Course summary

This course is aimed at agricultural and environmental advisers, vets, FE lecturers and technical sales staff. If you work in one of these areas, or would like to, this blended or distance learning course is the ideal way to develop your advisory skills, update your technical knowledge and gain a postgraduate qualification while you are working. This unique course provides a diverse blend of options in communication skills, science and business. To deliver this range of skills two Aberystwyth University departments, IBERS and Aberystwyth Business School, have partnered with Menter a Busnes, a Welsh company specialising in agricultural knowledge exchange, who provide practical workshop sessions.

How will I learn?

Modules can be taken for your own continuing professional development or interest, or they can be built towards a Postgraduate Certificate. Each topic is delivered by Aberystwyth University’s Business School or IBERS, or by Bangor University. To complete a PGCert part-time you can take no more than two years.

The Business School modules comprise workshop-based learning focussed on improving your interactions with farmers and farming groups for effective knowledge exchange. These modules are delivered in association with Menter a Busnes through two, two-day workshops and a final one-day workshop to allow you to develop and practice your Knowledge Exchange ese are supplemented by on-line assignment work.

The modules delivered by IBERS and by Bangor University are entirely online distance learning. Each module includes recorded lectures from academics and industry experts, presentations, podcasts, e-group projects, guided readings, interactive workbooks and discussion forums, as well as assignments and e-tutorials.
