Sparsholt College Hampshire is one of the leading providers of university-level courses for the land and environment, with a history spanning more than 100 years. Our degree courses are validated by the University of Portsmouth - ranked in the top 2% of Universities worldwide (The Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2014), and our international students benefit from unrivalled facilities spread across a campus that spans almost 400 acres of the beautiful British countryside.
Sparsholt College has an international reputation for attracting students from across the world. These students - from 28 countries and counting - come to Sparsholt to participate in research, and to prepare themselves for global careers in the fields of animal, zoo and horse management, veterinary nursing science, ecology and conservation management, horticulture and fisheries.
The College has a very strong tradition of blending theoretical learning with all of the practical skills that modern industry demands. As a result, Sparsholt students leave the College very well prepared for employment; 91% of our graduates have gone into employment or further study (DLHE 2013). The College also provides a supportive, welcoming environment within which students are able to flourish and achieve their maximum potential. It is a learner-centred approach that we believe contributes considerably to the satisfaction of our students - Sparsholt College had the highest student satisfaction rate (94%) of all the UK land-based Colleges in 2015 (NSS Data).
