Prince William will study agriculture in Cambridge

The second in line to the throne will be enrolling in a 10-week course in agricultural management at Cambridge University, Kensington Palace announced Monday.

Prince William is planning to attend Cambridge University in 2014. He’ll be studying agricultural management. This will see him undertake a series of seminars, lectures and meetings in a bid to understand the issues faced by farming communities across the United Kingdom."The course has been designed to help provide the Duke with an understanding of contemporary issues affecting agricultural business and rural communities in the United Kingdom," the Palace said.

He completed his geography degree in 2005 from the University of St. Andrews. Now, he embarks on another chapter in his education in order to prepare for the role of running the Duchy of Cornwall, the estate currently led by his father Prince Charles.

Interestingly, while the Prince takes on approximately 18 to 20 hours of schooling per week, the university has made a dorm room available if he feels the need to spend the night. According to a palace spokesman, Prince William is "very much looking forward to" his studies.
