In light of the on-going situation with Coronavirus/COVID-19 and government guidance, we have decided to revise our current open event dates.

Come and meet our degree experts and discuss studying at TEF (Teaching Excellence Framework) Gold University Centre Sparsholt. Whether you are a mature learner looking for a career change, looking for part-time study or beginning your dream career we have a range of fantastic degree options to help you become tomorrow’s expert in land based studies.

Tutors from all subject areas as well as student support, transport, finance and accommodation will be available to answer your questions and provide information about courses and life at University Centre Sparsholt.

You will also get the chance to tour our specialist facilities such as our Aquatic Research and Conservation Centre (ARCC), Animal Management Centre housing 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.

If you’re looking to live on site, University Centre Sparsholt students have the option of living in dedicated HE halls or sharing student accommodation and facilities with the University of Winchester.

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

Opportunities to join our teaching team! Our teaching team is renowned for its industry contacts and relevant current experience – are you active in the land and environment industries and keen to spread your knowledge to help the next generation?
