Writtle College is one of the oldest providers of specialist equine study and research in the UK and is known for its innovative and pioneering approach to course development. Postgraduate opportunities for equine professionals are developed through close liaison with successful figures in industry and academic experts at the University of Essex.

Postgraduate study programmes

Topic areas can be pursued by research, leading to an MSc, MPhil or PhD. For example in the case of the MSc Equine Science by research this would involve undertaking a major student-managed research project. The department would strongly encourage any postgraduate student who wished to undertake an award by research.

Equine research programmes

Postgraduate teaching in the Equine department is supported by a number of ongoing research programmes, which are coordinated through the College's Centre for Equine and Animal Science and in collaboration with other institutions. Research has focused on the improvement of the welfare, breeding and management of the horse through the application of sound scientific research principles.
