Study, train and play in an environment that’s as close as it gets to a professional club. We have an outstanding track record of developing players as well as preparing them for a career beyond their sport. We’ll help you balance your studies and your rugby commitments.
We’re seven-times British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) National Champions. Among our graduates are professional players including Jonny May, Alex Cuthbert and Ross Moriarty. In fact, more than 200 of our students have gained international caps or signed professional contracts around the world.
You’ll benefit from our extensive links with professional and semi-professional clubs, allowing you to combine playing for Hartpury and an external team. Some players will have the chance to represent our Greene King IPA Championship side - the only student-led team in the league.
Off the pitch you’ll also have access to our performance services. Strength and conditioning coaches, physiotherapists, and nutritionists to lifestyle management and game analysis will keep you performing at your peak.
We design your timetable with you in mind, meaning you'll get the best from your qualification and your training. As well as weekly sessions from dedicated coaches, you’ll have opportunities to compete at your level of university sport. The British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) leagues are your chance to compete against some of the UK’s top teams.
