Our teaching approach aims to connect theoretical understanding and practical experience. We use interactive learning to encourage students to develop a coherent understanding of current trends and debate.
You'll learn through a variety of teaching methods, including innovative lectures, guest speakers, critical reading tutorials, independent assignments, group work, and field trips – all drawing on student participation.
Recent students have visited the Centre for Dairy Research, the National Fruit Collection, and the world's oldest agriculture research station: Rothamsted. These opportunities are a vital part of your learning experience, enabling you to see a range of operations, enhance your understanding, and provide greater insight into how world-leading research is conducted.
