Early next year, Prince William plans to return to school and complete a 10-week program in agricultural management at the university, Kensington Palace announced Monday

The university’s Cambridge Programme for Sustainability Leadership coordinated the three-month program of seminars, lectures and meetings. The course will start in early January and run until March.

Prince William left the British armed forces in September after serving more than seven and a half years in full-time military service. The new dad spent his final years of military service as a search-and-rescue helicopter pilot for England’s Royal Air Force.
