A Kensington Palace spokesman said that Prince William is "very much looking forward to" becoming a full-time student again. A statement said:
The executive education programme of seminars, lectures and meetings will draw on the strengths of academics across the university. It will start in early January and run until mid-March.
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.
