Welcome to IBERS. We are keen to establish and maintain links with schools, colleges and young farmers groups across Wales and the UK.

We can offer visits to your institution from members of our academic staff, who can deliver talks on the university, IBERS and what degree schemes we offer at undergraduate and postgraduate level. We are also able to talk about the research IBERS undertakes and what it can be like for students to study in higher education.

If you wish, you can also visit the university to view our facilities and talk to staff who can deliver talks and small practical sessions.

If you wish to get in contact with IBERS about what we can offer you and your students then please contact Emma Ivinson, email: eci@aber.ac.uk phone number: (01970) 62 2075

Fascination of Plants Day

The fourth international "Fascination of Plants Day" 2017 takes place on the 18th May. The goal of this observance is to get as many people as possible around the world fascinated by plants and enthused about the importance of plant science for agriculture, in sustainability producing food, as well as for horticulture, forestry, and all of the non-food products such as paper, timber, chemicals, energy, and pharmaceuticals. The role of plants in environmental conservation will also be a key message.

To contribute to this initiative IBERS, Aberystwyth University will be taking part in the Ceredigion Garden and Craft Festival in Aberaeron on the 28th/29th May 2017.
