optional credits (module 2) and
pathway-specific credits (module 3A/3B). Module 1A/1B comprises subjects covering the general aspects of the course content. Module 2 contains a series of optional subjects. Module 3A/3B contains subjects specific to the pathway chosen by each student (research or professional): students who choose the research pathway must complete 20 research credits; students who choose the professional pathway must complete 10 credits corresponding to an external placement and 10 credits corresponding to the final project.
Students should discuss their choice of subjects and pathway with the tutor at the time of enrolment.
The masterís degree in Environmental Agrobiology uses a blended learning approach and includes specific subjects belonging to research and professional pathways. Subjects combine a variety of learning activities, which may include face-to-face lectures, practical laboratory sessions, fieldwork, computer sessions, problem-solving sessions, seminars, talks and directed learning activities supervised by a tutor.
Students may choose to complete the 60 credits required to obtain the masterís degree in one academic year or over a longer period, although they must enrol for at least 20 credits per academic year. Places on the masterís degree course are offered annually.
