Kew staff organise study visits for undergraduate and postgraduate students, whose studies relate to the work of the science teams or to the behind the scenes plant collections.
Kew specialists discuss plant conservation case-studies with Biodiversity and Conservation MSc students from the University of Exeter.

Enquiries about group study visits
Kew welcomes enquiries from other universities about potential study visits linked to Kew’s areas of expertise.
