Running for the first time from April-June 2014, the new 10 week postgraduate Equitation science course at the University of Edinburgh has just been completed by 22 distance learning students.Some students took this course as part of their taught course programme working towards their MSc in Equine Science, whilst others took it as a standalone Postgraduate Professional Development course.
‘’I really enjoyed the discussion boards, the rich content in the lectures and the diversity of perspectives provided during the course’’ (Samantha Jones)
‘’Wish we could have a whole year of this subject, or a second module...Great and varied teachers’’ (Jennifer Ott)
‘’I love how we learned about learning theory and general equitation science and then went through how it is applied under different circumstances within the equine industry. I felt the assessments were very applicable andchallenging and provided room for further learning during the course as well as inspiring learning outside of the course. I also thoroughly enjoyed receiving constructive criticism and clarifying questions from not just the professors, but also my classmates. In general, I thought the class was well structured, enjoyable, and challenging. I'm sad it's over’’ (Emily Kieson)
