Course summary

Harper Adams has specialised in providing higher education in agriculture for more than a century, producing highly capable graduates to drive this large and dynamic industry forward through an exciting range of career opportunities. If you are in any doubt as to the importance of the industry in the UK, remember about 75 per cent of the land area is used for agriculture! There are around 400 students here studying agriculture at degree or foundation degree level, either as a single subject or combining it with a related area such as engineering, animals or business. Agriculture students – or ‘agrics’ as they like to be known – aren’t just farmers’ sons and daughters. They come from many different locations and backgrounds, both urban and rural, and their reasons for studying agriculture are as diverse as their career plans.

Choosing Agriculture (with Year 0) will lead to either a foundation or bachelor's degree in Agriculture, depending on how well you perform during your first year. Please note that you will need to have some relevant work experience.

Assessment

Assessment is via a balance of coursework and examination. Weighting is typically 50 percent course work and 50 percent exams, although certain modules, such as Academic Skills are 100 percent coursework assessed. Environmental Engineering Science and Mathematics Applications and Statistics are assessed 100 percent by examination.
