To embark on distance learning you will need to register as a student. Before you do so it is worth looking at the entry criteria and language requirements below:

Entry Criteria

To be accepted as a postgraduate student, candidates must hold: 

  • at least a second class honours degree in agricultural /biological science or a closely related discipline OR 
  • have at least two years relevant experience. Applications from mature candidates with relevant experience will be considered on a case by case basis.

English Language Requirements

International and EU applicants will need to show evidence of a sufficient knowledge of English. This must be proved before you begin your course. If you have not achieved the required level before sending us your application, your formal offer for postgraduate study will include a condition stating that you need to achieve this level before the start of your course. The level required is IELTS 6.5. or equivalent. If you do not reach the required level of proficiency, it will not be possible to admit you onto the course. Please see full guidance. Please also note that as this course is via distance learning it does not enable you to receive a CAS number or assistance with a visa.
