Moulton College is an educational establishment with a main campus in the village of Moulton in Northamptonshire, England. Although initially established as the Northamptonshire Institute of Agriculture in 1921, it now has expanded its teaching curriculum to cover a wide range of land-based subjects, sports, and construction. Moulton College operates a number of satellite campuses in Northamptonshire and Cambridgeshire, including ones in Daventry, Silverstone, Higham Ferrers and Peterborough.

Moulton College teaches at all levels on the QCF framework from entry level through to doctorate level, with all BSc and MSc higher education degrees accredited with Northampton University. Academic staff at the college conduct applied research in their field of study. The college funds a number of associate lecturer posts who conduct PhD studies concurrently with teaching on undergraduate courses.
