One of the best agricultural universities in the UK - you'll get so much practical experience here. The staff really care for you, and there are great opportunities to be had. The countryside surrounding the university is so beautiful, with Ironbridge Gorge a particularly gobsmacking highlight. There’s a few pubs in Newport itself, but not much else although the SU bar is great fun and you are a cheap taxi away from Birmingham or Wolverhampton, which are amazing cities to go out in.

    INCREDIBLE. When I first looked around Harper they talked about the 'harper spirit'. This is a real thing! Everyone at harper will help eachother out and there is a real feeling of 'togetherness'. I honestly cannot reccomend Harper Adams enough.
