I chose to study Equine Science and Thoroughbred Management at Oxford Brookes because the course here is the only one of its kind. It is the most scientific course in its field in the country and offers exciting opportunities, such as international placements and a mentoring panel that includes some of the thoroughbred industry’s leading business people.
I also chose Oxford Brookes because I felt that they understood students and their needs much better than other universities I visited.
During my time at Oxford Brookes I joined the lacrosse team and I am thoroughly enjoying learning a new sport, being part of a team and meeting new people.
The student support co-ordinators have been brilliant in helping me study a free language module. They are always friendly and quick to respond to my emails. I have also used the careers centre to check my CV; their advice was invaluable.
