Students studying at Writtle University College will have access to the Research glasshouse, farms and the postharvest unit which undertakes research and trials in conjunction with commercial companies.

This provides the opportunity to study a range of crops relevant to the chosen area of horticulture or agriculture.

Students will examine crop growing using resources at the University and through visits to growers and post harvest facilities; they will develop an understanding of the supply chain from the field through to sale. Together with visiting speakers from industry, this develops students' awareness of the latest trends and research in industry.

The teaching staff have developed close links with industry on a worldwide basis and the research and consultancy work is used to underpin the curriculum.

Delivery and Assessment

Delivery is through a combination of lectures, practical, formative and summative coursework, tutor and student led tutorials, case studies and group work, including seminars and presentations.

It is developed through a series of visits to commercial/industrial and research establishments and through dissertation-related studies. Appropriate knowledge and understanding is enhanced if students opt to undertake their dissertation work in an industrial situation. Students who undertake their dissertations outside the UK, will also gather a measure of this enhanced experience. 

Knowledge and understanding is assessed using a combination of examination (seen and unseen), assessed coursework (lab reports, projects, case studies, presentations) and problem-based learning scenarios which include interpretative exercises.

Career Prospects

On successful completion of the course graduates possess the knowledge to gain employment with crop producers and in management positions with major import/export organisations.

There are also opportunities to undertake further research.
