SRUC offers several courses that will enable students with a variety of academic and working experiences gain a fast-track understanding of the key technical production, marketing and management aspects of organic farming and food.

This enables students to build on their existing expertise and aspirations, and to give them enhanced career opportunities as practitioners, promoters and facilitators within the sector.

The organic sector is expected to continue its expansion to meet national targets and European CAP policy development.

The sector requires high level graduates that have the technical and management skills to meet this expansion.

Our organic courses are popular - and you can learn about it straight from our students: Alison Goldberger, who is distance learning a post graduate in Organic Farming from Austria - where she runs an organic arable and pig farm - and Stephen Meredith, who was awarded the SRUC Trust Prize for best MSc student in Organic Farming and is continuing to put what he learnt to good use in his professional life.
