Scotland's Rural College

Scotland’s Rural College – winner of the Queen’s Anniversary Prize 2017 – supports innovation and sustainable development in the rural sector. SRUC is one of the UK’s leading agriculturally-focused higher education institutions, offering a unique blend of research, education and consultancy.

Students can study at all levels – from access courses and vocational studies, through undergraduate programmes covering HNC, HND and undergraduate degree courses, to taught postgraduate programmes and PhDs.

In August 2019, SRUC announced that it is seeking degree awarding powers and university status to create a new type of University for Scotland. This new institution focussed on supporting the rural economy through research, consultancy and upskilling the current working population as well as shaping the minds of the future.
