Hartpury University students on Postgraduate Search say:

“An exciting journey where I am being pushed and developed into a practitioner I never expected or thought I was capable of becoming, in an environment that celebrates performance in every way.”

“I never thought university was something I would go into due to my ambition of becoming a pro athlete but when I was injured at the age of 17 I had to look at other avenues. Hartpury came and scouted me at a major final and that made me feel special and wanted. I enjoyed my 3-year BSc course so much that I stayed and did my MSc too. It shows Hartpury’s quality considering I disliked education through secondary school and now work as a full time lecturer within sport.”

“I started in September - I am impressed by the facilities and standard of teaching for vet physio. The campus has a lot to offer. I would highly recommend Hartpury as a University.”
