Supporting you throughout your time with us
All university centre 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, to our 24/7 wardens who ensure that all students on site are safe and secure.
On top of this all international students have ongoing access to the international team in admissions as well as our team of Global Guides, current 2nd and 3rd year international students who are there to additional provide support and advice.
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.
Exchange programmes involve a semester or academic year of study for Hartpury students at partner institutions from Europe (through Erasmus+ exchanges) or outside or Europe (through Hartpury exchange partner institutions) or students coming to Hartpury to study. Visiting students do not pay tuition fees to Hartpury for their studies here. View the Erasmus policy statement.
Through the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) you can gain credits during your studies at Hartpury which can be transferred between the different universities that you attend. One ECTS credit is the same as 2 Hartpury credits:
- 60 ECTS credits represent a full year of study (equivalent to 120 Hartpury credits)
- 30 ECTS credits represent one semester of study (equivalent to 60 Hartpury credits)
- Hartpury module codes are arranged to show Hartpury credits (Department - Module - Hartpury credits - level of study) so HKN-Z56-30-6 is worth 15 ECTS credits.
Credits are awarded only when the course has been completed and all required assessments have been completed satisfactorily. We cannot award official Hartpury credit for incomplete modules.
