Learning

The variety and quality of educational courses available in Ireland is second to none, with illustrious graduates to the fore in every corner of the global thoroughbred industry.

Ireland has a strong education network and is an ideal location to study all facets of equine care and management. There are over twenty educational institutes offering students the opportunity to study everything from Equine Care and Management right through to Veterinary Science.

Graduates of these courses have gone on to hold positions at the top of their profession all over the world. Many have progressed to the highest level as Jockeys, Trainers, Stud Managers, Vets, Bloodstock Agents, Auctioneers, Media personalities and Insurance brokers.

Some examples of the Equine courses on offer in Ireland include the world renowned Racing Academy & Centre of Education (RACE) as well as the Irish National Stud Management Course and the Darley Flying Start.

Every year we welcome International students wishing to enhance their knowledge and experience. While some of the courses offered are based on obtaining a University Degree, not all courses are completely classroom based, with scholarships and apprenticeships also available.
