Eliman’s Hartpury Experience

“When I initially visited the Hartpury campus, I fell in love with the place. I knew immediately that it was the best place for me. I loved my lectures and lecturers, you were always engaged, I don't think there was a point where I wasn't interested in what they had to say. I had help from the wellbeing team in my last year and thanks to them I’m doing so much better now. Hartpury has an amazing community, amazing lecturers, just an all-round great place. I loved it.”

Developing Industry Connections

The staff are so helpful. When I spoke to my tutor about doing more on top of my studies, she put me in touch with three-time Olympian, Vittoria Panizzon. I undertook work experience while I was studying and then worked for her after I graduated, which was amazing. I got to experience lot of events which I’m very grateful for. None of it would have happened had I not gone to Hartpury. I am now a working at a race yard closer to home, working alongside the rider and groom. This involves helping with fitness work, racing drills, stable work.”
