You will undertake a number of interesting and relevant trips and visits as part of your equine degree programme. These include a range of equine enterprises, veterinary centres and specialist conferences. Some visits may be free, but others will incur a charge varying with the nature of the visit and the distance travelled. Such charges will be kept to a reasonable rate, and may include a contribution payment from £5 upwards to cover part of the cost.

All foundation degree students have a commitment to undertake work based learning during their programme, both weekly at the college's equine centre and in the equine industry on placement, collectively providing a vocational opportunity for developing essential practical and academic skills. Students are expected to find their own placements at a related industry and a minimum of 80 hours on placement must be completed in the first year.

As part of your work experience module, you will need to be available on either Saturday 3 October or Sunday 4 October to complete your compulsory British Eventing Horse Trials day.

The college has a strict policy in place when approving work placements – students must not commence placement until they have received notification of approval by the college.
