Who we are:

Bicton College is the Land-Based College for the county of Devon, home of Exeter Chiefs’ Rugby Academy and the UK’s first RBST College.

We have a beautiful campus, boasting 200hectares of open parkland and rolling countryside. Our campus consists of indoor and outdoor equine facilities bordering Bicton Equestrian arena, Bicton Home Farm, EaRTH (Environmental and Renewable Technologies Hub), on-site accommodation and, new for 2014 – a £3 million state of the art Animal Husbandry School.

We are dedicated to bringing the best courses and experience to our students.

Bicton College’s partnerships with Dartington Hall, Exeter Chiefs, Schumacher College, Dartmoor National Park, River Dart Country Park, The Rare Breed Survival Trust and Dartmoor Zoo ensure that students have unique opportunities to develop and grow in experience in their chosen field of study.

Learners make good progress in lessons and develop valuable vocational and personal skills that prepare them well for their future careers; their progression into further study or employment is good’ (Ofsted 2012)
