Change career direction

You may find that your current qualifications don't give you all of the skills or knowledge needed to enter your chosen career. Taking a taught masters or postgraduate diploma/certificate qualification can be a relatively quick and financially sound way of enhancing your CV to fit your aspirations.

Explore the subjects you are passionate about

Make new discoveries

Widen your network of contacts

Develop expertise in your field

Increase your earning potential

Studies show that most postgraduates earn more than undergraduates over their careers

“A postgraduate qualification has allowed me to specialise in an area that I love. I would definitely recommend postgraduate study at Harper Adams because you will be coming to a place where every lecturer knows your name, is an expert in their subject area and is always willing to help you achieve your potential.”

Study flexibly alongside your existing job, your role as a parent or other commitments

Postgraduate study shows commitment and the ability to learn new skills and ideas

“The experience of living, working and studying in such a multicultural location positively influences your personal development. Asserting and excelling oneself in foreign environments makes you flexible and strong in your business life.”
