This conversion course allows students who have gained a HND or foundation degree in Agri-business, or a related subject, to top-up to a full honours degree. The course is structured around a programme of lectures, tutorials and seminars delivered over an academic year (September to June). If you choose to top-up to a full honours degree you will then undertake a further six months of study, in which you will complete an Honours Research Project, and further selected modules to allow you to achieve the correct number of credits to be awarded the BSc (Hons) qualification.

Assessment is via a balance of course work and examination. Students receive written feedback on all course work to help them improve. In addition, first year students undertake an examination in one subject at the end of the first term to enable them to gauge how they are progressing and feedback is provided on this exam. Course work may be reports, presentations or portfolios and may be produced individually or in a team. All students will complete an individual project in their final year.
