Tutors from all subject areas as well as student support, accommodation, finance, transport and GCSE re-sits will be available to answer your questions and let you know more about our courses and life at Sparsholt. You will also get the chance to tour our specialist facilities such as our Aquatic Research and Conservation Centre (ARCC), Animal Management Centre that houses over 1,200 animals and our large Equine Centre (awarded British Dressage Venue of the Year) plus many more fantastic facilities found here. Tours will be available by asking tutors or by minibus.

Our dedicated Principal will also be on hand to answer any questions you may have and will deliver welcome presentations to give you an insight into why Sparsholt is one of the UK’s leading land based education providers.

All Visitors to the Equine Centre will be asked to follow some bio-security procedures given the recent outbreak of EHV affecting horses at Crofton Manor in Hampshire.  We are continuing to keep precautionary bio-security controls in place for the time being and ask all visitors who may have been in contact with any horse to ensure a clean change of clothes is worn.

Sorry, no dogs allowed on campus with the exception of recognised assistance dogs
