Our students learn theory behind agriculture before putting it straight into practice on our on-site commercial farm. It’s the perfect place to get hands-on and familiarise yourself with the latest farming technologies and industry practices. You'll be exposed to data-driven smart farming and real business innovations in our Agri-Tech Centre and Tech Box Park; the first phases in our 10-year Digital Innovation Farm vision – read more on page 51. There’s also designated machinery workshops, an advanced new dairy parlour and 400 hectares of arable land for students to gain experience. Depending on your course, we’ll teach you about livestock, agronomy, estate and farm management, and engineering. Our commercial farm and dedicated learning centre provide the ideal teaching environment. Students on all courses will have access to industry-level equipment, and teaching. We offer exciting work experience opportunities both on and off site, as well as locally and nationally, to help you develop your knowledge and practical skills ready for future study or employment. Previous students have completed work experience at farms across the country, in engineering workshops and as gamekeepers. We have excellent industry links, giving our students the chance to gain first-hand experience through trips and by listening to talks from agriculture experts. Our lecturers have worked as farm managers, engineers, and gamekeepers – so you’ll benefit from their considerable experience in the commercial industry. Our students progress on to university-level study, go on to work for leading agricultural companies and take new skills back to their own farms.
