Equine studies program structure

It’s possible to take a variety of undergraduate and postgraduate courses in equine studies. Two-year associate and foundation degrees offer an excellent grounding in the field and prepare you for exciting jobs in the equine industry, or continued study on a bachelor’s program.

BSc degrees require at least three years of full-time study, but most universities encourage students to complete an optional placement year. This would extend your program to four years.

You’ll learn through a variety of theoretical and practical teaching methods, including lectures, seminars, workshops, and lab work. You’ll also benefit from regular field trips and guest presentations from industry experts.
