Postgraduate Studentship Scheme

Our Postgraduate Studentship Scheme provides a fantastic opportunity for you to complement your postgraduate study, working on an important real-world research project within a paid position at Hartpury.

The competitive programme - offered across our research specialisms of sport and exercise sciences, equine performance and animal welfare - will enable you to develop specialist subject knowledge and skills, as well as gain experience and transferable skills for the world of employment. Recent graduates have progressed into lecturing, academia, performance analysis, senior coaching and sponsorship roles.

Each post comprises a two-year term-time contract of 15 hours a week. Successful applicants will complete a full induction programme and receive ongoing continuing professional development opportunities throughout the year, including teaching and learning qualifications and support for Higher Education Academy membership.

The scheme offers an exciting development opportunity, whilst enabling you to subsidise your postgraduate study fees with a wage. We have a limited number of positions at one time, making this a much sought after opportunity.
