About this course


Course option

2.0years

Distance learning (with some attendance) | 2020

This new, innovative and dynamic diploma course, running in conjunction with the School of Health Sciences at the University of Central Lancashire is accessible, flexible, progressive and professionally recordable and will fill a niche in Farriery education provision. It has been structured in such a way that will facilitate both the personal and professional development of qualified Farriers and positively assist those who are returning to academic work.

The nature of the course, having both a theoretical and clinical perspective, necessitates access to practice of at least 12 weeks annually for the duration of the course. Students are also expected to attend for 2 study days per month from September to May.

In addition, students on the course will be offered the opportunity to take the Train the Training Farrier Award (TTFA) course as a free additional qualification between years one and two of the programme which will enhance their coaching and mentoring skills and encourage them to become approved training farriers (ATFs).

Modules

Essential Study, IT and Research Skills (half module); Applied Anatomy and Physiology (half module); Farriery Protocols; Modern Approaches to Farriery; Pathophysiology of the Equine Limb; Lameness Assessment and Diagnostic Imaging of the Equine Lower Limb; Farriery Clinical Case Studies

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.
