Find the right course for you
All of our courses – A-levels and diplomas - offer clear progression routes through to university courses and the world of work. All students work not only towards their main qualification, but also the Hartpury Certificate.
Our diplomas in our specialist subject areas have the same academic value as A-levels (a two-year Extended Diploma is equivalent to three A-levels) but are more practical and work-related, without missing out on any of the important subject theory.
Our A-levels focus on traditional study skills and students study three A-levels for around six hours per week; that’s more teaching hours than the majority of sixth forms and colleges. They are also supported to access compulsory enrichment with opportunities and clubs relating to their area of interest, ensuring they stand out from the crowd when they apply to university or move on to employment.
Our Access to Higher Education Diplomas enable successful students who want to do a degree but left school or college without the qualifications they needed to move into Higher Education.
We offer a wide range of diplomas in our specialist areas of sport, equine and animal management and science as well as in agriculture, farm mechanisation and agricultural engineering, outdoor adventure and uniformed public services.
Our A-level offer is unique – combining academic study with a world of enrichment opportunities – and we’re skilled at helping students to balance their elite sport commitments and their studies.
