Supporting you throughout your time with us

All College students at Hartpury receive a wide range of support throughout their course, from our Student Wellbeing team who are there to help students settle in and can be called on at any time during your time at Hartpury College, to our 24/7 wardens who ensure that all students are safe and secure.

International Department

The International Office is responsible for the recruitment and initial support of students outside of the EU.  This involves processing applications and issuing offers, overseas recruitment and partner institution liaison as well as providing advice and guidance on areas such as admissions criteria, visa requirements, annual fees and choice of academic programmes.

Due to the varied nature of the international office we work in close partnership with many departments in the college such as marketing, accommodation, finance, student welfare and transport as well as the academy and academic staff to ensure an enjoyable student experience.
