Love it at Hartpury! I made a great choice with my course and university. The rural location and smaller cohorts suits my style of learning. I’m looking forward to continuing my studies here.
Hartpury are very industry focussed and we work on transferable skills a lot with a lot of emphasis on the work place
Reasonably small cohorts mean plenty of opportunity to engage with lecturers and have a dialogue rather than just being another anonymous student. Can be a bit too much PowerPoint at times!
Amazing they’re so good
Lots of recent investment. Great facilities
It’s a rural location being a land based institution but it’s still convenient for Gloucester
Loads of choice and they add new activities if there’s demand
Support is always there if we need it from tutors. There’s a lot of well-being support available too
Love it, but weird lecture times make it hard to combine with a job and training.... Otherwise I like everything very much, the lecturers are very helpful and supportive
Great, being at hartpury is one of the best experiences i have had. i value being at this uni in very high regards. because of this, i would say that my uni experience is fantastic
In the field that i wish to go into, Hartpury is a reputable institution. It has given me an edge up as I now have a placement at a boarding school due to being a student there
its not practical enough
Facilities at the institution are world class. I think the students union has done well in this respect
Hartpury accommodation is on campus, so is a great in terms of distance in that aspect. However, it is in quite an isolated location and therefore it can be hard to go to the shop at times.
The variety of sports is amazing! Some of the best Ive seen
Assignment marks and feedback could be given sooner
University has shown to be a lot different to what I expected it to be. A degree is much different to what I have done previously and harder to get your head around
Always offer help
Most - interesting topics Least - not always engaging
Good sports however very few societies
Very good, always have support when needed
It has been really good! The accommodation is nice and the lecturers are really welcoming and when ever we have an issue we are always able to speak to someone
The library can offer various things for your future after university. This includes placements that they can help you find
I like how they are so small classes and the lecturers know your name. I don’t like as much the hours, there isn’t many hours in a week.
It is good but don’t hear about it much
Very good, there are multiple lecture theatres and great sporting facilities
Yes, my halls are 1 minute walk away from my lecture halls, and the university itself is 10 minutes to town .
Very good, there is a wide range of activities you could take part in at Hartpury.
Very good. The lecture classes are small so you can have 1 to 1 sessions with your lecturer easier than at a bigger university
I’ve had a really good experience, but struggle with completing extra work sometimes as busy with extra things such as sport and horses. However get lots of help and support from uni for this
It gives you loads of opportunities
I like all the practical work but dislike some of the modules we do
There’s a very good range
Yes it gives you lots of support
Really good! Enjoy what I do and think the uni caters for what I need very well. Whenever I have needed help I have always had somebody to turn to for help which is great
They’re really good they always email out opportunities for students to take, placements etc or job opportunity
I love that they offer practical lessons too. I learn in a more hands on way so for my studies this is really beneficial.
I think it’s good they work very hard to get everyone’s opinions and views and take into account what students want
Really good, everything you need! library is a nice size with a quiet area. The canteen is big enough, mostly always can find a seat
Yes, it’s about 15 minute drive from the town centre so getting into town if you drive is easy. If you can’t buses run often so it’s easy enough to get it bro town. The uni also provides a mini bus for students to get
10/10! The uni is fantastic for all sports, the facilities they have are amazing and cater for everyone! You couldn’t ask for much more
Really good. Being a smaller uni you can always book a 121 with tutors if you need the extra help. They also reply to emails pretty fast which is great if you’re stuck on something
Positive experience and the course relates to the practical side of the industry. There are plenty of sport opportunities allowing a commitment and chance to further skills and fitness
Variety of work placement opportunities and links to clubs and professionals
Is very practical and relates to the module and there’s a variety in module choices
Yes very practical
Overall my university experience is very good i’ve met loads of new friends from all over the world and the social is great. Also good being in a sports team and playing competitive sport
Good range of times
Hartpury University is very local, it is a short journey about 10 mins from the centre of Gloucester Town
Very good, lots of wide range of sports and very good level
Absolutely love Hartpury university. Would recommend to anyone wanting to do sport equine or animal courses. It has a very family feel to it and feels very comfortable on campus
Lots of practicals which is really good.
It’s quite far away but I like it like that as it’s in a rural surrounding
Really good. Lots of elite level sports. Although not many societies
