Students will be able to learn more about individual courses on offer at Scotland’s Rural College (SRUC) during a series of virtual events next week.

In addition to a general overview about studying at SRUC’s Craibstone campus in Aberdeen – with the chance to speak to current students – prospective students can learn more about specific courses ranging from National Certificate to postgraduate degree level.

These include courses in animal care; wildlife and conservation management; and rural business management.

Open days are set to be held virtually by Scotland's Rural College to provide more information to students about courses including agriculture.

The campus overview and student panel event will take place on Thursday, February 25 at 4pm. The session on the environmental management course will be held later that day at 6.30pm.

Individual events highlighting the rural business management; agriculture; equine studies; wildlife and conservation management; animal care and veterinary nursing courses will take place throughout the day on Saturday, February 27.

The virtual open days, which will be hosted on Microsoft Teams, offer the chance to hear from lecturers and ask questions about the courses.

Marketing and student recruitment officer at SRUC Craibstone Bridgit Edmonstone said: “The coronavirus pandemic has meant we are unable to invite prospective students onto our campuses.

"However, we hope that by meeting some of the staff and students online, we are giving everyone the opportunity to find out more about what it’s like to study with us.”
