Students studying an agriculture course at Bishop Burton benefit from our industry expertise and partnerships, as well as outstanding facilities and resources.

You will have access to our multi-million-pound Centre for Precision Agriculture (part of the Yorkshire and Humber Institute of Technology) complete with the latest cutting-edge agriculture technologies that focus on precision farming to transform food production and reduce emissions, pollution, waste and soil erosion. As part of this, we are pleased to be offering free bite-sized qualifications to upskill agricultural workers. Find out more about the 8-week courses.

Farm developments also include the new high-quality pig unit. This forms part of Bishop Burton’s extensive mixed-use farm estate, which is split between arable and grassland for livestock.

Agriculture degree students at University Centre Bishop Burton are given the platform to enhance their technical abilities and understanding of the wider agricultural business, including enterprise management and the role farming has in the climate change debate.
They also work with the Centre for Agricultural Innovation (CAI), in partnership with NFU Mutual, on research projects to tackle major issues facing the industry. These projects – many of which are put into practice in the sector – enable students to enhance their research skills and forge links with farming companies which can be highly beneficial when launching a career.

We offer Access to Higher Education Diploma in Agriculture. This qualification is designed to prepare students aged 19+ for a Foundation Degree.
