William Satchell

Qualification & subject:
Undergraduate BSc (Hons) Agriculture
Agronomist, Agrii

William studied BSc (Hons) Agriculture at Hartpury and now works for Agrii, one of the leading agronomy companies in the UK. He works alongside farmers to help them increase yields with the highest level of efficiency. It’s a hands-on job but it’s definitely backed up by science – which he learned at Hartpury.

William's Hartpury Experience

"The lecturers were the ones who really sold it for me. They’ve got years of industry experience and are always up to date with the latest goings on. All of them were keen to expose us to the industry, particularly through guest speakers, conferences and events. It was exactly what I was looking for.

It wasn’t until I was at Hartpury that I realised how many jobs there are in agriculture. The course gave me so many opportunities to develop and ultimately put me in contact with my employer."

Developing Industry Connections

"You don’t have to come from an agricultural background to work in the sector either – I didn’t. The lecturers at Hartpury supported me to follow my passion and now I’m doing something I enjoy.

The setup at Hartpury was perfect for my interests. Thanks to the availability of the farm on site, I was able to take what I learnt in the classroom and walk out into the field to put it into practice."
