5 Agriculture & others in veterinary sciences, agriculture & related subjects reviews at Aberystwyth University
Countryside Management and Conservation, FdSc
Extremely happy with the course. The only downside is that a module each semester isn't really to do with the course and is either agricultur based or its basically study abd communication to teach you about basic IT
Equine Studies, FdSc
The staff are all really friendly and encouraging and the course covers a wide range of topics, from nutrition to exercise science. A lot of the lecturers are renowned experts in their field and their books and research is used across the world. The course caters well for all abilities, whether you're a complete beginner or have loads of experience your time here will be tailored to you personally so you get the most out of it that you can. The only issues I can think of are 1.) the timetabling - in your first year you have yard work in the mornings, with only 20 mins to get from the yard to the main campus. You often won't finish on time and if you're walking it takes at least 25 minutes, possibly 20 if you power walk, so you tend to be late for morning lectures. 2.) in your second and third years, unless you choose the equitation module, you don't get any riding as part of the course. This means you have to pay for lessons, and at £20 for 30 mins on a student budget, it's expensive.
