Information and advice

Last updated: Thursday 2 April

Our priority is to continue to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our students, staff and visitors. To keep our community informed, this page and the Frequently Asked Questions below will be updated regularly.

Public events

Hartpury University and College has decided to cancel or postpone all public-facing events due to be held on our campus until 1 July, and this will remain under review. (This includes open days, offer holder days, student interviews, and induction days – more information on the alternative arrangements in place for these particular events can be found here)

Students and staff

Face-to-face teaching for college and university students will temporarily cease at the end of Friday 20 March, after which all teaching will be moved online. Students have received emails detailing their plans for the coming weeks. We will continue to keep students updated on our plans for teaching and assessment via email and this website.

We are monitoring the global situation closely and are able to act quickly as the situation changes to ensure the safety of our students, staff and visitors. We are well-prepared and continue to act on the advice from Public Health England (PHE), the NHS, the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO).
