Interest in Land-Based Degrees Bucks National Trend

Posted on 28th November 2013 in Higher Education, General

Despite a back-drop of a national decline in applications for higher education, as reported by UCAS, interest in the land-based subjects offered by Hadlow College has increased compared to November 2012.

Re-branded in March 2013 as ‘the Rural University Experience’, the College’s higher education portfolio includes a range of programmes from animal conservation through to international agriculture, garden design and aquaculture.  In addition, new for 2014, is a programme in Sports Coaching offering progression from the already established Level 3 qualifications in Sport that the College runs.

Applications in majority of the areas of the curriculum have all shown positive growth, with significant interest in the animal management and equestrian degree programmes that are available, including the new degree in Equine Sports Therapy and Rehabilitation offered at the Royal Borough of Greenwich Equestrian Centre.  This centre, a partnership between the Royal Borough of Greenwich and Hadlow College, is part of the London 2012 Olympic legacy and has dedicated aqua-training, spa and rehabilitation equipment.
