Our world population is growing fast, with agriculture being among the major industries that’s changing to support this rise. There’s never been a more exciting time to join this global sector, with exciting and diverse career opportunities ahead. 

We're on a mission to develop a talent base of innovative agricultural leaders to address the future demand for skills in the agri-sector. You don’t need to have an agricultural background, you simply need the passion, drive and expertise to make that difference.

You'll learn how to build a productive, resilient and sustainable industry - whether as a farm manager, agronomist, economist, policymaker, researcher, scientist or consultant – career opportunities are diverse.

We place the real world at the heart of our agricultural degrees. Extensive industry experience, an on-campus commercial farm that works with Muller, Sainsbury's and Glencore, as well as a £2 million agricultural technology centre (Agri-Tech) will prepare you to make a positive impact to the future.

Industry experience

You'll spend up to 980 hours working in industry as part of your degree, as well as the option to take an integrated placement year. Students work with businesses such as Foyle Food Group, Agrii and NFU, and internationally in New Zealand, Uganda and the USA.

Real-world learning

You'll have access to 400 hectares of commercial farmland at Hartpury, offering plenty of opportunities to get hands on. This, alongside real-world business briefs and industry placements means you'll graduate ready for employment.

Business and enterprise 

Our curriculum is informed by industry, with business management embedded throughout. This makes our students cutting edge, providing unparalleled learning experiences, and ensuring they make the best connections out there.

Science and innovation

You’ll have access to precision technologies and data from our award-winning farm and Agri-Tech Centre, an industry hub for the latest livestock technologies. This means you'll address the world's most pressing issues.
