Education and training

Education and training

Our work in education and training includes a Masters of Advanced Studies course in Integrated Crop Management, student internships and graduate student training. Read more about our work in English below or in French.

The Masters of Advanced Studies in Integrated Crop Management, jointly coordinated by CABI and the University of Neuchâtel, aims to help address today’s critical agricultural and environmental challenges by offering a unique higher education programme.

The course gives international students the opportunity to learn about sound crop management principles and to explore solutions that can be incorporated into practice and policy back home.

Around 100 PhD, MSc and Diploma students have carried out the practical aspects of their university coursework at CABI’s Swiss centre. We’ve welcomed students from Switzerland, Belgium, France, Germany, the Netherlands, UK, Turkey, Sri Lanka, China, New Zealand, Canada and USA. Some of the students are self-funded while others are funded via CABI projects or by their universities.

Around 15 undergraduate and graduate students take internships at CABI’s Swiss centre each year where they work mostly on biological control projects run by CABI in collaboration with national and international partners. We are currently offering BSc or MSc students in biology, ecology, agronomy and other related fields an opportunity to gain experience in biological weed and insect control.
