About our postgraduate teaching

The part-time option is popular with students required to fit study around work and personal commitments. But full-time works for those with commitments too, because postgraduate degrees at Harper Adams are delivered through ‘block-based study’, with each module being delivered in blocks of on-campus, face-to-face teaching that last one or two weeks. In addition to this, students are required to conduct further self-study away from campus, fully supported via ‘The Learning Hub’, the university’s interactive virtual learning environment which has a range of learning aids.

There is an MRes option on most subjects, combining taught modules with an in-depth research project, for students who wish to enter research-based careers.

All courses are underpinned by Harper Adams University’s extensive research and long-standing collaborations with other research institutes in the UK and abroad. Many are also accredited by relevant professional associations.
