Course summary

This course is among a very select number in the UK which focuses on the relationship between horse and human, increasingly seen as central to the equestrian industry’s development. Based at our rural Northop campus, with access to excellent equestrian facilities, the degree builds on the university’s strong record of teaching in behavioural and equine science. Partnerships with local businesses help provide industry-relevant skills and experience, and guest speakers and educational visits are arranged throughout the course.

Assessment includes academic essays, research posters, presentations, seminar discussions and practical assessment. The balance between the different forms of assessment is determined by the different aims and learning outcomes of the modules. The degree will prepare you for a variety of careers including horse welfare and rehabilitation work, training horses, coaching riders or commercial equestrian yard management. You will also be prepared for employment in careers allied to the equine industry, for example research and consultancy work or postgraduate study. In addition to working in these areas previous students have also set up their own businesses. The Careers & Zone at Wrexham Glyndŵr University is there to help you make decisions and plan the next steps towards a bright future. From finding work or further study to working out your interests, skills and aspirations, they can provide you with the expert information, advice and guidance you need.
