The IBERS Distance Learning (IBERS DL) programme, which focuses on agricultural production, has been successfully delivering training to agricultural professionals since 2012. Our regularly updated postgraduate
programme reflects the research strengths the university: animal-plant-microbe-soil interactions, sustainability and efficiency, as well as bringing you the latest thinking from the global research community.

The last independent review of research quality (the Research Excellence Framework) looked at IBERS’ and our strategic partner’s (Bangor University) research jointly and rated 78% of research in the areas of Agriculture, Veterinary and Food Science as ‘world-leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’. This programme capitalises on this strength. Our aim is to provide a high-level conduit between current research and decision makers within bio-based businesses, which encompasses all aspects of the food and biotechnology pipelines.
