Starting September 2022!*
Students are required to undertake a range of modules in order to give them a rounded programme of study and ensure they reach the level of academia and scientific understanding often required in graduate job roles. You will learn how to analyse and evaluate, and will use scientific literature to reinforce your findings.
The College has a multitude of industry links which we have developed over the past twenty years, enabling us to integrate work-based learning with Higher Education. You will even have opportunities to shadow high-level coaches (including from Leicester Tigers, BHS and UKCC Equestrian coaches), physiotherapists and personal trainers.
Students have access to our Equine Rehabilitation Centre, embedded within their Therapy and Rehabilitation module, allowing them to gain hands-on experience and put theory into practice. You will have access to free British Horse Society examination training and riding lessons, which will increase employability and enhance equitation skills.
As part of your course, you will have the opportunity take part in the following enrichment activities: charity events, various trips and visits (previously, students have visited Dubai, the King’s Troop Royal Horse Artillery, Blenheim and Burghley Horse Trials, Olympia, Ireland and more), in-house competitions at our commercial Brooksby Equestrian Centre, student voice, access to the gym, BHS training and exams. Students also benefited from guest talks from industry specialists and successful BMC alumni.
