The Ruralia Institute is a creative learning, research and development environment that offers students a professionally oriented, multidisciplinary place of study. Our teaching is based on research and the practical application of theory.

Blended learning includes both contact classes and web-based studies. Teaching is planned and implemented together with local developers, sustainable food chain businesses and other parties.
