"Sparsholt has helped start me off in this career and helped me learn so many new things, it’s given me so much more confidence in myself as a person."Grace, Level 2 Agricultural Engineering
Reflecting the latest developments in farm machinery and practices, Agriculture at Sparsholt continues to be a growing choice for many who are eager to become the next generation of skilled technical staff and managers.
Our students learn all about modern farming techniques and the technology shaping work on the land, alongside hands-on experience on our working commercial farm and in our workshops making repairs to machinery and tractors. Getting involved in events from a charity ploughathon to visits to shows, industry events and machinery dealers, our students gain high levels of knowledge and practical skills in all aspects of the industry.
Some of our students’ university destinations include:
“After university I worked as a farm advisor in environmental consultancy. My move to Sparsholt has allowed me to develop my love of agriculture and land management, while leaving some time to work on our family farm.”
