Hartpury University term dates 2019-20

These terms dates are for both undergraduate and postgraduate students.

Whilst our course content is structured in semesters (teaching blocks), study periods are organised into terms, with holiday between them.

We design course timetables to ensure you have time for work-based and fun activities alongside.

Our students make the most of volunteer, work experiences part-time job roles and social activities alongside their studies. The dates below will help you to plan your time to make the most of these kind of activities too.
