More about Abbi
“The BSc Equine Sport Science course at Nottingham Trent University has a great reputation and the content is interesting and inspiring. During the open day I attended the staff were very welcoming during their talks. Everyone is so friendly and the campus is beautiful- what more could you want!
“The course focuses on looking at the horse as an athlete and the equine industry surrounding it, from learning how a horse’s body functions and its behaviour and welfare, to debating the ethics surrounding current issues within equestrianism. The course covers a wide variety of content with the option to tailor the course to your interests with chosen modules.
“I have enjoyed furthering my knowledge of equine anatomy and physiology as well as other modules such as equine sports injury and equine disease and diagnostics. One aspect I particularly enjoyed was creating a research proposal within a small group and carrying out the research and presenting our findings to the class, with some interesting results!
“This course is always keeping up to date with recent research and events, which keeps it interesting and relevant whilst still teaching the core elements. Brackenhurst campus is an amazing place to study with fantastic facilities from the library to the equine centre and the staff are always keen to help.
“Being a student at NTU is great and I have loved every minute of it. Brackenhurst always has such a welcoming feeling to it and everyone gets on well with each other. The social side of Brackenhurst is great with its own bar and SU- you can also go to City or Clifton which are also amazing. There is so much to do from sports teams to societies as well as great SU nights.
“In first year I was part of the NTU Panthers- Brackenhurst’s cheerleading team- which was a fantastic experience and I had so much fun. In second year I joined the Brackenhurst Entertainment Committee which is responsible for organising all the events at the SU throughout the year, coming up with unique ideas and new nights to cater to everyone’s preferences. I plan on joining it again when I am back for my final year."
