What our students, graduates and staff say

My advice would be to take your time when deciding what to study and find something that you know you’ll be able to enjoy till the end. After high school I had no idea what I wanted to do and it took me a few years to work it out but it was worth it in the end to find a course I enjoy. This was the right course for me as I find business a subject I actually enjoy learning more about and it will help me in achieving my goal of running my own business.

Sean Frame, BA (Hons) Business and Management student, Thurso campus

The course helped me develop people, equine and business skills, which are useful in my current role working at a riding centre in the Highlands. In terms of careers and employment, there are many jobs in the equine industry that require the skills that this university course offers.

Catherine Duthie, BA (Hons) Equine Business Management graduate, Halkirk campus

Thanks to the Professional Golf degree I'm able to develop my industry knowledge whilst playing for the university’s golf team. My favourite thing is having the time to play golf while enhancing the practical skills required to work as a golf professional.
