The MSc Equine Science programme provides you with the opportunity to develop and further explore a range of applied subjects within the field of equestrian science, building on your prior learning and experience within the industry.

The programme contains core modules within a broad range of subjects; each with a strong applied context enabling you to appreciate and evaluate the interaction of science within practice.

Students have opportunities to use different types of technology, for example gait analysis and electromyography equipment, that they can use for data measurement and collection depending on the modules selected or the line of investigation taken in their thesis.

Your choice of modules will help you to increase your knowledge and understanding of how equine science can maximise performance, extend career length or aid in selection of the performance horse, with a core goal of optimising the horse’s welfare.

Both the postgraduate dissertation module and the optional postgraduate independent study module provides you with the opportunity to examine in greater level of critical detail an area of equine science which you have a motivated interest in and which is potentially linked to future career development.

Students are encouraged to attend conferences, present their research and become a member of the wider academic community, including at our own annual Hartpury-Alltech Student Conference.

Equestrian related activities are increasingly contributing large amounts to the UK's rural and national economy. A horse's worth is associated with its performance and how we can measure and affect those factors is increasingly important. Read more
Equestrian related activities are increasingly contributing large amounts to the UK's rural and national economy. A horse's worth is associated with its performance and how we can measure and affect those factors is increasingly important. This programme provides an insight into this exciting and cutting edge area.

UWE Hartpury has excellent facilities both to deliver and support study in this area, and to enable you to gain a wealth of wider experiences to support your knowledge and skills. Postgraduate study in Equine Science at Hartpury can be the start of many exciting opportunities. The programme consists of taught modules delivered via weekend study blocks to facilitate study alongside your career.

As a postgraduate student of Equine Science, you will have a personal academic tutor to help support you to achieve your individual goals and interests. Study skills module weekends are also held during the induction period and combine with formative assessment opportunities to help support your academic development. This is combined with staff who are engaged with advancing equine science on the international stage yet remain accessible and committed to promoting your achievement. Students are encouraged throughout their programme to attend conferences, present their research and become a member of the wider academic community including at our own annual Alltech-Hartpury Equine Performance conference.

The friendly, supportive and personal atmosphere here at Hartpury combines with the flexible modular programme to offer a unique, inspirational, engaging and enjoyable postgraduate experience.

The MRes in Animal Behaviour and Welfare offers an opportunity to expand your knowledge of animal behaviour and animal welfare science. Read more
The MRes in Animal Behaviour and Welfare offers an opportunity to expand your knowledge of animal behaviour and animal welfare science. You will explore advances in animal behaviour within animal cognition, animal personality, animal communication and language, sexual selection and sexual conflict, and social behaviour. You will also look at contemporary issues in animal welfare science such as methods of animal welfare assessment, animal welfare legislation, welfare implications of keeping animals in captivity and issues related to improving and assessing animal welfare.

This postgraduate programme will allow you to advance the knowledge you gained from your animal related degree and provide you with the required knowledge and skills to develop practical solutions for existing and emerging problems in animal behaviour and animal welfare science. The knowledge and skills that you gain from the programme will enhance your career prospects and can be applied in future scientific research and in practical areas such as conservation, animal welfare organisations, research centres and zoos.

The Masters by Research in Animal Behaviour and Welfare includes 60 credits of taught modules, including core modules of advances in animal behaviour, contemporary issues in animal welfare, and research methods and optional modules such as wildlife conflict, postgraduate independent study and reflection on practice. These modules tend to be taught in two day blocks. This means that the teaching is condensed to allow the Masters study to occur round other commitments in our students' lives.

These modules will give you the opportunity to expand your knowledge of animal behaviour and welfare science, advance your skills in critically evaluating current research, and develop your abilities in research design and statistical analysis. These skills, along with one to one support, will allow you to understand and apply current scientific thinking, develop new ideas and evaluate current processes and practices. This will allow you to effectively design and carry out your dissertation research project. This will be original research that will make a valuable contribution to the field of animal behaviour or animal welfare. The dissertation is highly flexible and provides you with the freedom to develop a research project of your own choosing in order to fit in with your specific interests and career aspirations.

The programme can be completed full time in one year; part time routes are available and should be planned with your Programme Manager.

The Masters in Research Equestrian Performance programme provides the opportunity to put into practice research techniques from a range of new and rapidly moving areas depending on your chosen field of study. Read more
The Masters in Research Equestrian Performance programme provides the opportunity to put into practice research techniques from a range of new and rapidly moving areas depending on your chosen field of study. We will support you with the opportunities and expertise that Hartpury has to offer as an educational and world class competition establishment. Our institution is increasing its research profile, including our active Research Centre for Performance in Equestrian Sports, while the new Rider Performance Centre opens up a world of opportunity. Students are encouraged to become immersed in the research ethos through attendance at conferences, presentation of their own research and by becoming a member of the wider academic community, including at our own annual Hartpury-Alltech Student Conference.

The programme includes an extended research project alongside a research process module and subject specific modules, chosen by you, to complement your chosen specialist research topic. These modules have included Equine Therapy and Rehabilitation, Applied Equine Exercise Physiology, Equine Behaviour and Welfare and Rider Performance.

The aim of the extended research project is that you will make a valuable contribution of knowledge to the field of equestrian performance. Through the requirements of the programme, you will be expected to critically evaluate current research, analyse primary data and report your findings. These skills will allow you to understand and apply current scientific thinking, develop new ideas, and evaluate current processes and practices.

The taught components of the Masters in Research Equestrian Performance are delivered via weekend study blocks to facilitate study alongside your career or personal commitments.

Each taught module will be delivered over either one or two weekends depending on the credit weighting and delivery methods for the module, while the extended research project is undertaken across the academic year through independent study supported by an allocated supervisory team.

The Masters in Research Equestrian Performance can be completed full-time in one year. The option for part-time study is available and study plans from two to three years may be negotiated depending on personal circumstances and career goals.

Students enrolled on the MSc in Research are able to apply for funding to support their research project (currently a maximum of £1000).
