The AgriFoRwArdS CDT has launched a new recruitment round, which will run until 31st May 2022.


Applications are accepted in rounds. Please note, there will only be three rounds of recruitment for October 2022 entry, with recruitment closing in May 2022. Therefore, we strongly encourage those with predicted grades to apply, as well as those with confirmed results.

The AgriFoRwArdS CDT has a limited number of places for International Candidates each year. Due to these funder restrictions, we are currently unable to accept any more applications from International Candidates for October 2022 entry. Applications will only be accepted from applicants with confirmed UK residency.
