About Hartpury Animal

We’re a nation of animal lovers. The global pet care industry is set to swell to £157 billion by 2025*. Furthermore, the global animal health market is worth nearly £25 billion and growing rapidly**. You’re joining the animal industry at a very exciting time.

New science and technology helps us to understand animals like never before. We’re able to explore and develop ground-breaking methods that prioritise the physical, psychological and emotional needs of an animal to maximise wellbeing and performance.

As a Hartpury animal student, you'll benefit from and get involved with the latest scientific research. You'll work with research-active lecturers to help solve real-world issues. Our students co-author papers and present at national and international conferences.

You'll benefit from access to over 70 domestic and non-domestic species on campus. There aren’t many places that you’ll have access to invertebrates, reptiles, livestock and exotic species.

Our commercial animal businesses – canine and equine therapy centres, and livestock farm – will provide plenty of opportunities for you to develop your practical and business skills, ready for your career.

You'll have access to outstanding expertise. Alongside well-known lecturers who are also authors, trainers, behaviourists and veterinary professionals, we welcome industry professionals on campus on a regular basis. We also host the UKA dog agility competition each year, which our students get involved with too.

We’re fast establishing ourselves as a globally-recognised centre for animal training, behaviour and performance.
