This practical foundation degree programme in Agriculture 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. 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.



Coursework (written assignments, projects and presentations) as well as end of year examinations.

Successful students can enhance their skills and progress onto the BSc (Hons) Agriculture programme. Graduates will also be fully prepared for managerial and technical positions within the agriculture industry.
