Established in 1845, we are recognised nationally and internationally as a leader in the delivery of educationresearch and consultancy, in and relating to, agriculture and the rural environment.

Our undergraduate and postgraduate courses help our students to achieve their future dreams in the agricultural, land, business management, food, equine and property industries.

You will find all aspects of life at the RAU varied and exciting. We pride ourselves on being large enough that many facilities are on-site; yet small enough to create a friendly atmosphere.

Steeped in history and tradition, our picturesque campus also makes the ideal venue for weddings and conferences in the Cotswolds.
