We are so fortunate to have such amazing lecturers, who provide us with additional support when we need it.
I wanted to invest my college career into something I truly enjoy. I admire that we have the opportunity to take vocational subjects that are tailored to our own niche interests. I grew up with a family who love horses as much as I do – my great-grandmother was an Equine vet and my grandmother and mother used to ride often – therefore, I decided to study them at college.
One excellent attribute of vocational courses is that you get the perfect balance of practical and theoretical learning. Some of my lectures involve lunging or grooming horses at the Equine centre, and some take place at the main campus, all of which are highly interactive and engaging. We also have the opportunity to tailor our education. In my second year, I decided to select the horse welfare pathway, as rehabilitation and veterinary sectors interest me most.
We are so fortunate to have such amazing lecturers, who provide us with additional support when we need it. They create lectures that aid us in seeing the practical industry skills that we can develop and we continue to learn the theory behind why we carry out certain practical tasks.
I am currently applying to university. I would love to continue working with horses and learning more about them and feel that the journey at university will allow to me expand my knowledge even further.
