Course content

This unique course provides a diverse blend of options in communication skills, science and business. To deliver this range of skills two Aberystwyth University departments (IBERS and Aberystwyth Business School) have partnered with Menter a Busnes, a Welsh company specialising in agricultural knowledge exchange, who provide practical workshop sessions. 

To gain a PGCert you will need to successfully complete three modules. At least one of these must be chosen from the technical modules and one must be from the KE and Business modules, your third module can come from either group. All of the technical modules and Farm Business Management are entirely on-line. The KE modules provide a mixture of on-line and workshop based learning.

Which modules can I choose and when can I start?

Choose one module from each group and a third from either group.

 Group 1 - KE and Business Modules

The Business School modules comprise workshop-based learning focussed on improving your interactions with farmers and farming groups for effective knowledge exchange. These modules are delivered in association with Menter a Busnes through two, two-day workshops and a final one-day to allow you to develop and practice your KE skills. These are supplemented by on-line assignment work.
