The horse industry is now one of the fastest growing rural sectors, and the care, welfare and management of horses is an expanding industry in the UK. Hadlow College is recognised in the industry as a centre of excellence and regularly receives requests from employers for its students and graduates to fill equine vacancies.
This comprehensive degree programme covers all aspects of equine management and equips graduates with the necessary skills to run their own equine business. Structured to allow you to pursue a programme which reflects your experiences and interests, the programme is a mix between theory and practical outside demonstrations, visits and seminars. You will cover the training and breeding of horses, equine science and estate management.
Students are assessed through practical assignments, reports, case studies, presentations and exams.
3 years part-time (3 days a week)
IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.
