Why Harper Adams?

Harper Adams is the university for food production, animal health and sustainable living environments – with a mission to advance knowledge, inspire and equip learners to deliver real change for our living planet.

Our students see theory in action, are taught literally in the field, carry out experiments, conduct field trials, and then analyse their own samples in our ever-expanding laboratory complex, within a vibrant research and teaching environment – and all without leaving the campus.

Set on a 494-hectare farm, our Harper campus is home to the cutting-edge; such as our Agricultural Engineering Innovation Centre, where the future of farming is being pioneered with agricultural robots; the Elizabeth Creak Science Laboratories and a new robotic dairy – to name but a few. All our students have access to this technology and we wholeheartedly encourage exploration and research throughout your degree.

Speaking of research, Harper Adams is a recognised centre of research excellence with the 2021 Government Research Excellence Framework rating 60 per cent of the university’s research as “world leading” or “internationally excellent” – an almost ten per cent increase since our previous submission.
