Our specialist resources are also substantial. SRUC has farms, advisory offices and veterinary services located across Scotland. Our science courses are supported by well-equipped teaching laboratories, and our strong research base means that students have access to highly specialised laboratories and equipment.

What our students say

“Unlike many institutions you never feel like ‘just a number’ at SRUC (formerly SAC). It offers a very personal education, and the lectures were genuinely an enjoyable experience. I still have regular contact with many of the staff who taught me and the students I studied with. You never really leave SRUC and you never really want to.”

Chris Mair, BSc (Hons) Rural Resource Management
