Subject

Equine studies

The course focuses on the science behind the latest advances in the equine industry. The programme embeds key veterinary science modules such as Mammalian Biochemistry and Veterinary Microbiology and Immunology which allows graduates to access entry into a wide range of paraveterinary postgraduate courses and employment opportunities. The modules incorporate key laboratory skills which are developed during the degree course, and culminate in students having the opportunity to engage in collaborative projects with industry partners. The links with ‘live’ research projects and opportunities to use new enhanced scientific laboratory facilities creates a vibrant and well resourced environment for undertaking undergraduate dissertations. The route will prepare students for employment in broad fields within the equine industry including nutrition, stud work, performance management, para-veterinary, pharmaceutical sales and diagnostic laboratory work and equine research.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
