Support for students studying Equine Science and Management
We understand that going into full-time or part-time education can have a big effect on people's lives. There may be a lot of questions you want to ask before you start on a course, and there may be times during your studies when you will want to seek information and advice from a reliable source.
Abingdon and Witney College has a dedicated independent team of advice and guidance staff for the benefit of both students and would-be students. Available throughout the year, they provide information, advice and confidential support services for all students. They are there to enable you to make informed decisions about your studies, and to help you deal with any difficulties which may arise.
Abingdon and Witney College has been a leading provider of equine courses since 1971, and enjoys an international reputation for both its practical and managerial education and training. Witney Stud Farm, based at Common Leys, gives students a unique first-hand opportunity to become immersed in the day-to-day working routine of a thoroughbred stud and equestrian centre and to participate in real-life equine business enterprises.
While most of the theory elements of the programme are taught at the Witney campus, students are able to gain extensive practical experience at the stud farm. In addition to the new land-based facilities, more stabling and additional practical teaching areas have been created to enhance the pre-training and equitation provision.
From academic advisers and support co-ordinators to specialist subject librarians and other learning support staff, we want to ensure that you get the best out of your studies.
We want your time at Brookes to be as enjoyable and successful as possible. That's why we provide all the facilities you need to be relaxed, happy and healthy throughout your studies.
