Postgraduate open days and virtual events

This is the ideal time to study a postgraduate course at the RAU. The current global challenges of food security, climate change and Brexit provide unprecedented opportunities for the industry and those who work within it.

You may be wondering about the status of these events given the current Covid-19 outbreak. At the moment these events are still scheduled to take place. We are closely monitoring the situation as it develops and will provide updates in due course. The wellbeing of our students, staff and visitors is our priority and we continue to follow the latest advice from the UK Government and Public Health England. 


We are pleased to reintroduce in-person events, starting with our Postgraduate open day on Saturday 4 September 2021. 

In the Autumn we will also be running another series of virtual events, which will focus on each postgraduate course; with a presentation giving a thorough overview of  the course content, benefits and career prospects hosted by the programme manager. This is followed by a live Q&A, giving you opportunity to ask any questions you have about the course, how to apply, or any aspects of university life. Details of these will be advertised soon.

At the RAU, we are committed to creating a stimulating, innovative environment in which to pioneer new modes of thought and explanation which will directly impact on the sector. We pride ourselves on our links with industry and our courses are designed to meet the demands of the employment market for land-based expertise, both in the UK and worldwide. 

Many former students have gone on to perform at the highest levels across a broad range of careers. There are numerous options to choose from; whether that be leading innovation and change in the land management, farming, agri-food or equine industries, informing future land-based policy or setting up businesses. The reach and influence of the RAU alumni network worldwide is extraordinary.

Set in the beautiful Cotswold countryside, our small size provides a real sense of community amongst students and staff, which supports, develops and encourages postgraduates from all backgrounds to achieve their ambitions.
