Building on that success, Hartpury have now introduced a women’s football and Futsal programme, focused on developing some of the UK’s brightest female footballing talent.

Studying on our specialist sports campus offers unrivalled opportunities to achieve your potential both in the classroom and on the pitch.

The range of support available to our academy athletes could include UEFA licensed coaching, individual programming and training, physiotherapy, strength and conditioning, sports psychology and nutrition advice. Plus all academy members have access to our exceptional sports facilities. It’s as close as it gets to being in a professional club.
