Course summary

If you want to progress into an agricultural management career, helping to find solutions to the world's most pressing issue of food production and land use, then this course is ideal for you. You don’t need to have an agricultural background; you simply need the passion and drive to work within a fast-changing industry and make that difference. You'll learn how to build a productive, resilient and sustainable industry - whether as a farm manager, agronomist, economist, policymaker, researcher, scientist or consultant – career opportunities are diverse. The extensive industry experience of lecturers, an on-campus commercial farm that supplies Muller, Sainsbury's and Glencore, as well as our £2 million Agri-Tech Centre will prepare you to make that positive impact on the future.  You'll have access to 400 hectares of commercial farmland, offering plenty of opportunities to get handson. This, alongside real-world business briefs and industry placements. You’ll benefit from up to 980 hours working and applying your knowledge as part of your degree.
