Mark Nolan FdSc in Equine Management Student

FdSc in Equine Management “Prior to attending CAFRE I already had a knowledge of the equine industry and I knew it was an area which I would like to pursue as a career. I chose CAFRE due to the emphasis on practical work which develops skills at an appropriate level for working in the industry. I really enjoy the practical elements of the course and have learnt new methods and theories in relation to horse training. I have become increasingly interested in the Thoroughbred industry and have ridden the college’s horses in training every morning and have attended race meetings. Studying at CAFRE has allowed me to develop new contacts, which will benefit my career/employment in the future. The Foundation degree has allowed me to progress to second year of the BSc (Hons) programme and I am looking forward to studying and becoming involved with the breeding unit.”
