RAU – An Overview

The Royal Agricultural University (earlier known as the Royal Agricultural College) was established in 1845. This was the first agricultural college in the English speaking world. From its inception, the College was staffed with innovators and pioneers and made a considerable impact on farming practice and agricultural science. In 2013, the College was granted full University status. The University has an international reputation for teaching and research excellence and prides itself on having strong links with industry around the globe. The Royal Agricultural University is a Tier 4 Sponsor and is on the Home Office’s Register of Sponsors.

Campus:

RAU is based just outside of Cirencester town in Gloucestershire – the capital of the Cotswolds. The campus is spread across 25 acres of greenery and offers a safe and secure environment to live and study. It is large enough that many facilities are on-site; yet small enough to create a friendly atmosphere with a strong sense of community. As per the Complete University Guide, RAU is ranked second in the UK for its high investment and facilities spend per student.
