Internationally, agriculture is developing fast. There is demand across the world for technically competent agriculturalists who understand the global conditions in which agriculture operates. This practical programme focuses on efficient and environmentally sustainable crop and livestock production systems, and international agricultural development, trade and marketing.
Industrial experience is an important part of the programme and normally takes place during year 2 on a part-time basis. Some students may elect to complete their experience full-time in the summer between years 1 and 2 or years 2 and 3. Hadlow College has many contacts for agriculture industry placements in the UK, mainland Europe, USA and a number of other countries. UK and European study tours are also an important feature of the programme.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.
Applicants should have:
240 UCAS points
FROM A-levels, preferably one in a Science based subject
OR a Level 3 vocational qualification
PLUS all applicants should also have a GCSE grade C or above in English, mathematics and science.
• Life experiences are taken into account when considering applications.
• Applications from mature students are welcome.

No work experience is required.
