There are many reasons to undertake postgraduate study: whether to continue work on a subject area about which you have become passionate, to embark on a change of direction, or to further your career opportunities.

SRUC offers unique opportunities for postgraduate study. Our unbeatable links with industry, along with our own highly-respected consultancy and research divisions, gives us knowledge, expertise and facilities befitting a national institution.

SRUC is Scotland's specialist higher education institution for courses that relate to the existing and emerging land-based industries and pursuits, applied food, plant and animal sciences and sustainable land-use.

In addition to its role in education, we have an innovative and leading research and development programme and run an international advisory and consultancy service.

This all means that as a student at SRUC you are taught by a team of staff including lecturers, researchers, advisers and consultants. They will provide up-to-the-minute information and insight into the commercial world beyond the College environment.

We believe no other education institution can offer this combination of expertise and experience. All of our courses aim to provide you with the necessary science, business, research and personal knowledge and skills for your future success.
