Hartpury may be world renowned for its exceptional sporting prowess, international events and state-of-the-art facilities, but some people still don’t know we do degrees!
We may be called Hartpury College but did you know that half of our student population are studying for degrees or postgraduate qualifications? And with 94.4% either in work or further education six months after graduating, we can help you open the door to your dream career.
Teaching and facilities for our university students are second to none. The Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education highlighted seven areas of good practice at Hartpury in its hugely positive 2014 report, including the quality of our student experience, our fantastic work placement and research opportunities, our links with employers and our success in preparing our graduates to hit the ground running in their chosen industry.
Our brand new dedicated University Learning Centre gives you access to a 24-hour facility with everything you need, from workstations and quiet study areas to a postgraduate room and access to journals.

And when you need to take a break from your studies, our university students have their very own ‘Legends’ bar on campus, as well as a thriving new Students’ Union with clubs, societies and activities to suit all interests. We’ve even got our own Costa Coffee bar!
