Equine Science Lecturer, Abingdon and Witney College. Course leader Foundation Degree Equine Science and Management. Lecturing on the BSc, FDSc and ND equine courses.

"I chose Aberystwyth initially to study the HND and eventually completed my studies 5 years later with the BSc (Hons) and MSc. The university’s reputation as an excellent institute is widely acknowledged. The MSc programme combines up-to-date scientific teaching by lecturers with extensive research backgrounds with a valuable dissertation project.

I thoroughly enjoyed studying the MSc at Aber. As well as providing me with a vast quantity of scientific knowledge it taught me how to write scientifically, how to research thoroughly, how to give seminars successfully and how to manage my time effectively. Aber provides an interesting and challenging course that is highly regarded in the industry.

Since graduating from Aber I moved straight into teaching. I currently lecture on 3 courses, of varying levels, including nutrition, genetics and reproductive physiology. Alongside lecturing I am completing a teaching qualification as well as collaborating on research projects with Oxford Brookes University. The MSc at Aber has been invaluable at preparing me for my chosen career."
