What will I learn?
Master’s Level units are delivered by tutors qualified at postgraduate level in relevant subjects, many of whom have a strong British Horse Society (BHS) and performance horse background, most being research active.
The research project enables you to undertake a detailed experimental study in a chosen area to develop analytical research skills with the support of dedicated supervisors. Interpretation and critical evaluation of current research findings will enable you to further develop links between the equestrian industry and the equine scientific community.
How will I be assessed?
Units are assessed by a mix of coursework, practical assessments, exams, case studies and project work. Emphasis is placed on the development of critical evaluation and research skills with the use of formative assessments throughout the programme of study.
Developmental feedback will enable you to widen the range of your academic skills as you progress through the programme.
Where can I go from here?
Masters graduates could progress to a career in lecturing, equestrian training, research support, equestrian journalism and performance analysis or alternatively you may choose to progress to study at doctorate level.
