Hartpury University and Hartpury College has today unveiled its dynamic new website, developed in collaboration with leading digital agency, Cantarus.    

Hartpury is one of the UK's leading specialist education providers with over 4,500 students from more than 60 countries studying PhDs, postgraduate and undergraduate degrees, and diplomas in subjects including agriculture, animal, equine, sport, veterinary nursing, business, and biological sciences, as well as A-levels. Uniquely, they’re also the only institution with a college and university on one campus. The organisation selected Cantarus as their digital agency of choice, given their extensive experience and expertise in web development and design for educational bodies.

The newly launched website, meticulously crafted by Cantarus’ team of expert developers and designers, represents a significant leap forward for Hartpury University and Hartpury College. Boasting a sleek, intuitive interface, the site offers an enhanced user experience for both current and prospective students, faculty, and visitors alike. With an upgraded content management system and improved user-friendly navigation, finding relevant information and resources is easier than ever.

Rob Powell, Digital Marketing Manager at Hartpury, comments:

"We're thrilled to partner with Cantarus to launch our new website. The new site reflects our commitment to providing our users with a seamless, informative, and engaging experience. Thanks to Cantarus, we now have a platform that not only imparts knowledge but captivates our wide variety of users. Their expertise has been invaluable in shaping this transformative digital landscape."  

Rob Helsby, Head of Experience Design at Cantarus, further emphasises:

"We're delighted to have delivered a bold and impactful website for Hartpury that brings the University, College, championship rugby team, and world-class equine facilities into a single, seamless user experience. The education sector is highly competitive, so it was important for us to deliver a solution that felt unique and resonated with prospective students across the UK and internationally. 

Do what you love. Love what you do. Everyone we engaged with at Hartpury had an infectious passion for the brand. We fully bought into this during our visits to their beautiful rural campus and channelled that energy into the design process. We spoke with students and staff as part of our discovery process and ran usability tests with these audiences to ensure the new website delivers a simple, joyful, and effective experience for everyone. As always, we're proud to have delivered a solution that looks fantastic whilst meeting web accessibility standards, proving once again that accessible design = great design."
