The Graduate Certificate in Agriculture (Agricultural Consulting) had 33 enrolments in Trimester 1 2014, showing continuing good enrolments relative to the target of 20. Coordination of the units is now done by a permanent UNE staff member with some support provided to assist with marking and delivery.

In Term 1 2014, UNE had the highest ever enrolments in the units developed during Sheep CRC1 and licensed to the Australian Wool Education Trust, with 78 students enrolled in Sheep Production and 18 Students enrolled in Wool Biology and Metrology. The majority of the students are from universities other than UNE.

With regard to the PICSE and RYAG programs, a final report of the uneGRASS (Growing Regional and Agricultural Students in Science) project has been submitted to the CRC.
