Botswana University of Agriculture and Natural Resources Application Guide

Botswana College of Agriculture (BCA), a parastatal institution offering higher-learning in agricultural sciences, has become a fully-fledged university after the government’s approval.

The transformation was announced at a ceremony held at the institution on Tuesday, November 12 and will see the new institution re-named the University of Agriculture and Natural Resources.
