SEVEN REASONS WHY A SMALL campus MIGHT BE PERFECT FOR YOU 10


Have you considered that a smaller provider may suit you best? Have you ever heard the phrase ‘to be a big fish in a small pond’? Well, that’s exactly what you’ll represent at a small campus; your talents will shine, your voice will be heard, and you’ll know the friendly faces of your peers. So what if you could find a campus that offered the best of both worlds – great facilities AND a small cohort? At the BMC School of Higher Education, we do just that! Here’s our top seven reasons why a small campus might be better than a mega-uni: 1.

Reduced class sizes, so you can benefit from more contact time with lecturers.

2.

Lecturers with real-life industry experience and understanding, who are focused on the quality of your learning experience.

3.

Maximum access to industry standard equipment and facilities.

4.

Unlike the larger universities, some smaller providers will offer degrees at a lower price tag. For example, at BMC, tuition for our Undergraduate courses is as little as £7500 per year – in comparison to an average cost of £8354 at a traditional university. Yet you’ll leave with the same qualification!

5.

The opportunity to create closer, long-lasting bonds with everyone – not just with people studying the same degree as you, but with people from other course areas who have different interests, backgrounds and experiences, helping to shape you as a well-rounded individual.

6.

More focus on your individual health and wellbeing; rather than getting lost in the crowd, smaller providers can offer a calmer degree experience which, let’s face it, could be a blessing when your deadlines are approaching! They can also offer more personal attention from Student Services to help you with all your pastoral-care needs, from finance to mental health support.

7.

At a institution with fewer students, you matter more - it’s as simple as that. Knowing that you count can go a long way to helping you through your degree and on to a successful career. Lecturers and support staff can offer more support to get your journey into the world of work off to a flying start; from access to careers advisors, to invaluable contacts with key employers.

tessa smithson

bsc animal management graduate “I started at BMC 5 years ago doing my Level 3 Extended Diploma in Animal Management and I fell in love with the College, the facilities and the staff. I applied to numerous universities and was accepted into all of them; I actually left BMC for another university but three days into my degree I came back! I missed the College too much: BMC had become a home from home for me. The level of support that I received from the tutors was unbelievable and you honestly couldn’t get it from anywhere else. No matter how many times I asked a question or questioned my own capabilities, the tutors were there for me, motivating me and believing in me! They don’t just care about your grades, you are more than just a statistic to them. They constantly made sure we as students were okay and coping with the degree as well as helping with any problems I was facing outside of college. I have never experienced this level of support anywhere else. The modules within the degree were varied and I most enjoyed the Animal Rehabilitation and Education modules. The tutors taught these subjects fantastically and they were paired with practical sessions which helped my understanding. I also had the opportunity to visit South Africa twice, and both trips truly were life changing experiences that I wouldn’t have been able to have if it weren’t for BMC! I am currently studying my PGCE at BMC, and I work as a Training Officer in the Foundation department. My job is so rewarding and I love giving back what I received at BMC; not only is it a fantastic place to study but it’s also a wonderful place to work!”

Lydia Bradwell

HE Development Lead and lecturer in Animal Management (Science and Welfare) BSc (hons) Animal Science Graduate Diploma in Teaching in the LifeLong Learning Sector Member of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers Independent Canine Trainer and Behaviourist “The best bit about my job is seeing students that I’ve worked with for three years standing on the stage in their cap and gown beaming with pride, knowing that they have worked so hard, been so dedicated and truly deserve to be there. I also love the small “family” feel of the programmes I teach on, meaning I get to know my students really well and am able to support them to the best of my ability and really release their potential. BMC is great for students as Brooksby is a beautiful campus with lots of unique features and hidden gems, particularly if you love your wildlife as I do! We have some really passionate and knowledgeable lecturers in the Animal Management team who love sharing their experiences with their classes, and the group sizes are smaller than big universities, so students get much more one-to-one time with lecturers”.

Molly Baxter

bsc equine performance science graduate “During my time at BMC I studied for my BSc in Equine Performance Science. I chose to study here as I wanted to stay close to home whilst still being able to attend a specialist college. I absolutely loved my time at BMC and wouldn’t change any of it. All my lecturers were incredibly knowledgeable and always available to help with everything and anything! BMC offered me so many opportunities which have helped to boost my CV. Things like volunteering with British Eventing, working in the Equine Rehabilitation Centre, running events and even riding in front of HRH Princess Anne! Rehabilitation and hydrotherapy were a particular interest of mine. Working closely with Vanessa Hardy (Brooksby Equine Rehabilitation Centre Coordinator) gave me the opportunity to gain experience in this area, which helped me to secure my first job in an Equine Hydrotherapy Centre. I am now working for Dodson & Horrell Ltd, a leading manufacturer in animal nutrition. When applying for this role, an essential criteria was to be educated to degree level in an animal subject. My degree has helped me in this role, especially on the subject of nutrition, as people ask me questions about this on a regular basis”.

