Agriculture

I’ve really loved every lesson – they are all different. I’ve had great opportunities to develop my knowledge in the new state-of-the-art workshop. I’ve enjoyed being treated as a mature student. The balance of practical and theory work is very good and every aspect of the course has inspired me to work hard and achieve good grades.

Countryside Management

The structure of the countryside management course is very good because you spend time in lessons learning about all the different habitats and then you get to go out and apply your practical skills and methods to the environment.

Arboriculture

Sparsholt is a really nice place to study. The classmates and staff are friendly and there are so many facilities here. The best part about being at Sparsholt is getting hands-on with the practical, land-based studies. You can learn in the classroom, however, you can’t put this into practice until you’ve actually done it.

Access to Higher Education

I really enjoyed getting back into learning after a long time out of education. The support was excellent! I also enjoyed getting hands-on with the animals. I learnt how to study effectively and felt a lot more prepared for my Foundation Degree.

Public Services

Sparsholt prepared me for this as the course includes regular time with the Army so I could find out more information and also see what the lifestyle is like. Having lecturers who have served in the Army meant that I could get answers to questions that I was struggling to find out.
