We’re a close-knit community with a global reputation. It's not too late to join us in September 2018.
We work with a range of organisations, including industry bodies and leading companies and charities, in the UK and throughout the world to open doors to incredible opportunities for our students – from exciting work placements to amazing jobs and field trips.
But perhaps the most special thing about Hartpury is that there are many opportunities for our students to gain practical experience on our own specialist campus.
Our Animal students are able to learn about and work with a wide variety of small and large domestic and exotic species – not only with our on-site animal collection but at the farm and in the canine hydrotherapy and equine therapy centres. It’s the best possible preparation for a career in the industry.
You’ll be more than just a number as an animal student at Hartpury University Centre. With small teaching groups compared to many universities and your own personal tutor, your lecturers will support you as an individual to achieve your ambitions, whether that’s working in animal science, welfare and conservation or in animal therapy-related roles.
Plus you’ll be part of a thriving research community, with plentiful opportunities to support staff with their projects and develop your own ideas in a broad range of areas, from animal welfare, performance, behaviour and health.
Our wide range of animal degree courses include Bioveterinary Science, Applied Animal Science, including with a therapy option, Behaviour and Welfare and Animal Management. And if you’re a more practical learner, our Foundation degrees can be a great option, with the opportunity to top-up to the Honours degree later. Plus we offer part-time and flexible study routes, which can help you fit your studies around your current work and family commitments.View all Animal University Centre courses
