Agriculture degrees

Feeding a growing population

Our global population is growing fast, with agriculture being among the major industries that needs to change to support this rise.  The world needs skilled farmers, managers and advisers to drive it forwards. The role of our students, staff and agricultural partners is critical.

Our new £2 million Agri-Tech centre, opening in 2019, will help us to achieve our global mission. A hub for the latest farming technologies, it will connect the county’s farmers with the latest smart farming technologies to improve Gloucestershire’s productivity.

As a student, you’ll be exposed to these technologies too, and have opportunities to contribute to big agricultural business decisions as part of the project.

You'll benefit from your own 360-hectare classroom, gaining hands-on experience on our commercial farm, Home Farm. We have hectares of arable land, and industry-standard livestock facilities, as well as a unique Agricultural University Centre for our students.

You’ll develop your skills in line with the highest quality standards. Our produce is sold to Muller, Sainsbury’s and Glencore, so you’ll be ready to apply your skills across the supply chain.

Industry experience is embedded in every year of your degree – you’ll benefit from our partnerships with placement providers across the UK and further afield.

Whether you decide to work for a big agricultural brand, take your expertise home to your family farm, or set up your own business, you’ll be following in the footsteps of graduates who are investing in the future of farming.

All of this will give you the opportunity to develop practical skills so that you're ready to make a difference from day one of your career.
