About this course

This two year programme offers you the opportunity to pursue a specialist interest in the field of equine behaviour. The course covers a range of practical and theoretical modules in anatomy and physiology, nutrition, health, as well as the specialist behaviour modules where you will develop your knowledge and understanding of the academic theory underpinning the natural behaviour of the horse, incorporating principles of ethology and psychology and the application of this to training and husbandry procedures. The course structure follows the first two years of the BSc (Hons) Equine Behaviour making it very easy to progress straight onto this course following successful completion of the Dip HE in Equine Behaviour.

A unique feature of this programme is the integration of the Society of Equine Behaviour Consultants (SEBC) Professional Training Completion of the DipHE covers approximately two thirds of the training required for this professional certificate, and topping up to the BSc (Hons) Equine Behaviour will lead to full completion (subject to passing the final exam)
