The importance of agriculture and good to the nation has been clearly demonstrated over the last few years. Where the country gets its food and how it has been produced is becoming ever more complex and with it comes industry demand for qualified recruits. Agriculture and food are big business in the UK and abroad and once studied can be your passport into employment or further enrichment overseas.
The two day full-time study structure will allow students to travel longer distances to travel with just one overnight stay. Part-time (one day) is also available. Both modes of study will enable students to continue in employment alongside study.
On completion of the FdSc (two years full time), students can apply for a one year top-up to gain full Bsc (Hons).
Industry links form a critical part of our course with regular visits, guest speakers and workshops from sector leaders.
