Research at RAU

Royal Agricultural University (RAU) has a long history of applied research, providing solutions and recommendations of real practical benefit to those working in the countryside and associated industries. Our research mission is to: ‘Develop and sustain applied and near-market research relevant to the land-based sector’

Our connectivity with a wide range of land-based businesses and staff with expertise in sustainable agriculture, food chain security, agronomy, agribusiness, equine science, real estate and urban regeneration and development, the RAU provides a stimulating environment for research.

We offer two post graduate research-based courses MScR and PhD both validated by University of Gloucestershire. These programmes of study cover a wide range of topics and will appeal to anyone interested in further study of the land-based sectors.

The RAU has recently developed a virtual research hub which allows our research staff to interact across a wide range of subjects. Our research programmes therefore benefit from a truly multi-disciplinary approach, which leads to interesting projects and innovative problem solving.
