What happens if I want to come to the open day as well as The Harper Adams Experience?

If you want to get the most out of your visit we suggest attending our open day before coming along to The Harper Adams Experience.

Once you have registered for the open day, you can attend course talks, student life and finance talks, chat to academic staff and have tours of the campus, all with your parent/guardian. The open day starts at 9.30am, however you don't need to arrive until 12.30pm on Sunday 10 July as all talks and tours are repeated in the afternoon programme.

At 4.00pm prompt, registration for the Harper Adams Experience will open. This is when your parents will leave and we sign you in and get you settled into your room on campus.

Note: A luggage room will be provided so there is no need for you to carry your luggage with you all day.

What if I can't make those dates?

Unfortunately there is only one Harper Adams Experience per year, but we do have open days and campus tour visits that you are able to attend.
