Facilities

There is a variety of facilities available to support postgraduate work in this area. We have access to an excellent range of sport and leisure horses, riders and equestrian facilities. We have close links with the wider equine industry and are situated very close to Newmarket, the home of horse racing, and we also have access to free-ranging Konik ponies.

    The IELTS – or the International English Language Test System – tests your English-language abilities (writing, listening, speaking, and reading) on a scale of 1.00–9.00. The minimum IELTS score requirement refers to which Overall Band Score you received, which is your combined average score. Read more about IELTS.
