Askham Bryan College is one of the leading land-based colleges in the UK and is the largest provider of specialist land-based further education in England.
Originally opened in January 1948, the first students enrolled on residential courses at the then Yorkshire Institute of Agriculture. Until 1964 only agriculture and horticulture courses were available but during the 1970s the range of subjects was broadened and higher education qualifications were also offered. Today the College offers courses from entry level to honours degrees in a number of Centres and has a turnover of £29 million.
The College’s campuses extend through Yorkshire, Cumbria and the North East. Each location offers something different, whether it’s a particular course or specialist facilities. What all our campuses do have in common is easy access to stunning countryside including the Yorkshire Dales, Lake District and Northumberland National Park, which act as the perfect outdoor classroom for our students.
