Sport diplomas

Reach your potential on and off the pitch

We're proud to be the number one sports college in the UK, with millions of pounds invested in recent years to ensure our sport students can access the best learning, playing and teaching resources.

Hartpury was one of the first colleges in the South West to be awarded Sports Leader UK Leadership Academy status in recognition of our excellent standards of delivery of the Sports Leaders UK awards and qualifications.

The awards and additional qualifications that our students can achieve in addition to their main qualification, provide coaching pathways and real world experiences that benefit not only students but also local schools, clubs and the wider community through work and volunteering placements.

We’ve also produced more than 150 sporting internationals in the last 10 years, with five former Hartpury students in action at Rugby World Cup 2015 and Rio 2016 producing Hartpury’s first Olympic medallists. We're an accredited centre for the Talented Athlete Scholarship Scheme, which provides funding and support to some of our top performers.

All of our sport courses will give you a sound understanding and knowledge of the sports industry, whether it’s fitness, therapy or coaching, plus the practical experience to back that up and boost your CV.

And if you’re interested in developing your own rugby, football or golf skills and performance alongside the study of coaching and training, our specialist diplomas could help you open the door to your dreams.
