The ResM is a postgraduate degree awarded by Plymouth University. It is delivered in Cornwall and has full-time and part-time routes. The research at the heart of the ResM programme is tailored to individual interests and commonly involves working with an industry partner.
In common with other postgraduate research degrees, the ResM culminates in the examination of a thesis based on a period of extended research. Two taught modules equip you with the appropriate level of research skills. The ResM is delivered through the Duchy College node – a research node of Plymouth University’s School of Biological and Marine Sciences. All ResM students are supervised by Cornwall College staff based at the Duchy Stoke campus. Students are co-supervised by Plymouth University staff.
You will study the exciting and contemporary academic discipline of equitation science. We will help you to advance and expand your knowledge of the science underpinning equitation. You will quickly generate an understanding of the importance of the multidisciplinary approach needed when studying equitation science.
The programme allows those with a good understanding of equine science to further develop and focus their skills. Increasingly, highly trained and skilled scientists to assist in the development and understanding of equitation science are needed. In addition there is a strong need within the equine industry for the dissemination of emerging theory to inform the practice of those involved with horses, in particular their training and welfare. As a ResM graduate you will be able to safeguard the welfare and enhance the safety of horses, riders and handlers, regardless of discipline.
Your ability to secure employment as a scientific advisor, researcher and advanced practitioner within industry, will be greatly enhanced by completing the ResM qualification. Full and partial fees bursaries may be available, please contact Dr Peter McGregor for more information and eligibility criteria on 0330 123 2523 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
