Agriculture at Nottingham Trent University - UCAS

Course summary

Feeding an increasing population against a backdrop of different weather patterns induced by climate change is a major challenge to the farming industry’s future. This course focuses on innovative approaches to agriculture, providing you with the skills and knowledge needed to apply sustainable agriculture practices and play a part in global food security. Designed in consultation with the National Trust – one of the largest landowners in the UK – it gives you the opportunity to study on the University’s 200-hectare farm and rural estate, based at our Brackenhurst Campus. Your learning will focus on modern technologies, such of the use of GPS, drones, robotics and data analysis systems – this agriculture course really does turn traditional land-based degrees on their head. You’ll explore innovative and sustainable agricultural production models, effective environmental stewardship, and the projected future of the farming industry.
