This three-year science degree gives you a thorough scientific understanding of the subject area, knowledge of the equine industry, and the scope to develop business and management skills. The majority of teaching on this course is carried out at Oxford Brookes, with a small number of modules based at Abingdon & Witney College's commercially run thoroughbred stud at Common Leys, Witney, where you can apply your classroom learning. You also attend one module at Witney College campus.
You will go on trips to research centres, studs, racecourses and sales, enabling you to see how the industry works and preparing you for future employment. Respected industry figures also deliver guest lectures. The combination of modules from across equine, life sciences and business subject areas allows students to graduate with a combination of scientific literacy and management skills.
The course provides a flexible approach that will enable students to apply theoretical knowledge to their work within the Equine industry. Students will typically attend approximately 12 hours of lectures a week and are required to spend additional time independently on self-directed study.
You will experience lectures, laboratory-based activities, seminars, peer and self-assessment, online resources and tutorial support. Trips and guest speakers from the industry help strengthen links to the workplace and development of skills for employment.
Staff involved with the delivery, teaching and assessment of the course have a range of industry experience and academic skills and a keen involvement within research.
This course is validated by Oxford Brookes University. Applications are made via UCAS - code D322.
