Find out more about the TEF.

The agricultural sector faces a number of significant challenges in the future from climate change to floods and droughts, an ever-increasing world population and changes in European policies. All of these factors contribute to a sector that needs graduates who possess well developed business skills combined with a thorough understanding of the agricultural business sector to respond to these constraints. These courses cover a range of both agricultural and business subjects that will enable students to understand the agri-business sector. Students will develop a range of skills to work independently and to demonstrate competence and attitudes required in a professional working life. The course will prepare students for a graduate career in the agri-supply chain and also the opportunity to transfer to a BSc (Hons).

Assessment method

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.
