 About this EVENT

This event gives prospective students for the new BSc in Regenerative Food and Farming the opportunity to speak directly with the Programme Lead about joining the programme ahead of the preferred application deadline on 1 May.

The BSc in Regenerative Food and Farming is the first undergraduate course at Dartington for 10 years. Students will explore leading-edge alternatives to mainstream agricultural practices and food systems through a programme of integrated experiential learning, study alongside expert faculty and practitioners, meaningful work placement, and guided independent projects.

This event will take place on Zoom, and will involve a short presentation from Caroline, followed by plenty of time for you to put your questions to her about the course, the application process and what life is like studying at Schumacher College.
