You'll gain extensive industry experience, have access to a campus farm that works with Sainsbury's and Glencore, and benefit from our brand new £2 million agricultural technology centre. You don’t need to have an agricultural background, you simply need the passion and drive to make that difference.

You'll develop knowledge and skills from livestock agricultural experts who're leading the way in business, science and innovation. This will prepare you to graduate ready to progress into a range of careers including farm management agronomy, economics, research and policy and consultancy – career opportunities are diverse.

You'll spend up to 980 hours working in industry, as well as the option to take an integrated placement year. Students work with businesses such as Foyle Food Group, Agrii and NFU, and internationally in New Zealand, Uganda and the USA.

We’re pioneers of livestock performance, productivity and profitability, holding the Southwest Promar International Milkminder award for our outstanding dairy herd. We’re also leading the way in crop production research, as one of the bases for environmental consultancy ADAS’s commercial trial plots. These plots are designed to help secure our future food supply.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
