Swirl, sniff, sip, spit and study
Do you have dreams of growing your own grapes or producing some wine in Burgundy, Margaret River or the Granite Belt? Do you want to be an important part of an exciting and growing industry? Dream no more. USQ’s Bachelor of Science (Wine Science) is the only degree of its type in Northern Australia and it will not disappoint.
Utilising a purpose-built $8.5 million education and training facility, the Queensland College of Wine Tourism, this degree offers on-site training in commercial vineyards, wineries, winery laboratories, and sensory analysis in association with regional wine shows. Who could resist a residential school in the heart of one of Australia’s burgeoning wine districts? Highly applied and analytical, the course is suitable for school leavers, international students, producers and those of you looking for a career change.
