Large amounts of student-led research is undertaken throughout the year within the Animal and Land, Equine and Sport subject areas. Each year we support hundreds of undergraduate research dissertations and many postgraduate research projects across a wide range of subject areas, a significant number of which go on to be published or presented at national and international conferences.
Hartpury also hosts research, scholarship and practice conferences such as the UK Coaching Certificate (UKCC) Level Four Community of Practice conference, the UFAW Student Animal Welfare Conference and the Alltech-Hartpury student conference. Events such as these provide a fantastic opportunity for students to present their work, interact with academic and industry experts and participate as full delegates.
The research updates provide a record of student achievement in terms of research and scholarly activity within the three subject areas throughout the year. They celebrate our students’ success at national and international conferences as well as highlighting the publication of student research in peer-reviewed journals.
