Becoming part of the College Community
The main criteria for entrance to this course is an interest and aptitude in agriculture and related areas, and a positive attitude towards residential, college and rural life.
Students need to have completed Year 9 or 10 and achieved satisfactory results in Math, Science and English. Units in Agriculture and Manual Arts would also be beneficial, but are not essential.
As part of the selection procedure, we offer interested students a free one week trial session. This is an opportunity to live at our Residential Campus and work alongside current students on the farm and in Design and Technology workshops. Prospective students find this a worthwhile experience as they are able to see for themselves what we, at WA College of Agriculture - Morawa, are all about and whether this type of education suits them. There is no cost for the trial but students are expected to arrange their own transport to and from Morawa. Students start their week on Sunday and are picked up on Thursday afternoon or make use of public transport.
