The Royal Agricultural University (or Agricultural College as it was previously known) is one of the oldest agricultural educational establishments in the Gloucestershire area and it has a long proud past that spans over 175 years. Although it does not have the amount of students that attend the nearby Hartpury College it has around 1,100 full time students enrolled on courses such as agriculture, estates management, farm management and animal studies.


Set just outside the beautiful town of Cirencester the university boasts some incredible lecturers, equipment and links to the farming and agricultural industry that makes it a popular choice for those looking to achieve qualifications in these areas. You can be sure that they will have Briggs And Stratton Parts like the ones you can find at and other equipment parts on hand to show their students how to deal with any equipment breakages.

The college is an architecture marvel. Created to look more like a stately home. It has a grand central tower that has interesting features of agricultural produce around it. It also has the elegant Boutflour Hall, which was at one point used for an episode of Mastermind. In its main dining room the names of previous students dating back to the mid nineteenth century look down upon you.


Despite the history this is still a very modern learning facility with upto date lectures halls and practical working farms.
