University Rugby

Five times British Universities and Colleges National Champions, our senior academy has continually proven itself as one of the best university sides in the country. At Hartpury you’ll have the opportunity to compete at the very highest level of university sport and complete your studies in a variety of honours and foundation degree subjects.

Hartpury Rugby has produced over 100 internationals over the last ten years, and with excellent links with Premiership giants, Gloucester Rugby, academy graduates regularly go on to feature in the Aviva Premiership and Heineken Cup competitions.

The university has also produced full internationals for England, Ireland, Wales and Canada, as well as some of the emerging rugby nations, like Georgia.  Offering talented players the chance to experience a professional rugby club atmosphere, we have established an outstanding track record of developing players as well as furthering their education.

We’ve also created the perfect all-round package to take you to the next level. As part of an elite squad, it’s designed to support your development by offering access to professional services including nutrition, physiotherapy and strength & conditioning. Tailor made timetables will also keep players at their best both on and off the pitch.

Hartpury rugby has excellent links with Premiership side, Gloucester RFC, which has seen numerous students move through the Hartpury ranks and onto academy or professional contracts with the Cherry and Whites.
