Scotland’s Rural College
SRUC (Scotland’s Rural College) is a higher education institute dedicated to producing specialist research, delivering high quality education, providing comprehensive consultancy services and first-class veterinary services in the rural sector within the UK and beyond. SRUC is unique in Scotland and one of the largest organisations of its kind in Europe. It leads the way in innovation and sustainable development in the agriculture and rural sectors at local, national and international levels. One important cornerstone of SRUC is its internationally respected research and teaching which addresses major agricultural challenges such as meeting increasing global demand for food, addressing climate change and utilizing dwindling natural resources. Drawing on this foundation of research, much of SRUC’s emphasis is on knowledge transfer and exchange which is delivered through the integration of farm business, veterinary consultancy, education and research over 50 different regional centres across Scotland and Northern England
