Learners are expected to have a certain amount of prior knowledge of musculoskeletal anatomy and general physiology of horses. Learners will also need access to cases for course work so should be a working therapist or in employment/ volunteer position at either a veterinary practice or a rehabilitation centre.
Learning delivery and time allocation
The Diploma is online and can be studied from anywhere in the world. Learners will need to have access to horses and will be required to submit videos of some of the practical elements.
The Diploma is part time and with an average study time of 10/15 hours per week, can be completed in as little as one year. Each unit can be completed in 10/15 weeks; however, learners can choose to study at their own pace. The learning time comprises studying course material, completing tasks, carrying out further reading and own research, and completion of the assessments.
The final grade for the diploma comprises grades from the individual units along with practical assessment of clinical skills and submission of two case studies.
Learners are guided through the units and lessons and are also required to study independently. Learners have access to discussion forums where they can connect with their fellow students – and this is encouraged. Learners are also assigned a tutor, who will be available for help if and when it is needed.
