Sport degrees

Community and Performance sport

Our students go on to change the lives of professional athletes, as well as the people involved in community and school sports. They also graduate with valuable skills to succeed in a range of different careers.

We're home to top-level coaches, sport and exercise scientists, nutritionists, conditioners, medics and athletes, across 10 Sports Academy programmes, as well as our student-led rugby team, Hartpury University RFC. Our Sports Academies have produced over 200 international sports stars over recent years.

Our outstanding sports facilities mean you can develop your skills as an industry specialist would.

You’ll benefit from some of the UK’s most advanced sports technology including an anti-gravity treadmill, altitude chamber, high-tech 3D tracking cameras and high-resolution digital mirrors.

You’ll also have access to professional rugby and football pitches, a golf driving range, shooting range, outdoor education classroom and a 1,500m2 multi-sports hall.

We have excellent links with sports clubs, schools and national governing bodies. When our students aren’t developing their skills on campus, they're out and about, competing, working with athletes or inspiring the next generation of sports people through coaching and PE.

You’ll never be short of exciting ways to prepare yourself for your future career in sport.
