Scotland's Rural College

10th October 2022

Scotland’s Rural College exists to deliver comprehensive skills, education and business support for Scotland’s land-based industries, founded on world class and sector-leading research, education and consultancy. The integration of these three complementary ‘knowledge exchange’ services will be of significant value to all with an interest in land-based activities – be they learners, businesses, communities or policy-makers.

The four original college partners  – Barony, Elmwood and Oatridge and SAC –  have combined more than a century of experience in research, education and rural business consultancy to establish SRUC.  Scotland’s Rural College is unique in Scotland and the largest organisation of its kind in Europe.
