What will I learn?

Studying for a degree with an integrated foundation year will offer you a supportive environment if you have been out of education for a few years or do not have the necessary UCAS points from your recent course of study. The foundation year (Year 0) will precede our standard 3-year degree course programmes and enables preparation for degree study, with successful completion granting direct access to the undergraduate course of your choice at Writtle University College. If you dream of working with horses, our practical courses are the ideal way to begin your journey into the equine industry. You will enjoy extensive access to all of our facilities at our specialist equine campus and learn alongside industry experts.he BSc (Hons) Equine Performance Science course is aimed at those individuals who wish to support their interest in the equine athlete, with a robust grounding in scientific principles relevant to the industry. The equine athlete is a complex creature, with supporting needs that address the way in which the animal is managed, to maximise performance in a range of diverse disciplines. There are very many branches to this support, as there would be for a human athlete, covering elements such as nutrition, equitation science, training, health and disease, managing gait abnormalities, the influence of extrinsic factors such as coaching the rider, saddle fit, behaviour, farriery and many more.This programme aims to provide the student with a thorough understanding of all of the possible contributors to performance, from a micro to macro level; thus enabling the individual to contribute positively to equine performance. Developing a thorough scientific understanding, combined with the ability to apply that knowledge practically, will enable the individual to take a proactive role in the industry following graduation. Writtle's approach of 'science into practice' is never more evident than in this programme; developing excellent communication skills will be key to the graduate prospects for students who have undertaken this award.
