Students will be based at one university but will study on both campuses and have the opportunity to enjoy the facilities of both.
An investment of more than £20million over the last decade has created an attractive rural campus that celebrates our heritage and status as best modern university with all the teaching, research, leisure, and conference facilities you need on your doorstep. Contemporary laboratories, a student hub, farm innovations, and specialist centres for engineering, veterinary services including nursing and physiotherapy, entomology and food are amongst the latest additions. At Harper Adams you’ll become not just a student but a member of a thriving on-campus community, offering outstanding learner support and a wide range of clubs, societies and extra curricular activities. The campus has a shop, two cafes, large refectory, main SU bar and the Welly Inn pub. Further amenities can be found in the nearby market town, Newport.
Our beautiful 600-acre campus is situated in the heart of the UK; the Keele campus offers you everything you need to work, study and relax to achieve your goals, whilst enjoying student life.
Life at Keele is vibrant, friendly and inclusive with a comprehensive range of support systems and facilities to suit all your needs, throughout your study time with us. There are opportunities to become involved with a range of sports, societies and social activities to ensure your success and enjoyment. Our campus also provides convenience stores, coffee shops and a variety of eateries, Blackwell’s bookshop, Well Pharmacy, Santander bank, Student Union, as well as library, health centre, chapel, accommodation and student services; there to support you when you need us throughout your time at Keele.
Going to University is an exciting step to take, and one that will be the foundation to your future career and the opening to a range of opportunities for you. However, we also understand that for many this is a daunting decision, especially with regard to fees and finance and understanding the true costs of being a student, as well as the financial support that is available to help you meet those costs.
Fees will be charged at the maximum annual level as announced by the Government for the academic year 2020/2021. We have planned for this to be £9,250 plus any inflationary increases approved by the Government.

Accreditation will be sought from the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS), enabling graduates to register and practise as vets upon the award of their degree.
We are liaising with the RCVS to ensure that the curriculum meets their criteria for approval. The RCVS process takes a number of years and is not completed until the first cohort of students complete their degree at which point the RCVS undertake a formal inspection.
The entry requirement will be broadly in line with other veterinary schools, in the range of A, A, B with Biology at grade A or Chemistry at grade A, a second science subject preferably at A but no lower than B. A third subject of your choice, preferably at A but no lower than B. A wide range of other qualifications will also be accepted which we consider to be equivalent to A levels. There will also be a work experience requirement including time in a veterinary practice and in other animal settings.
All applications are via UCAS using the School code H25 and Course code D100. The programme will go live for applications via UCAS in May 2019. Please remember that any application for vet schools has to be submitted before the early UCAS application deadline of 15th October, prior to the year of intake.
