OVERALL UNIVERSITY RATING

Uni has been one of the worst experiences of my life due to multiple admin reasons such as enrolling each year to be told I am doing the access course ... every year(!) amongst other problems. Setting up work placements also has made me fall behind on uni work because of issues with Grofar that was out of my control. They also requested multiple times for evidence of certificates for previous education which I had supplied on enrolment for my degree and provided again via email. I was still sent an email for it and said that if I did not produce this I could be withdrawn from the course. When I queried it they explained they had asked multiple students for it (who was on the same access course as me) yet when I spoke to those students they hadn't been asked. I hadn't received a answer for why they needed it either. It made me feel isolated, stressed and nervous. Uni is hard enough without the added stress of a poorly managed administration team. As a 'mature' student I found it really hard to make friends due to the age difference. I was also threatened by another student at Hartpury but I do believe that it was a stand alone case, bullying is very minimal at Hartpury. There are many groups and support available for anyone who is having a hard time. The teaching staff (expecially my tutor) are also extremely considerate and helpful and they are the only reason I stayed to finish my degree. It is well known that uni is no ride in the park and it is a lot of hard work. The content and teaching ability is immense and if you're really willing to learn and apply yourself then you'll succeed regardless. Nothing in life is worth doing if its too easy, where is the fun in that!

I’ve enjoyed it, it was hard at first as I didn’t really get on with my flat but I’ve got to know more people and I’m really enjoying my course. I would say definitely get involved in freshers week

I love the practical aspect of the course. It is great to have animals on site. It is amazing when the lecturers are enthusiastic about their presentations. Lots of support when needed.

Enjoying University and a very good campus that makes you feel at home. Having a horse at the livery yard on site was not the best option for me, despite it being easy it can come with a lot of pressure and stress which for me is the complete opposite to what owning a horse should be like.

I think it lacks support in the first few weeks and we are all very isolated. I like my tutors and academic leader as they are all helpful and friendly. I would say to future students, I highly advise bringing a car as transport is very limited

It’s been amazing. The university is awesome. The work is hard but with all the support we get nothing is holding me back from achieving the best I possibly can. It’s the best uni I could have chosen and I would pick here again if I had a choice - no hesitation.
