|Assessment||Report||To be submitted by Week 10 of Semester 1, Year 3.||100%|
(i) understand the relationship between farm and community;
(ii) have practical knowledge of the rural economy of an area of Britain remote from west Wales;
(iii) be able to appreciate the way in which these systems are integrated at the farm level.
The location of the field course will vary each year. According to locality, visits will take place over five days to farms, research stations, ESAs, agricultural museums etc. Evening seminar sessions will afford students the opportunity to consolidate information gained from the tour.
If in a particular year it is not feasible to run a field course, students will be asked to select a county or other area of comparable size, describe its salient geographical, social, cultural and economic features, visit farms or businesses related to farming, describe these and relate them to the area in which they are located.
