Course summary

This equine health and nutrition programme provides an in-depth specialist understanding of the wellbeing of the horse through study of the principles underpinning equine health and nutritional management. This programme seeks to provide a stimulating and challenging experience for students wishing to gain scientific knowledge alongside valuable laboratory practical experience in order to promote the health, welfare and optimise nutrition of the equine athlete. A large number of animal and equine feed companies require knowledgeable graduates to enter the industry with nutrition expertise. Companies are expanding research and development of products to improve performance and health status within the equine industry. Graduates will be equipped with a range of scientific knowledge and skills that will allow them to enter a wide variety of scientific and technological based careers both within the equine and animal industries and wider areas, in a national and international context. The programme contains a breadth of highly relevant scientific modules of the horse, including anatomy, exercise physiology and equine disease, ensuring sound underpinning of knowledge for progression into applied health and welfare settings. Students develop a strong understanding of the nutritional industry, including the legislative requirements of feeding and feed manufacturing. Graduates will be equipped with in-depth knowledge and ability in ration formulation and clinical equine nutrition, effectively preparing for entry into nutritional roles within feed merchants and retailers, as well as in independent capacities. The inclusion of enterprise and entrepreneurship ensures students are effectively prepared for managing their own business or working within management roles of companies, with strong appreciation of transferable skills developed.
