This course is supported by the National Organic Training Skillnet, part funding may be available for eligible students.
A Scottish-Irish education initiative is looking to recruit a new batch of students from Ireland to a unique distance learning course in organic farming run by Scotland’s Rural College (SRUC.) Staff from SRUC will join forces with the Irish-based National Organic Training Skillnet (NOTS) to host an information event in Co. Offaly aimed at those interested in studying at a distance for a postgraduate degree in organic farming.
SRUC has been running its distance learning Organic Farming MSc since 2002, delivering it in partnership with the Organic Research Centre since 2015. The online course brings together students, teachers and researchers from across the UK and Europe.
The course has a long history of attracting students from Ireland – mainly due to funding opportunities offered by NOTS – and more students are expected to sign up for the latest courses starting in September.
Dr Lou Ralph, SRUC Programme Leader, said: “Our organic farming course is unique. No other study programmes offer part time online distance learning in organic farming at postgraduate level".
