We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Students studying at Writtle University College will have access to the Postharvest Unit which undertakes research and trials in conjunction with commercial companies.
This provides the opportunity to study a range of crops and investigate at an advanced level the techniques used for postharvest handling and the underlying mechanisms which determine and limit these techniques.
Students will also examine crop growing using resources at the University and through visits to growers, so they 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 research and

This course is designed for those who already have an interest in postharvest technology as well as those who wish to develop or update their existing knowledge.
Applicants are normally graduates in agriculture, horticulture, engineering, biosciences, geography, business and economics, or will have extensive relevant industrial experience. All share a common interest in how to reduce produce loss and the application of technologies to achieve this.
I chose to study at Writtle University College as it is one of the best colleges for horticulture and other related courses in the UK. I studied for my BSc. Horticulture in my country (Iran) in 1994 and have worked for more than 10 years in different fields related to crop production. From my experience it has been very helpful to have previously obtained work experience related to my chosen subject area – this helped me immensely during research stages in my postgraduate study.
International students studying in the UK will have come from different education systems. Fortunately Writtle University College supports international students excellently and for those who need to improve their English language skills and knowledge there are teachers and advisors to help solve any problems.
I have found all levels of teaching at Writtle to be of an excellent standard and have been able to fully engage in the institution. Following on from the completion of my course new aspects of Horticulture have opened up to me. I have already been offered a number of opportunities to work within different companies and research centres.
