Where we are

Hartpury is set 10 minutes outside the cathedral city of Gloucester, on a rural campus complete with world class facilities.  We are easily accessible for those students travelling from outside the UK; we are less than an hour from two international airports, Birmingham and Bristol, and about two hours by train or car from London.


EU students looking to enrol in September 2017 will pay the same amount as those from the UK, which is £9,250 a year for undergraduate (degree) study.  Postgraduate fees vary depending on the type and level of the course.  Please visit the specific course pages to find this cost.

Beyond 2017 enrolment fees for EU students have not yet been set as this is one of the areas that will be addressed during the UK’s negotiations to leave the EU, a decision made by British voters at June 2016’s referendum.  As and when clarity is reached we will publish details, which we hope will be as early as possible.

Financing your studies

EU students looking for 2017 entry can take advantage of the UK’s student loans to finance their courses.  Loans from the Student Loan Company do not need to be paid back until after graduation, and only then when the graduate is earning above a certain amount annually.
