Sparsholt College

Description

I hope that you find our new website informative and helpful in making the important decision in progressing to higher education.Sparsholt College Hampshire has been established for over 100 years, so we have very wide expertise and experience in the land-based sector. Over the years, the breadth and diversity of the subjects have widened, student numbers have grown significantly and the College has evolved into one of the largest land-based colleges in the country. In addition, Sparsholt College Hampshire merged with Andover College in August 2007, providing students and the regional community with an even greater range of subjects. On our home page, you'll find the link to Andover College and an overview of some of the programmes at the College in areas such as Management, Teaching, Training and Health and Social Care.The range of opportunities at the Sparsholt campus remains very extensive. We have excellent resources and facilities which support learning and study. There have been significant investments in building and facilities in recent years and therefore I do recommend that you come and visit for yourselves at either a viewing day, a taster course, at one of our Saturday careers events or our Countryside Day held every May.The reputation of Higher Education at the College is very high and the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) confirmed this when they last conducted a full assessment at the College. During the most recent full assessment, all programmes were judged as 'commendable' in all respects. The QAA also judged that the specialist training facilities at the College were of a high standard.I recommend that applicants log on to GAA (Reviews & Reports / A-Z index by Institution), to view the full report for Sparsholt College and also peruse reports for any other college or university faculty that you may also be considering.However, it is important to remember that a reputation alone does not 'make' a college, nor do excellent buildings and top class resources. It is the commitment of a dedicated staff and the motivation of the students which contribute to a vibrant community, which is why students enjoy their courses of study.
