Modern agriculture: In the UK 75 per cent of our land area is used for agriculture and 12.5 per cent of the population is actively involved in food production from farm to fork. Agriculture can be defined as the principle and practice of primary food production and alternative crops in a sustainable manner. Modern agriculture is a diverse and highly advanced technological industry. With the changing emphasis on land use and issues such as security of food supply, reconnecting the food chain, protecting the environment, sustainability and biofuels, agriculture is once again at the forefront of the political agenda, and the outlook for the industry is now very buoyant.

Assessment method

Assessment is via a balance of course work and examination. Weighting varies depending on course and year of study, but weighting is typically around 65 per cent on course work and 35 per cent on examination; this allows individuals to play to their strengths if they are better at course work than examinations or vice versa. Types of assignment include appraising production systems on the University farm, whole farm case studies, laboratory based analyses and literature based reviews. Format of assignments varies and includes written reports, essays, technical notes, presentations and oral examinations. Students receive written feedback on all course work to help them improve. In addition, first year students undertake examinations in two subjects at the end of the first term to enable them to gauge how they are progressing and feedback is provided on these exams. Staff are able to provide advice and guidance on revision, and many modules include revision sessions.
