What students say

Name: Louise
Course: Horse Management

Louise came to Warwickshire College for a taster day and was hooked. She said: “The staff are lovely and I think I had the best tutor ever. It is a top-quality course and you are well supported throughout it. Besides the course, one of the best things about college is the new friends you make — you have a great social life.”

Name: Emma
Course: BSc (Hons) Sport Science (Equine and Human)

Emma completed her BSc (Hons) at Warwickshire College and also undertook an additional placement year, which she spent working at a riding school and livery yard. Emma is now doing a masters degree at Nottingham Trent University. Emma says: “I thoroughly enjoyed my degree. I stayed at Moreton Morrell as a residential student and the centre had a real community feel. I especially enjoyed being able to bring my own horse, Sam, to the college and have him stabled just a few minutes away from where I was staying. The staff were friendly and incredibly helpful, especially when it came to writing my dissertation.”
