BSc (Hons) Applied Equitation Science

This one year top up programme is designed for anyone who has an interest in and enthusiasm for horses and would like to get involved in discussions on training, problem solving and the horse-human relationship. It is ideal for individuals who wish to demonstrate their academic potential, ability to present a reasoned argument, enthusiasm for dissemination of scientific facts to the equine industry and who have a desire to support the improvement of horse welfare.

Throughout the programme we encourage you to develop your individual abilities and test factual knowledge through a variety of assessment methods including posters, leaflets, micro teaches, demonstrations and some written work. Applicants should be interested in investigating all aspects of equitation and are motivated to effect change through the creation of new theories based on scientific research to support the horse within all aspects of horse-human interactions.

This unique programme will enable you to develop existing knowledge through a mixture of taught and practical sessions which are integral to the programme. The knowledge gained through a variety of modules is applicable to horses and owners from leisure through to competitive industry. The programme includes a substantial honours project enabling you to carry out a detailed investigation in an area of your choice or from topics identified by the equitation science academic team with established research in biomechanics, behaviour and psychology and the horse-human relationship.

Riding is offered at the on-site Equestrian Centre managed by an experienced equitation science postgraduate with many years of industry experience. In addition there are opportunities to continue the development of personal and professional skills through work-related learning in industry which is strongly encouraged and supported. There is the option of a short national study tour to enhance and consolidate your experience which requires an additional financial contribution from each student.
