But perhaps the most special thing about Hartpury is that there are many opportunities for our students to gain real world 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 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 health to welfare, behaviour and ecology.
