Feeding an increasing population against a backdrop of different weather patterns induced by climate change presents a major challenge to the farming industry’s future. This course focuses on innovative approaches to agriculture, providing you with the skills and knowledge needed to apply sustainable agriculture practices and play a part in global food security. Designed in consultation with the National Trust – one of the largest landowners in the UK – it gives you the opportunity to study on the University’s 200-hectare farm and rural estate, based at our Brackenhurst Campus.
This course has been designed to allow you to enter this exciting industry in a range of roles. You'll be able to use your expertise to either work in farming at a managerial level, or in the allied industries in roles such as a farm advisor or crop protection specialist. There will also be opportunities for careers for those specialising in sustainable production, environmental protection and agricultural conservation.
Placement opportunities Between year two and three you'll have the opportunity to take a placement year. Typical work experience takes place on farms, in agricultural research stations and in allied industries such as seed merchants, agricultural consultancies and advisory services.
