    Hi

    I'm not really sure if I'm classed as a mature student at 20 but I was wondering if anyone has applied to do a foundation year at Harper?

    I've applied for the animal management and welfare extended foundation degree.

    I've got 9 A*-C grades, I was wondering how difficult Harper is to get in if anyone has any idea? Or any information at all? Haha

    PS. I've also go AS Levels. I couldn't continue onto A Levels for personal reasons.

    Hello! I've applied to do that too! I've also applied for the Veterinary Nursing Ext Fnd Degree I've just turned 21 so I'm not sure whether I can call myself a mature student? I'd feel old... Haha. I cant tell you how difficult it is to get into but I assume they look at work experience within the field?

    Haha!
    I'm so glad there's someone in the same position as me! I thought about applying for nursing but wanted to keep my options open. I should of applied for both, silly me! Haha

    I've only just sent mine off and I'm already going crazy! Have you had an interview or anything?

    I'm relieved too believe me! Haha. I originally studied art at Sixth Form and college, then rethought my options when I was 19. So I'm 21 now and dead-set on what I want to do! It's good though too because I've had the time to think really carefully about university and my career

    I sent mine off on the 2nd of this month so I'm still waiting like you! Have you applied anywhere else? I only applied for the 2 courses, both at Harper

    I took my AS Levels and got accepted to do Sociology at university, but I left sixth form to look after my mom who was ill at the time. Similarly to you, I rethought my options and realised I had no interest in Sociology and the only thing I'm passionate about is animal care! Ha!
    I've applied to two colleges which offer a foundation year, Askham Bryan and York. I REALLY want to get into Harper though!

    Ah right, thats cool Did you go to the Harper open day? I went, and instantly fell in love!
    I did sociology at 6th Form but never really considered it something I'd do at uni

    Ooh, Askham Bryan is linked with Harper Adams anyway isnt it?

    I just wish they'd tell me and get it over with, this is the third time I've applied to uni and the waiting gets worse and worse each time! haha

    Its more of a community than a campus, so if you like the whole countryside, middle of nowhere locations and a small community-like group of students then you'll definitely like it!

    I reaaaaally want to get in!

    Oh nice, so now youre waiting to see if you have an interview date I'm guessing?

    I sent mine off just over a week ago so I'm not expecting to hear anything for a while

    What made you choose Harper then?

    I wouldnt worry! Is it the first time you've applied to uni?

    I have a friend who lectures there and she encouraged me to apply because she knows I want to do veterinary nursing and she said it would be a good idea to go! I went to the open day and I fell in love. Its GORGEOUS. just where it is, what it's like etc. I could see myself there!

    Id LOVE to live on a farm haha, Ive been unlucky getting equine and farm animal experience but hopefully my experience in other areas will over shadow it!
