Students and parents alike were keen to see the developments at the UK's premier provider of higher education for business, food, rural and land-based studies which has recently been named as the Sunday Times University College of the Year.

Current student ambassadors gave campus tours which include teaching area, the learning support area, the award-winning bamford library, accommodation, leisure facilities and assisted with tractor and trailer tours of the College Farm.

The Principal, Professor Wynne Jones said “It has been a wonderful day with the highest attendance at an Open Day we’ve seen.
