Good facilities. However the University is situated in the middle of the countryside and public transport is nonexistent, you definitively need a car.

With it being a very Agricultural Uni, it is great to be around so many people that share common interests you, it really helps in getting to know new people. The campus is really great being out in the open, and having buildings so close together (compared to a city Uni) is super convenient it is not too far from the nearest town either, which allows for good shopping and nights out. The university could really improve by reducing prices for entry at events and the drinks supplied at them.

Zoology with Entomology (with Placement) BSc (Hons)

University rating (4)

Harper Adams is undeniably a largely agriculture-focused university, but you can tell that it is in the process of trying to diversify its courses and do more. The student life is quieter than a typical university due to a relatively small number of societies and the lack of any large towns or cities nearby, but the campus is beautiful (with plenty of opportunities to go on walks) and may be much more appealing than a city campus to those that prefer rural environments. The staff (both teaching and otherwise) are all extremely knowledgeable, kind and friendly, and there is definitely a friendly atmosphere on campus. In my experience on the Zoology with Entomology course so far many modules are adapted from existing modules on other courses (with the first ever generation of zoology students being set to complete their course in 2022), but the lecturers still make the subjects engaging and link them to zoology wherever they can. Facilities such as the library and laboratories are all excellent.

The teaching is second to none. The lecturers are always on hand to answer any questions and truly care about your education.

Awesome facilities and its great studying with friends and like minded people. The student union is a great place for events however drinks can be over priced and the security is too strict - people get kicked out for silly reasons!

The fact we are a bit of of town makes the nightlife not as great with there also being one club. However, great overall feel- all my visitors say this uni is better than all the others such as Brookes, Cardiff, etc.

Harper is such a different uni to your big standard city unis. Everyone knows everyone it’s a super nice community feel, regardless of whether you have a farming background or not

Veterinary Nursing with Small Animal Rehabilitation (with Placement) BSc (Hons)

University rating (4)

Harper Adams is a lovely campus to be based on but is very rural. Lots of animals on site and great facilities for the nursing students especially with the newly built Vet building. Student union has varied from year to year, but having only my first year as a 'normal' year (without covid) I would say there is definitely room for improvement! Lacking variety of themes for Wednesday nights and over promising is something that has been regular over the past 4 years at Harper.
