Plant-based enterprises operate in a regulated environment and need well trained knowledgeable professionals with a knowledge of plant genetics and physiology, molecular genetics and biotechnology as well as plant pests and diseases.

Our ‘Added Value’ programme enables you to undertake further specialist training in order to meet your own individual career aspirations, including fruit-industry based training programmes.

You will explore areas including:

  • plant physiology and development

  • genetics of plant breeding
