MSc Equine Behaviour, Performance and Training
After finishing school at 16 I came straight to Sparsholt, completing a Level 3 extended diploma in Equine Management, before continuing to do a degree, and a master’s.
The lecturing staff really are phenomenal. The small class sizes that Sparsholt offer means that not only do they know your name, they get to know you as a person and find out what you what to achieve. They also have hands-on experience of the industry, so are well equipped to prepare you for whatever career path you decide to take.
The equestrian facilities are brilliant – and are now even better with the addition of Charisma, the Racewood Simulator. UCS also hosts a wide range of industry standard research equipment that you have fantastic access to as a student.
Whilst studying here I developed a real interest in the ‘research side’ of the course. My lecturers noticed this and really helped me to pursue this, setting me up to work on my dissertation with some of the best equine researchers, giving me numerous opportunities to get involved with university research.
I loved studying here so much that after my master’s I decided to continue to PhD level at the Royal School of Veterinary Studies in Edinburgh, which is something I never thought I would say.
