If you aspire to have a career in the thoroughbred or sports horse industry, our specialist Bloodstock and Performance Horse Management course will give you the knowledge and learning experiences to prepare for careers in training, breeding and sales, racecourse and event management and racing administration.
This degree course with a foundation year incorporates an extra year of study at the start of your course, so that you can progress with confidence. It will develop the skills you need for your later studies. It is particularly suitable if:
- You don’t have the grades for immediate entry onto a three-year course
- You have non-traditional qualifications or experience
- You’re starting university after some time away from education
- You’re looking for more support during the transition into university study
Industry experience is at the heart of this degree with a work placement in your second year, and visits to leading racing businesses in Lambourn, Newmarket and Ireland. Our graduates have secured high profile positions in the racing industry, including organisations such as Godolphin, Juddmonte, The Jockey Club, Weatherbys and The National Trainers Federation and you could join them.
This specialist course compares science and business practices to those within the sports horse industry and equips you with the skills to step into the professional world.
