In addition, and new for 2017, the School is also offering an online PGCert in Sustainable Livestock Production. The programme consists of four distance learning modules and CPD opportunities, via a flexible, part time distance learning programme. The modules address the key issues created by the world's continued population growth and increases in income that have resulted in a dramatic rise in demand for livestock and animal products (meat, milk and eggs), with global projections forecasting an increased demand to 2030 and beyond.
Each module can be completed independently, but all four modules are required to secure the Postgraduate Certificate. For further information visit: http://www.reading.ac.uk/apd/pg-taught/Programmes/apd-pgt-PCSLP.aspx
