At Nottingham Trent University we dare to do things a little bit differently.

We offer equine courses at college, undergraduate and postgraduate level at our Brackenhurst Campus. 

We have everything you’d expect from a subject-specialist institution: 

  • an equestrian centre that’s a British Horse Society (BHS) approved training and livery establishment

  • a variety of stabling for up to 65 horses

  • a research arena

  • horse walker

  • performance analysis suite

  • international-sized indoor and outdoor arenas

  • our staff are engaged in internationally recognised research and our graduates take up careers across the equine industry. 

What makes us different though is that you’ll be part of something much larger. 

A multi-disciplinary university based in the thriving student city of Nottingham. Come to NTU, and you’ll be joining a university at the peak of its powers — a place with a worldwide reputation for excellence, which we’ve earned by daring to do things that little bit differently.

College Courses

Level 3 Extended Diploma in Equine Management

Kick-start your career with a college course. You’ll study equine science and practical stable management, preparing you for a career in the equine industry or further study. You’ll improve your riding skills as well as study towards the British Horse Society (BHS) examinations.

Undergraduate Degrees

BSc (Hons) Equine Sports Science

This course examines the sports science of horse and rider across varying equestrian disciplines. You’ll explore physiology, biomechanics, performance parameters and the interfaces between horse and rider and between the horse and its environment.

BSc (Hons) Equine Sports Science (with foundation year)

This integrated foundation year degree offers a unique gateway to our BSc course for those who currently don't meet the degree-level entry criteria. The foundation year acts as a launch pad, supporting you with the transition to university learning. 

Postgraduate Degrees

MSc / MRes Equine Performance, Health and Welfare

This course focuses on the recent advances in equine health and disease, sports horse nutrition, behaviour, ethics, exercise physiology, equitation science, and genetics in the context of enhancing equine performance, health and welfare.
