Duchy College is the region’s largest land-based education and training provider, with both campuses located in the heart of the countryside, surrounded by rolling hills and working farm land.
This Level 3 Agriculture course is perfect for you if you want to develop your technical knowledge and practical skills in order to gain a better understanding of the management of different agricultural enterprises, or as an alternative to A-levels to gain university entry.
You can expect to be in college three to four days a week and to gain a wide variety of experience from practical work on the College farm and in association with our industry partners, which include Rothamstead Research, who provide unique research capabilities for the UK.
We are also the only agricultural college in the country where students take an active role in first cut silage making.
Our Duchy Stoke Climsland campus is home to Future Farm, a £10 million scheme including a state-of-the-art dairy unit, the campus occupies a 367-hectare estate with dairy, beef, sheep, arable and forage crops, plus a range of dry and wet habitats typical of the area. We also have an impressive portfolio of up-to-date farm machinery.
