Working with School and Colleges
Here at Hartpury, we are committed to widening participation in education and showcasing what studying at college and university life is really like. We work closely with schools, colleges, students, teachers and careers advisors to ensure individuals get appropriate advice and guidance, to allow them to make informed decisions about potential study options and future careers. Our aim is to inform, inspire and educate individuals to reach their potential and make the right decision to suit their individual ‘wants, needs and aspirations’.
As an institution we are passionate about advancing awareness of environmental, life and social sciences through our distinct subject areas: Animal Science and Agriculture, Equine and Sport. We offer a range of A Levels and Diplomas through our college (16 to 19) provision, as well as undergraduate and postgraduate degrees for those interested in pursuing university level studies.
Below you will find useful information to support you and your students in their career progression. We run a number of events internally for KS4/5 students and are on the road regularly to talk about Hartpury and all of the opportunities on offer. Check out our ‘Events near you’ section, to find out where we will be next!
