Working with School and Colleges

Here at Hartpury University and Hartpury College, we are committed to widening participation in education and showcasing what studying at college and university life is really like. We work closely with schools, colleges, students, teachers and careers advisors to ensure individuals get appropriate advice and guidance, to allow them to make informed decisions about potential study options and future careers. Our aim is to inform, inspire and educate individuals to reach their potential and make the right decision to suit their individual ‘wants, needs and aspirations’.

As an institution we are passionate about advancing awareness of environmental, life and social sciences through our distinct subject areas: Animal Science and Agriculture, Equine and Sport. We offer a range of A Levels and Diplomas through our college (16 to 19) provision, as well as undergraduate and postgraduate degrees for those interested in pursuing university level studies.

Below you will find useful information to support you and your students in their career progression. We run a number of events both internally and externally for KS4/5 students, and are on the road regularly to talk about Hartpury University and Hartpury College and all of the opportunities on offer.
