Since it was founded in 1901, Harper has been designed to meet this challenge. Set on a 550 hectare farm, we are the leading specialist university tackling the future development of our planet's food production, processing, animal sciences, engineering, land management and sustainable business.

Part Farm - There are 550 hectares of farm land to work with here, so testing your theory in the field is more than a possibility. It's a reality.

Part Invention Hub - From crop-spraying drones to life-saving technology, we don't just dream up new ideas and innovations here. We build them.

Part Think Tank - Our research brings together staff and students to tackle the biggest problems that our planet faces today.

Part Industry - With a placement as part of every course, and a £4M Innovation Centre built by Dairy Crest on campus, you won't just learn about industry. You'll be a part of it.
