Prospective students will be able to learn more about courses on offer at the SRUC, which has campuses around the country, during a series of virtual events next week.

In addition to a general overview , those contemplating entering on one of the many courses available will have the chance to speak to current students and an opportunity to learn more about specific courses ranging from Access Skills for Work and Modern Apprenticeships through to postgraduate degree level.

Courses available include Wildlife and Conservation Management, Agriculture, Bioscience, and Rural Business Management at SRUC’s campuses in Aberdeen, Fife, Edinburgh, West Lothian, Ayr and Dumfries – as well as at the Glasgow Botanic Gardens.

The events, which will be hosted on Microsoft Teams, will run from Sunday 21 to Saturday 27 February and offer school leavers and mature students the chance to hear from lecturers and ask questions about the courses.

Marketing and Student Recruitment Manager Hannah Mellow 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.”
