Equine and Veterinary Bioscience

Equine Science and Veterinary Bioscience at Aberystwyth means studying the biology of the horse in such a way as to provide you with the underpinning veterinary medicine and scientific theory of this magnificent animal. This includes how its nutrition, welfare and care for maximum performance and its management in relation to reproduction, exercise physiology, behaviour and wellbeing. It does not provide recognised training for those wishing to practise as a veterinary surgeon, but may provide graduates with a suitable pathway to a veterinary medicine degree programme.

And if that is not enough, here’s why we think Aber is a great place to study Equine and Veterinary Bioscience:

  • Superb teaching and research facilities including state of the art labs
  • Internationally renowned passionate teaching staff who are experts in their fields
  • A fantastic equine centre with Olympic size indoor arena, all-weather manège, round pen, horse walker and livery facilities
  • A stunning coastal location with miles of unspoilt beaches to gallop upon a few miles from the equine centre!
  • Opportunities for work experience, foreign exchanges, internships, bursaries and training towards BHS exams all within a multi-award winning Institute environment
