How is the BSc (Hons) in Land Management in Agriculture structured?
The BSc (Hons) in Land Management in Agriculture is a one year add-on course that prepares students for a professional career or postgraduate education in Agriculture. The year consists of two semesters each comprising 6 modules. Some of the modules will be common to all students while other modules will be specific to their stream or discipline.
A research project will be carried out by each student throughout the two semesters of the add-on year. This will enable students to learn the rudiments of carrying out research and how to write up a scientific report. It may also help them to determine whether they would like to obtain a postgraduate qualification (Masters or PhD) after they graduate.
