The Organic food and farming sector within Europe is continuing to develop in response to governmental Action Plans and CAP policy development. The organic sector requires highly trained individuals to work as certification officers, advisers, agronomists, farmers, farm managers and livestock specialists. SRUC offers this programme to enable students with a variety of academic and working experiences to gain a fast-track understanding of the key technical production, marketing and management aspects of organic farming and food.
You can exit after 1 year with a PgCert or after 2 years with PgDip Organic Farming.
A degree relevant to the sector, or the candidate's assessed ability to benefit from the studies, such as extensive relevant work experience will be considered.
