Jacob's Hartpury Experience

"Hartpury is a great place to be. It’s got everything you need – the extensive facilities, the infrastructure, and the outstanding lecturers. The lecturers have invaluable experience and knowledge and they pass all of their knowledge onto the students. Hartpury made me feel like I could better myself by being educated there.

I had some of the best times of my life at Hartpury. My advice to students would be to grasp all of the opportunities on offer."

Developing Industry Connections

"I love that at Hartpury you’re not just learning in the classroom. I gained a lot of skills and confidence through the practical sessions and work placement. I took the opportunity to go on a placement year and work on a farm. I developed lots of different skills and new ideas that I took home to our family farm."
