On our HE courses, you will benefit from the wide breadth and experience of our expert lecturing team and the exciting and highly-varied facilities and resources. Teaching methods will vary from unit to unit, but typically any day of lectures will contain a mixture of theoretical content delivered in one of our well-equipped lecture rooms interspersed with visits to the yards to practice and cement learning.
Our assessment activities are designed to mimic real-life scenarios and as such include tasks designed to develop a skill set suited to 21st century professions in addition to academic knowledge and aptitude. These range from traditional written work and exams to presentations and practical demonstrations with the involvement of industry specialists.
The dissertation project, planned in the second year and completed in the final year, offers students the opportunity to focus on the area of equine science they are passionate about, and to add to the field of knowledge around this. As part of this process you will have access to a range of state-of-the-art analytical equipment as well as the physical resources across our two equine sites.
Successful students may progress onto a related MSc or PhD programme. Alternatively, the programme provides students with the necessary skills for management within a commercial or competition yard environment, or related industry.
Typical employers include competition centres, yards, research centres, feed manufacturers, event management agencies, equine welfare organisations, riding schools, racing yards, studs and equine veterinary clinics
BSI approved riding hat, boots, jodhpurs, whip, hoof-pick and grooming kit.
