What's it like to do a PhD in Agricultural Sciences?
With such a vast scope, a PhD in Agricultural Sciences has the potential to make a significant impact on the world. You could be developing new pesticides and herbicides to help the agriculture industry, researching the impact of climate change on food security, or using big data to improve food production and waste management.
In addition to the main research aim of your programme, you'll also likely be asked to complete doctoral training modules, which will help you develop key transferable skills such as research methodology, presentation of your research, and professional and life skills.
You'll usually be required to submit an 80,000-word thesis to be defended during your viva examination, which is part of your doctoral training.
