Agriculture and Food

The programme delivers training that crosses traditional skill disciplines within the fields of food and agricultural science, and encourages critical reflection upon existing scientific literature and current state-of-the-art research findings within an original industry-based research project.

Entry requirements

Candidates will require an undergraduate degree in a relevant field, typically Science or engineering. This should be a 2nd Class Honours degree as a minimum although relevant experience and recent study may be taken into account for candidates without that minimum. In the case of the MSc, such candidates would typically be offered places on the PG Cert or PG Dip in the 1st instance with progression onto the MSc dependent on achieving the required standard. Candidates on the MRes may transfer to the Professional Doctorate with approval from the relevant examination board.
