As a recent graduate I cannot think of a better place to study, the teaching and support staff are fantastic. They are on hand to help you with any academic concerns you have throughout all years of study. From a facilities side there is state of the art labs which are really helpful, especially for dissertations, the library is so well equipped for research as well for assignments and exams. The social side is great, the local town of Newport is good fun pubs and bars and the on campus SU nightclub and pub give students a place to meet each week on Wednesday nights as well as the balls the SU put on throughout the year. The wifi is very good considering the rural location and can be accessed throughout the campus and all of the first year accommodation. I would highly recommend Harper to anyone, from all backgrounds with an interest in the course suites Harper has to offer.
My years at Harper have been absolutely amazing! It really does feel like a true 'community'. Harper graduates are also so respected in the real world and the placement year gives you so many opportunities. My lecturers and the support staff have been amazing and being a small campus, the lecturers know you well- you're not just a number on a page! Being rural, the SU is much more developed than the SU's at my friends universities. The welly inn is great for a casual catch up and the legendary balls are brilliant. We literally get fairground rides at our balls! There's also loads of clubs and societies and since I started there's continually been more being added. It isn't just sports clubs, there's also things like gaming, music and conservation. I was really worried when I first started about not having a car but there's a regular shuttle bus and everyone is always lift sharing to go to the shops so I had no issues when I didn't have a car either.
I don’t recommend coming here if you’re not a farmer! Agrics can be very dominating towards animal students - it’s a very niche community. SU is awful at £10 entry and drinks aren’t much cheaper than a normal pub, only open on a Wednesday night, as well as being outdated and poorly managed with balls and events not working out as advertised. Can’t walk anywhere from campus so if you can’t drive you’ll get major cabin fever. Limited clubs and societies. Newport is acceptable, just a normal town, not providing anything special like a city would but Telford nearby is good for that. Accommodation is good and can bring your car. Food can be bought onsite, with a Costa too. Fabulous access to animals ranging from companion to farm and the teaching is excellent with great support from staff and tutors. Depends what you’re looking for in a uni.
Been the best years of my life so far, Harper has so much to offer and there is always people to help you with absolutely anything. Smaller uni in terms of number of students but it makes everything so much more personal and it’s like a family! Great SU events and Newport is small but can always still have a great night out
Amazing rural university that specialises in land based degrees. A modernising campus with a working farm and plenty of space for outdoor practicals. A student union which puts on events that you won’t forget and they’re always looking out for you. An array of clubs and societies. A careers service that looks after you so well and you always know that they’ll be there for you. Good WiFi despite being a rural uni.
Amazing university. It feels like you are one big family. Every lecturer is there to help you grow and helps with whatever issue you have be it academic or personal life issues. They have an amazing careers service thst helped me write my CV to help me find part time work to help me fund my way through university. They also have an amazing mental health service that is available whenever you need them with a short waiting list. It is slightly out from the town but it is a short walk on a footpath or there is a bus available at certain times during the day. There are a range of societies for everyone to try and loads of social events. You will never be bored. Amazing university can't recommend enough
I feel so at home at Harper Adams university, it’s like a huge family and the staff make everyone feel welcome. Tutors are helpful in aiding and encouraging learning and the support available for academic and mental health issues are amazing. I can’t imagine spending my university experience anywhere else but at this small agricultural university in Shropshire.
Harper is the best place to study any of the courses they offer. They have the best facilities and educated staff who want the best for you. It’s reputation amongst the industry is so great and this is reflected in the high employment rate of its graduates. The social side is off the scale but there’s also more chill things to do if you’re into that and they offer everything needed for the best all round student experience. I love Harper!
After completing my first year at Harper, I can honestly say going to this university was the best decision I made. The facilities for all things animal and agriculture related are second to none, the lecturers and tutors always try their hardest to make you feel confident in the modules, the lectures themselves are interesting and useful. The student union along with its clubs and societies try to cater for everyone which really makes this university stand out. I wouldn’t dream of going anywhere else.
The club's that have the larger numbers of members are only ones who get the recognition and support needed from the SU. The types of clubs and societies available are great; there is a small amount of facilities on campus but I suppose it's only got a small amount of students compared to most.
Staff not very willing to teach us topics and are often late or not even present to exams. No help towards our placement year, myself and others still have nowhere and uni has offered us no help at all. SU is in major debt and has gone down hill dramatically. This uni is not what it seems on the outside. Go elsewhere
Both academic and social experiences are fantastic, Harper has opened up so many career options for me. I actually went through clearing and it’s ended up being the best thing that ever happened to me! Couldn’t see myself anywhere else!!
Four years completed. Awesome uni, great experience and all because of the social side and facilities the university provides. Not like any other uni. Everyone knows everyone, welcoming and friendly especially as being 4hours from home.
Harper Adams is a great university amazing facilities and good lecturers. However, it is a great shame that the university doesn’t have any regard for what the students want. Changing the university and forcing the student union to comply will be the downfall of the university and will see people go to Cirencester in the future.
Harper Adams was the best decision i ever made. I met my closest friends, gained a degree and had the best social life. The lecturers were amazing offering support whenever you needed it for any situation, academic or personal. The sandwich year where you go out for a year on placement offers you experience as well as education outside the lecture halls.
The campus is located in the center of London. It is convenient for students to experience the city while studying. The university provides very useful facilities and students have lots of space either for individual study or group discussions. Various study resources are also easily accessible.
