Think global.

What makes agri-businesses succeed? What roles do innovation and entrepreneurship play for today’s modern farm?

The agri-food sector is an increasingly fast-paced and complex industry that faces the challenge of feeding a growing world with scarcer resources. New technology and innovations are changing how we grow our food and how we sell it to our consumers. Agri-business leaders need to think globally and can learn from others operating in different agricultural systems and contexts.

This winter school opportunity lets you see agriculture from an international perspective. Based at Nottingham, home of Robin Hood and the renowned Trent Bridge cricket ground, you’ll visit farms and research organisations to see firsthand the issues faced by British agriculture and the innovations driving the industry.

You’ll work with students from other universities to learn about agricultural management practices in Britain, and the external and internal influences on agri-businesses. You’ll investigate the role of entrepreneurship for success, and hear different perspectives on current political developments.

Experience the local sights in your leisure time, such as Nottingham’s vibrant city centre, Leicester’s famous “Golden Mile” of curry restaurants and Birmingham’s shopping paradise. Go for countryside walks in the rolling green fields near campus and enjoy the long evenings of a Northern Hemisphere summer.

This international school is available to students who have an interest in or are currently studying agriculture, animal science or related subjects.
