  • You will get hands-on with our arable land, a variety of livestock and machinery in practical assignments and teaching sessions.
  • You will receive interactive teaching throughout, developing leadership skills while building confidence in the contribution you can make to the industry.
  • We place an emphasis on making science applied and highly relevant, providing you with a deep understanding of the reasons behind agricultural management decisions.
  • We welcome students from both farming and non-farming backgrounds. Extra tutorial support is provided to build up an understanding of the sector and develop academic skills if you need it.
  • You will learn from expert academic staff who have fantastic connections within the UK and across Europe.
