Taught Postgraduate Programmes

A flexible approach

Taught programmes last one year full time or two to three years part-time (though you may take up to four years to complete). We also offer flexible learning, an approach that allows you to pick from our range of postgraduate modules to build a programme around your own needs.

You may also be interested in the AgriFood Advanced Training Partnership (AATP), which offers training spanning the entire agri-food supply chain from one day workshops through to postgraduate awards.

Why enrol on a taught postgraduate programme?

The Harper Adams postgraduate programmes have been designed to allow you to develop your personal and vocational aspirations and/or to supplement your own company's development programmes. The flexible learning format enables postgraduate students to combine studies with a busy work or domestic schedule.

Studying for a postgraduate award is challenging, but benefits include:

  • Increased awareness of recent developments, best practice and latest research within a subject area
  • Improved understanding of facts, concepts and principles and a development of knowledge in specialist areas
  • Development of skills required to deal with complexity and uncertainty when applying managerial, scientific, technical or economic solutions to problems
  • Development of personal autonomy and responsibility and the ability to critically evaluate one's own work and that of others
