Land-Based Skills

The land-based and rural industries need the support of a knowledgeable and well-skilled workforce.

Their future sustainability and development relies on managers, researchers and practitioners, anticipating and responding to the challenges of the 21st century.

SRUC offers courses across a wide range of land-based disciplines and works with the Universities of Glasgow and Edinburgh as well as a number of other Universities and Research partners to provide taught and research opportunities, designed to enable you to maximise your future employment or research choices.

Our applied research activity is internationally recognised for its innovation and contribution to the land-based sector.
