Why study business at Harper Adams? Everyone needs a business education. Whatever career you follow it will almost certainly involve some ‘business’. From manufacturing to marketing, food to finance, you need to develop and manage business opportunities to create wealth and well-being, prosperity, jobs and choices. At Harper Adams we prepare you for a successful career in a wide range of industries. We give you not just the knowledge, but the skills to put it into practice in the real world outside the classroom. Through lectures and tutorials led by commercially experienced staff you will learn to think critically, solve business problems, analyse company finances and investigate new markets – then do it for real during the work placement year that all of our students undertake. Extended Foundation Degree Programme (EFDP): Do you want to study for a degree but don’t have the right qualifications? Or maybe you want to return to study after a few years in the workplace or raising a family? Then the Extended Foundation Degree Programme (EFDP) could be just what you’re looking for. In their first year students choose one of six specialist routes, before progressing onto a full foundation or bachelor's degree. It's a great option for students without traditional qualifications.
