Become a multi-skilled graduate with a thorough grounding in agricultural and equine developments, equine science, business including marketing, finance, law and negotiating skills. You'll also have the chance to put your learning into practice during a work-based placement year.
You will also delve into the changing dynamics of the UK horse industry, the second largest economy in the rural sector. Throughout the degree you will benefit from internationally recognised visiting speakers from all areas of the equine industry, and gain knowledge in international equine business and science, covering Northwest Europe, and the USA.
With a work placement built into the course and our powerful network of graduates it’s no wonder our students have gone on to secure work in the UK and abroad at prestigious companies such as Weatherbys, Volac International Dairy Nutrition, Haygain and Horse and Hound.
Business students also have the opportunity to work with real start-up enterprises based at the Gloucestershire Growth Hub on campus, using their knowledge to find and implement solutions to current industry problems.
You will complete a 15-week work placement in the second year of the course which develops key transferable skills and helps you to gain industry contacts even before you graduate. In the third year, you will apply and develop your expertise and complete a 12 month period in the workplace. This is an excellent opportunity to develop a range of links within the growing equine, agriculture and business industries.
