Throughout our proud history, Hartpury has encouraged its students to actively gain employability skills and has held graduate attributes at its heart.
Our students are highly employable; 97% of our graduates are in employment, further study or other purposeful activity within 15 months (Graduate Outcomes, 2023). They recognise the value in what they do and are able to make positive contributions to society. Our experienced and qualified Careers Consultants support students throughout their studies with group and 1:1 career, education information, advice and guidance.
These sessions equip students with the abilities and knowledge to map their future, building up their career and life credentials and evidencing them, to ensure they are day-one-ready for their dream career.
We hold a database of 3,000 local and national businesses offering work placement opportunities. Voluntary charity and part-time on-site working opportunities are sometimes available too. Every Hartpury University student is assigned a Placement Tutor, who acts as a central contact throughout any work placements. Students can also meet with our placements team at any time.
