The veterinary nursing lecturers and facilities are great, so helpful and responsive. The campus and area is nice, although somewhat rural. The students Union nights are okay, but they have put prices up, and are very focused on the agricultural students.

University rating (5)

The campus is relatively small making it that everyone in your year knows everyone. Everyone is lovely to be around. Everyone on campus is happy and the people at the University always want to help and make sure the experience is as best as possible. All the lecturers on my course are so enthusiastic to teach and make every lecture and tutorial is as interesting as possible.

Veterinary Nursing with Companion Animal Behaviour (with Placement) BSc (Hons)

University rating (5)

Social life is amazing. Always something going on and the student nights are fun. The library is fantastic and really is resourceful. Definitely better now it's been made 24 hour! Improved by listening to the students concerns and ideas, rather than pushing things to the side

the best part is the community feel, with both students and lecturers, teaching and support staff go out of their way to help always. what could be improved is the extracurricular activities past sports there isn't much going on compared to other unis.

Veterinary Bioscience (with Placement) BSc (Hons)

University rating (3)

Harper Adams, as it's an agriculturally focused University, is ideal for anyone wanting to go into the livestock, farming, or animal health industries; having fully functioning dairy, beef, pig, and poultry units. There is also a compulsory placement in the 3rd year, giving experience in industry. However, the campus (teaching buildings) is smaller than other city campuses might be and can be isolating if you don't drive; especially first year.

Harper has such an amazing location with beautiful countryside all around but not too far from the large town of Telford, making it convenient. The lecturers all know what they are talking about and can make boring topics very interesting to learn. There is a lack of diversity at Harper due to the courses it offers, and some of the students are very much closed off to any other views which has had some tension (LGBT History Month in February had some serious incidents due to this lack of acceptance by students) however there has been a push to change this. The staff don’t share the view of these students. Harper itself is a great uni and I’ve enjoyed studying here. The main issue is with some of the students that study here. I wouldn’t discount Harper as an option however I would be prepared for some “interesting” characters.

It is great how everything is on campus such as accommodation, teaching buildings etc. There are lots of opportunities to get involved with activities as well as work experience. The university has a great student union for all students to be able to get involved with as well as experience social nights. However, it is a bit challenging to get around the town due to there not being regular bus routes or walking paths to accept the town centre for individuals who do not drive. There could be more social activities for student to be able to attend, specifically on weekends such as tourist attractions etc. More shops on campus would make a great impact onto the university, meaning that there are more places and things to do whilst on campus as well as individuals who find it difficult to get around the area.

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

University rating (4)

Very pretty campus in the countryside with great science and veterinary facilities and amazing lecturers. Worst sides would be the lack of culture and the fact its very agriculture focused, so there are lots of clashes with students and animal beliefs.
