Fleming College signs international transfer agreement with Hartpury College

A new transfer agreement will allow students in the School of Health and Wellness the opportunity to complete a degree in the United Kingdom with just one additional year of study.

An agreement was signed last month providing graduates of Fleming’s Recreation and Leisure Services diploma program a new pathway to complete a Bachelor of Science degree in Sports Studies at Hartpury College in Gloucester, England. Fleming’s Fitness and Health Promotion diploma program has had a similar agreement in place with Hartpury since 2014.

Under the agreement, Fleming alumni enter a top-up program at Hartpury, which offers a broad range of study options. Students are able to tailor their studies to suit individual interests and career aspirations – whether it’s coaching, teaching, health and fitness, sports development or performance analysis. Upon completing the program, they graduate with their degree.

“An international study experience can be life-changing and enriching,” said Carol Kelsey, Dean of the School of Health and Wellness, Fleming College. “This agreement provides enhanced options for our students in the Recreation and Leisure Services and Fitness and Health Promotion programs to further their studies and complete a degree.”

“We look forward to welcoming students from Fleming College,” said Dr. Christopher Potter, Hartpury University Centre’s Associate Dean of Teaching, Learning and Scholarship. “We have seen growing numbers of students joining us from Ontario diploma programs in recent years, attracted by our outstanding learning environment as well as the opportunity to graduate with an Honours degree in a single academic year.”
