Agriculture and Education are the two key areas, which will define the future of our country. In view of that, University of Agriculture, Faisalabad has established its Community College in 2008 with the main objective to disseminate quality education emphasizing on integrated approach to produce skilled manpower in agriculture, basic sciences and allied disciplines. This skilled manpower will serve in public and private sector organizations to uplift the standard of the livelihood of the community.
The UAF Community College has revived Intermediate (Pre-Agriculture) certificate to provide competent nursery for admission at undergraduate level in various disciplines of agriculture and allied subjects. This program will presage into a bright future of young generation through amalgamation of basic sciences with agriculture for new thinking, novel approaches and innovative technical skills to accelerate the growth of agriculture sectors in the country. So, the main incentive behind the commencement of this step is to provide education and learning facilities to the rural masses of 36 districts of Punjab, as they could contribute towards Agriculture and Rural Economic Developments. It would prepare the young students, imbued with the ardor and spirit, to service their country constructively. As the admission is based purely on merit basis on reserved seats for each district of Punjab, the college represents the whole community of Punjab Province. The domicile of candidate for admission is determined from the address of school of matriculation so that a candidate enjoying facilities of URBAN schools may not take seats of rural candidates
