Could you help feed a growing population while combatting climate change? Are you keen to gain the technical knowledge, qualifications and practical skills that employers want? Join our forward thinking agriculture department and learn about the latest cutting edge technology.
Whether it’s managing a farm, carrying out research and development, operating and maintaining hi-tech machinery or working in an allied industry such as livestock nutrition, crop agronomy, sales or working in retail, our agricultural courses will steer you towards a very rewarding career. Most of our students get jobs as soon as they’ve qualified – in fact there’s such high demand that we sometimes have a waiting list of farmers and companies wanting to recruit!
Although we’ve run agricultural courses for over 100 years, we’re right up to date with the technological advances within the industry. Apart from learning hands-on on our modern farm you can look forward to studying in our advanced agri-technology centre, which will offer world class facilities and training in precision farming including crop production systems.
You can be sure that your course will deliver exactly the right skills and knowledge you’ll need because we work closely with industry mentors who advise on course content. We’re unique because we can train you in the whole supply chain thanks to our industry standard Food Centre, with its specialist butchery department and licensed dairy processing halls and our relationships with major retailers.
