Equine Degree Interviews 

For all courses involving horse riding modules, entry is subject to an evaluation of your riding ability and fitness levels. It is usual that we have a weight limit of 16 stone for these elements of the course.

For Equine Sports Management interviewees only:

Please bring with you an British Kite-marked riding hat, jodhpurs / breeches, boots (long or short), body protector and gloves. If you do not have these items please contact us before your interview day. You will be expected to ride two horses on the flat and jump over some small fences.

If you have been invited for an equine programme other than FdSc Sports Management, you will not be required to undertake a riding assessment at interview.

Please confirm your attendance via UCAS, by ‘accepting’ the interview. If you are unable to attend this date please reply on UCAS by ‘requesting another interview date’ and we will book you into the next available slot.
