One year part-time
The Postgraduate Certificate Equestrian Performance and Rehabilitation will provide you with the opportunity to further explore and develop knowledge of applied subjects specifically focused on maintaining, enhancing and restoring performance within equestrian athletes. The content of core modules which include Therapy and Rehabilitation of the Equine Athlete and Applied Equine Exercise Physiology will enable successful graduates to appreciate and evaluate the interaction between the physiology of exercise and the principles behind rehabilitating the sports horse.
Within these and optional modules such as Rider Performance, students can gain hands-on experience of modern technology, including gait analysis and electromyography equipment, which is often used to assess performance. Experience of these types of technology could develop valuable skills for future career aspirations. Overall the PG Cert aims to increase your knowledge and understanding of how Equine Science can maximise performance, increase career length, and aid in selection of the performance horse.
The Postgraduate Certificate Equestrian Performance and Rehabilitation can be completed full-time in one year. On successful completion of the PG Certificate, graduates have the opportunity to progress to the PG Diploma Equine Science and then on to MSc Equine Science or directly on to the MSc Equine Science. The PG Certificate, therefore, acts as an ideal transition to postgraduate study for those who may not be in a position to go straight on to a full Masters programme.
The taught modules within the equine postgraduate provision are delivered via weekend study blocks to help you to fit study alongside your career and/or personal commitments.
