Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge is going back school at Cambridge University to further his studies. Kensington Palace announced the royal will be attending classes for 10 weeks next year.
The 31-year-old William will be a full-time student in the bespoke program in agricultural management, which is headed by the Cambridge Programme for Sustainability Leadership, starting next month.
According to Us Weekly, the Palace explained this will "help provide the Duke with an understanding of contemporary issues affecting agricultural business and rural communities in the United Kingdom."
He will be attending 18 to 20 hours of lectures a week while enrolled in the program and the university has even provided the new father with a dorm room if he needs to crash there.
A spokesperson noted he’s "very much looking forward to it,” The Mirror reports.
The Duke will still attend royal engagements during the course of the program, which runs until March. He will live in Cambridge for part of the time.
