We are a highly focused institution teaching animal science, equine science, agriculture, sports science, and applied business management. We offer learning opportunities at Bachelor’s and Master’s levels, as well as research/PhD programs.
Our campus continues to benefit from ongoing financial investment. We regularly stage world-class equestrian events and, in 2018, also hosted our first-ever Rugby Union international fixture. Many professional sports teams and athletes make use of our facilities.
