Why study Agriculture at Hartpury University Centre?
At Hartpury University Centre, you’ll be given the knowledge, practical skills and work experience to stand out from the crowd when you graduate, whether you go into farming or a range of other careers in the land-based industries.
We’ll help you to understand and evaluate scientific thinking and practices and the increasing role of technology within agriculture plus we’ll give you the support and skills you need to develop new ideas and research that place you firmly at the forefront of your chosen field.
Honing your practical skills on our 360-hectare campus, you’ll become confident and competent in a range of practices on the college farm and you’ll be taught by specialists with many years of experience in small teaching groups.
Our extensive on-site and off-site commercial activities, coupled with our contacts and partnerships within the industry locally, nationally and internationally, also provide students with plenty of opportunities to get hands-on experience and learn within real-world environments. You'll also have the opportunity to develop groundbreaking research while working and develop a network of contacts in the UK and beyond.
Our graduates have gone on to become farm and estate managers, agronomists, agricultural advisors and sales managers and lecturers, while others have started up their own businesses or supported their family farm to diversify successfully.
