Royal Agricultural University
Applied Equine Science
The programme provides advanced scientific information which is specific in its relation to the problems and processes involved in the management of horses and ancillary equine industries; individuals who have an interest in the horse industry are encouraged to use the information provided in a practical manner and it is hoped to provide a bridge between academic equine research and the practical equine world; this gives an understanding of developments of equine scientific importance and, at the same time, provide a higher academic qualification which can act as a stepping stone for further research.
A good Honours degree in a cognate scientific subject (preferably a bioscience at least 2.1). Mature candidates with significant relevant work experience and lower academic qualifications may also be considered for entry, following interview with the course manager.
