The program, consisting of seminars, lectures and meetings, will start in early January and end in mid-March. The course is described as being designed "to help with an understanding of contemporary issues affecting agricultural business and rural communities in the United Kingdom."

Prince William, who graduated with a geography degree from St. Andrews University, served more than seven-and-a-half years of full-time military service before leaving the Royal Armed Forces in September.

In July, the prince and his wife, Kate Middleton, welcomed their first child, Prince George.
