undergoes changes and it became the College of Agriculture, Fisheries & Forestry (CAFF) under the Fiji National University (FNU).

The Diploma in Tropical Agriculture Programme is a three year course. The programme is based on the application of scientific and economic principles and on sound husbandry techniques to meet the requirements of a developing Fiji agricultural industry. The Department of Agriculture has a wider objective than simply preparing graduates to find employment in the formal agriculture sector.

The course is divided into six semesters of approximately 15 weeks each. The Diploma in Tropical Agriculture Programme is a residential course and therefore allows the students opportunities to become fully conversant with the seasonal activities of the college livestock and crop units.

The aim of the programme is to produce graduates who have knowledge and practical skills in agricultural production, management, marketing and extension. The programme seeks to give students sound knowledge of sustainable farming systems in Fiji ranging from subsistence smallholders to large scale farms.

The department is mainly responsible for meeting the human resource needs of the country in areas of agriculture. It places great emphasis on research conducted in agriculture and there are excellent opportunities provided to staff for their development.
