Course summary

Growing food in the UK has become a key aspect of national security, with an impact on the welfare of all citizens and a higher political profile since the last War. Academically, the sciences which underpin all aspects of agriculture: food, fodder, fuel and fibre, have diversified and become more sophisticated.This degree programme provides knowledge about the current and future science of agriculture, in the next few decades and beyond, combined with practical experience of both crop and livestock husbandry..All students will be challenged to develop an in-depth knowledge of agriculture combined with all relevant practical skills. This will include crop and livestock science and especially the newer molecular disciplines. Expertise in modern machinery will also be developed, including precision technologies. Students will gain the confidence to work in farm situations, within a wide range of crops and livestock enterprises and make informed decisions for profitable yet sustainable outcomes.Most importantly, graduates will learn to appreciate farms as integral systems and manage them in a regime of environmental, economic, social and political constraints. This will entail the development of keen critical skills to identify challenges and successful opportunities as the food chain becomes transformed in the next few decades.Students will develop skills in the management of a range of farm types from arable to livestock. However skills will also be developed in networking opportunities within the industry.Students will also develop transferable skills essential for a successful career including communication and presentation skills, research skills will be developed throughout the programme. Assessment will include coursework which will develop the students report writing skills. Organisational skills which are essential will be developed throughout the programme as students will be required to manage their academic workload.A typical week will be around 2 – 3 days of contact time where students are expected to be in lectures / practical sessions. In addition to this students will be expected to carry out private study / research/ back ground reading / preparation for exams and course work which occupy an additional 2 - 3 days a week. Graduates can engage with agriculture industries in the UK and Europe and use their intellect and skills to work effectively with all stakeholders throughout the food chain. These industries are currently in need of graduates and the current shortages mean that students with the critical skills gained from this degree are able to develop successful management careers across production, advisory, post-harvest, processing and retail sectors.
