Why choose the RAU?
“If you are a young person thinking about university I would definitely recommend the Royal Agricultural University. It has history but at the same time students here have great mentors and teachers – it starts there. If you have people that can inspire you, and influence your life, you are much more likely to take things in.”
Levi Roots, of Reggae Reggae Sauce and a judge of the RAU’s Grand Idea competition for student entrepreneurs.
Our students are at the heart of everything we do and it shows. We are ranked seventh in the UK for student satisfaction* – and number one in the South West – following the publication of the National Student Survey (NSS) 2019. We also placed 10th in the University of the Year category at the Whatuni Student Choice Awards 2019, as well as sixth in the Job Prospects category. These prestigious set of awards are based on the views of students themselves.
The RAU is large enough that many facilities are on-site, yet small enough to create a close-knit community that inspires students to consider us a home from home. Students are known to staff by name and supported by personal tutors.
You can also get expert help and access to funding to set up your own business while you study at the RAU. Our award-winning Enterprise and Entrepreneurship Programme provides an inspiring and supportive environment in which students can share, develop and launch their ideas.
We have become just the sixth university to be made a Centre of Excellence by the Institute of Enterprise and Entrepreneurs (IOEE). The RAU is the only small, specialist university to gain this accreditation, awarded for leading edge enterprise practice and for making the development of students’ entrepreneurial skills a priority.
