What will I learn?
The programme is designed to build your subject knowledge as the course progresses and explores topics in greater depth.
A combination of industrial placements in each year, annual residential field trips, visiting speakers and specialist lectures will maximise your industry exposure.
Start to specialise with optional modules in one of three pathways – crops, livestock or general agriculture.
How will I be assessed?
Final and in-session assessment will allow you to develop research and study skills as well as technical and expert knowledge.
Assessments include written assignments, presentations, project and lab reports, practical based and online portfolios and examinations.
Where can I go from here?
You can continue your studies with our BSc (Hons) Top-up programme, or enter industry. Graduates could use their skills to start a business or to work in agriculture.
