Organisation profile

Hartpury has a growing reputation for animal-related and land-based research. Students support staff with their projects and develop their own ideas in a broad range of areas, from agricultural science and agronomy to animal health, welfare, behavioural ecology and therapy. Our postgraduate staff and students benefit from a wealth of research opportunities, not only with Hartpury’s wide variety of small and large domestic and exotic species but on Hartpury’s 500-acre farm estate and in the canine hydrotherapy and equine therapy centres.
