With all teaching facilities and accommodation on-site, and students and tutors working and living together for the week, many diverse beekeeping topics can be discussed, practiced, and re-visited to ensure that students make real progress during the course.
The course begins on the Sunday afternoon with an introduction to the college facilities and locations, course content, and tutors, followed by a complementary pub meal to allow everyone to get to know each other. During the course, we will work through to 7pm (with meal breaks!) on some days.
It is for these reasons that we encourage all applicants to consider the fully residential option, even if they may be tempted to commute from home as day students.
This course is not suitable for novice beekeepers or those with fewer than three seasons of experience.
£760 pp fully residential student (tuition, accommodation, meals)
