Course summary

This intensive course in agriculture is unique to the Royal Agricultural University and provides an opportunity for graduates or professionals in other disciplines to re-direct their careers towards agricultural and associated rural industries.

Course overview

This is a unique opportunity to create your own bespoke course in a way that will help you realise your ambitions, whether you are a student or a professional with plans to advance your career in the rural industries.

Not only will you gain a detailed understanding of the UK agricultural industry, you will be given practical rural skills training at the RAU’s cutting-edge John Oldacre Rural Innovation Centre.

A summer study tour gives you the added opportunity of expanding your knowledge and contacts base by engaging directly with a variety of agricultural enterprises.

While many graduates find work as farm managers, farm assurance scheme officers and agricultural consultants, to name a few, others wish to progress onto a Masters course.

Teaching

As well as lectures, farm walks and visits, you will work on case studies, assignments, and management projects.

Prospective students are strongly encouraged to complete pre-course reading in order to secure a minimum basic knowledge of agriculture and to highlight possible areas of weakness.
