Addysg a Dysgu

What will I learn?

In the first year you will be introduced to the technologies that are increasingly being developed for and adopted by the agricultural industry. You will investigate the factors that influence land use and explore the primary resources required to operate a rural business. You will gain useful business management skills, including the preparation of farm budgets and the analysis of commodity markets.

In the second year you will study the impact of agriculture and food supply systems on the environment. You will examine British livestock industries, crop production systems and strategies, and will learn how to analyse, budget and appraise a farm business.

In the third year you will examine business planning techniques and will learn how to construct fully detailed farm business plans. You will also look at recent developments in systems of crop production, modern plant breeding strategies and the use of crops for bioenergy production, alongside animal production systems and the environmental impacts of different agricultural systems. A week-long field course involving visits to farms, rural businesses and organizations involved in the regulation and management of the countryside will enable you to see the practical business applications of your theoretical and academic learning.

In your fourth and final year, you will develop your knowledge and understanding further by examining the global challenges facing the agricultural industry and the role of research in addressing these challenges. You will undertake a research project that will allow you to explore your chosen subject in depth and in conjunction with research active staff. You will also be able to choose from a range of modules such as livestock nutrition, production and grassland science that will provide you with masters level understanding, allowing you to become a subject specialist and giving you a competitive edge in the graduate job market.

How will I be taught?

This course will be delivered through a programme of lectures, seminars, workshops and field visits. Some aspects of the course will rely on student-centred e-learning, supported by computer workshops. You will have numerous opportunities to apply your academic learning in practical activities and workshops. You will also look at the connection between research and analysis and their real-world outputs in the form of improved technology, crops and animal welfare.

You will be assessed through numerous methods including essays, practical exercises, oral presentations, worksheets, reports, statistical exercises, wikis, reflective diaries, business plans, literature reviews, magazine articles, field notebooks and exams. A compulsory dissertation in your final year will allow you to perform in-depth research under the guidance of a supervisor. Your project may be based on laboratory experiments or fieldwork exercises, comprise a computer modelling exercise, or involve a critical review of published scientific literature.

The university's vibrant culture of academic and vocational learning will support you in your agricultural training and encourage you to take advantage of the many opportunities within the department and the university to develop your theoretical and practical expertise so that, upon graduation, you are perfectly positioned for the next stage of your career.

You will be assigned a personal tutor throughout your degree course, who will help you with any problems or queries, whether these are academic-related or personal issues. You should feel free to contact them at any time for help and advice.
