SRUC’s online postgraduate programme in Organic Farming

1st May 2021

SRUC has over two decades experience of postgraduate teaching in Organic Farming. The programme was established in 2000 and converted to its current online distance learning format in 2002.

SRUC delivers sector-leading research, education and consultancy and students on the Organic Farming programme have the benefit of teaching input from all three of these complementary strands, alongside input from other sector experts.

Since 2015 this has included a formal teaching partnership with the Organic Research Centre.


The Organic Farming programme uses part time online distance learning which (in non-Covid times) is blended with residential study weekends and study tours and allows students to gain a PGDip qualification in 2 years or an MSc in 3 years, as well as the option to study single modules as CPD.
