Agriculture diplomas

Driving the future of farming

Benefit from your own 360-hectare classroom and access to the latest farming technologies as part of our new Agri-Tech Centre. With modern lecture rooms located in the heart of our commercial farm, you’ll be perfectly placed to immerse yourself in agriculture.

Our specialist staff will support you to develop your skills across the entire supply chain – whether working with livestock, crops, technology, machinery or game. Many are from farming backgrounds themselves and involved animal science and welfare projects too.

As part of our new £2million Agri-Tech Centre, you'll be exposed to the latest smart farming technologies and Gloucestershire's farming professionals collaborating on projects designed to boost the county's agricultural productivity.

You'll undertake an industry placement as part of your diploma course, with opportunities to get involved with voluntary work alongside your studies to build your skills portfolio. With regular trips to local farms, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to gain experience and apply your skills in a real-life setting.

We’re proud to be Red Tractor Farm Assured for our dairy, beef, and lamb; we also work with big retailers such as Sainsbury’s and Glencore.  As a Hartpury Agriculture student, you can be confident that you’ll develop your knowledge in line with the highest quality and welfare standards.

You can choose from four different agriculture streams and levels across our diploma courses – Agriculture, Farm Mechanisation, Countryside Management (Gamekeeping) and Agriculture Engineering Land-based Technology - as well as an agricultural apprenticeship.
