RBG Kew welcomes students from undergraduate programmes from the UK and further afield, teaching them about the importance of Kew’s scientific work.

Educational visits

As well as offering a number of MSc courses, Kew also welcomes students studying on undergraduate programmes in the UK and further afield.
