Education and Training

The career opportunities in the chicken meat industry are many and varied.  We have pulled together some of this information into a two page flyer on careers in the chicken meat industry which is available for download as a PDF file by clicking here.

Tertiary courses

Many Australian tertiary education institutions offer courses aimed at the poultry industry, particularly in their veterinary schools. We invite any organisation that is involved in education and training directly relevant to the chicken meat industry to provide us with a summary statement of what is on offer and contacts for further information, as well as a link to the appropriate website. We hope that this will in due course allow this site to act as a directory for prospective undergraduate and graduate students.

The graduate and post-graduate courses as well as the on-line courses available in poultry sciences are detailed in a convenient format on the Australian Poultry CRC website. To go directly to the Education section of that web site, click here.
