This taught master's programme, launching in September, can be studied over one year on a full time basis or two years on a part time basis.

Designed to take your equine knowledge, academic skills and research practice to the next level, the course provides a range of modules carefully planned to enhance your experience through a range of delivery methods and unique learning experiences. Our research-led teaching team will deliver the programme through a range of lectures, demonstrations and a variety of other platforms to ensure that your learning experience is exciting and challenging. At our stunning equine campus, set in rural Essex, you will gain practical support from our teaching team of industry specialists supporting competitive horses in training. This will allow to you to fully integrate the theory taught with ongoing case studies to gain 'real life' on understanding of the ages and stages of training in relation to nutrition, farriery, training, breeding, behaviour and much more.

The course will focus on equine performance through the study of gait evaluation, pathophysiology of injury, advanced and applied nutrition, exercise physiology, equitation science, human influences on equine performance, and methods to evaluate and enhance performance in a range of disciplines. We will provide you with current research focussed materials and work with cutting edge technology used both within academic research and in the field to monitor and evaluate performance and welfare. Underpinned by 'real' industry experience, we will support you to ensure that you are well prepared for the work-place and your personal career aims, by developing skills to plan and manage significant projects and develop outstanding interpersonal and people management skills.
