Teenagers across the UK are getting their A-Level results this week, and some will be looking at last minute options to get the right university places – but there won’t be any late additions to Harper Adams, which is already “sold-out” for 2009/10.
“All undergraduate and postgraduate courses at Harper Adams are full”, says Academic Registrar Noel Morrison. “So unlike in the last couple of years, we won’t be entering the clearing process.
“We monitor the rate of applications to the college, the number of offers of places and acceptances, throughout the year, and at each stage we’ve been ahead of the numbers achieved in the previous year and our own targets, so we knew this was in the pipeline.
“Places are short across the country as more and more young people choose to study, but it’s satisfying to know that the specialist higher education which Harper Adams offers remains under high demand and that we continue to attract potential students with the right qualifications, experience and thirst for the land-based subjects taught here.”
Places have been secured by 600 hundred students, who will arrive at the Shropshire campus at the end of September ready to follow routes including agriculture, engineering, business, food studies, animal welfare, veterinary nursing, land management, adventure recreation and countryside management.
Potential students hoping to join the Harper community in 2010 can visit the campus for an open afternoon on September 16, or full open day on October 11 – before they get to work on a glowing UCAS application form to bid for one of the coveted 2010/11 places.
