You don’t need to have an agricultural background; you simply need the passion and drive to work within a fast-changing industry and make that difference.
In this Applied Agriculture course from Hartpury University 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.
The extensive industry experience of lecturers, an on-campus commercial farm that supplies Muller, Sainsbury's and Glencore, as well as our £2 million Agri-Tech Centre, will prepare you to make that positive impact on the future.
You'll have access to 400 hectares of commercial farmland, real-world business briefs and industry placements. You’ll benefit from up to 980 hours working and applying your knowledge as part of your degree. This includes a supported work placement during each year of study that counts as credits towards your degree meaning you'll graduate ready for employment.
Industry opportunities on this course are diverse, to ensure you develop the skills, experience and connections needed for your graduate career. Many of our students get their graduate roles with their work placement employers
Work placements and experience
These form part of core and optional modules, alongside an optional integrated placement year. We’ll support you to find a placement within a sector of the industry to match your interests and career goals. Placements can be paid or unpaid, depending on the position.
