Harper Adams University has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.
There is an ever-increasing demand for food, with the UK relying on both imports and exports to feed itself and drive economic growth. Behind the supermarket shelves lies a globalised supply chain that is sensitive to economic and environmental events, e.g. too much or too little rain can reduce or devastate harvests. This dynamic complexity, together with more demanding consumers and concerns about food safety and security, local sourcing and carbon footprints make this an exciting and challenging employment sector. To deal with these issues this course develops skills across business, agriculture and food disciplines, producing well-qualified managers who are sought after in the agri-food sector. Students are able to register with the Chartered Management Institute and gain a level 5 Award or Certificate in Management and Leadership alongside their degree programme. 4 years (full-time) including a one-year work placement. A three year programme is available for applicants with at least two years, full-time relevant work experience. Please contact Admissions for further information on this option.

Assessment is via a balance of course work and examination. Students receive written feedback on all course work to help them improve. In addition, first year students undertake examinations in two subjects at the end of the first term to enable them to gauge how they are progressing and feedback is provided on these exams. Examples of assessments may include a group of 3 students present on a specific issue in food production – e.g. pesticide residues in crops / fresh produce – and how the relevant farm assurance schemes requirements effectively manages the risk to levels which remove the problem / risk from the food chain.
