The Careers Service at Harper Adams prides itself in offering friendly advice and information while you are an undergraduate at Harper Adams and beyond.

Our graduates are highly sought after by employers. Courses are highly vocational and this is reflected in the very high employment rates of our students.

Official figures in 2010/11 show that 98.3% of the students who graduated from Harper Adams and its associated colleges found employment or remained in education six months after completing their course. One of the reasons for this good rate of employment is that the university courses include a years placement period in industry. This is highly respected and desired by graduate employers.

Harper Adams aims to work in collaboration with employers to ensure they are able to source the best students for their development needs. This relationship is very important to us. The Careers Service holds an annual careers and placement fair, please contact us for further information.
