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.
