UK Agriculture Courses

Introduction to Agriculture

Agriculture courses have grown in popularity over recent years, and in 2015 the UK government officially crowned it the fastest growing subject in the UK. A degree in agriculture at a UK university is no longer just for those only interested in farming, but also for those interested in biosciences, economics and supply chain management.

An agriculture degree will cover a wide range of modules including agriculture science, agribusiness, future trading and farm engineering. Studying agriculture at a UK university will give you a solid grounding in the issues that affect agriculture now and in the future, preparing you for employment or further study. Many agriculture campuses are also based across large plots of land and you will enjoy the benefits of putting theoretical teaching into practice out on university fields and farms.

Graduate Agriculture Careers and Salary

Agriculture is one of the UK’s fastest growing sectors and employment rates for graduates are extremely high. Roles are varied and include farm manager, animal nutritionist, land agent, soil scientist and supply chain management. Positions away from the practical application of agriculture are also available in research, technology and marketing.