BMC EQUINE LECTURERS PUBLISH TWO ARTICLES IN ACADEMIC JOURNAL! BMC Equine Lecturers, Melissa Rudd and Charlotte Farmer-Day, have published two journal articles in Comparative Exercise Physiology, a peer-reviewed academic journal. Working alongside renowned academics in the Equine industry, Dr David Marlin, Professor Hilary Clayton and Jane Williams (DPhil), they produced two papers detailing their research on stirrups. One paper focused on stirrup lengths chosen by novice and experienced riders, and the other used the results of a survey to explore the factors that influence riders’ choice of stirrup length. The latter even made it to Rome to be presented at the International Society for Equitation Science’s 14th International Conference. Melissa and Charlotte commented ‘We are very lucky to have worked with such prestigious academics, and would like to thank them for their support throughout the development of this research. Being able to research and produce journal articles means that we have strong links within the Equine industry and are able to lead in current scientific research processes, which keeps our lectures fresh and up-to-date. In addition, it puts us in a better place to aid our own students with their research in their undergraduate dissertations.’ Comparative Exercise Physiology is a quarterly journal published by Wageningen Academic Publishers. It is the only international peer-reviewed scientific journal to specifically focus on the latest research in exercise physiology across all animal species. Brooksby Melton College offers a range of Equine qualifications at the 850 acre Brooksby Campus, from Level 2 through to degree level. Students learn from industry-expert teaching staff and benefit from multi-million pound facilities, including a state-of-the-art commercial Equine Rehabilitation Centre featuring a water treadmill and solarium, two indoor arenas and two outdoor arenas.

Charlotte Farmer-Day Equine Science Lecturer BSc (Hons) Equine Science PGCE in Science with QTS MSc in Education

Charlotte predominantly teaches the science modules here at BMC. She has worked within the Equine industry from grassroots upwards, such as professional event grooming, including CCI*** ; as a work rider, breaking and schooling young and problem horses for owners or for sale; plus in Kenya working racehorses and retraining ex-racehorses to become eventers. Charlotte completed her BSc (Hons) Equine Science Degree, and enjoyed the science aspect of the course so much that she then pursued a career in science teaching in secondary school with her PGCE from Loughborough University, teaching Chemistry, Physics and Biology plus AS and A2 Biology. She continued her education by successfully completing her MSc with Merit. Her role at BMC draws together a fascination with science and satisfaction of teaching with a passion for horses and how they can perform to the maximum of their ability. She has particular research interest in competition, and selecting young event horses to predict their future elite performance. Through her Masters degree research, she has also investigated students’ individual learning styles. She is keen on racing, hunts regularly, and successfully competes her own horse. The small and friendly atmosphere at BMC is key to her enjoyment of her job, and means she can be flexible and adapt every one of her sessions to boost each and every student’s progression and happiness during their time here.

HRH THE PRINCESS ROYAL OFFICIALLY OPENS NEW EQUINE AND ANIMAL FACILITIES Brooksby Melton College was honoured to welcome back HRH The Princess Royal on Wednesday 13th May 2015, in order to officially open the Equine Rehabilitation Centre, as well as extensions to the Animal Care and Equestrian Centres. BMC’s Brooksby Campus, which is home to both the Animal Management Centre and Brooksby Equestrian Centre, has undergone significant developments. The Animal Management Centre has gone from strength to strength, enjoying a reputation for having some of the best animal care training facilities in the region. Its specialist, purpose-built animal care unit houses a huge range of animals, including exotic amphibians and reptiles. Our students work with a large variety of species, which means they are well-equipped to develop careers within the industry. Brooksby Equestrian Centre is a British Horse Society approved riding school, livery yard and competition centre in Leicestershire, with fantastic facilities including an indoor riding arena and outdoor floodlit arena with British Show Jumping approved jumps. During her visit, HRH The Princess Royal took a tour of the new Equine Rehabilitation Centre, and was treated to a demonstration of the various new technologies put in place since her last visit in 2012, including the Activo-Med water treadmill and Maxuss Solarium. The water treadmill offers both pressure and support for the horse’s limbs, tightening the core strength muscles and ligaments. The horses are able to lift their limbs higher and on a more vertical plane, increasing joint flexion and exaggerating the use of the back muscles. The Solarium provides heat energy, which penetrates the skin and stimulates the muscles by increasing blood circulation. This can be used by clients postcompetition to help the horses absorb blood sugars, and assist with the removal of waste products. The Princess Royal was also invited to observe a show-jumping lesson in the outdoor arena, as well as a grooming session in the dog grooming studio. Her Royal Highness was impressed with the facilities and the range of technologies on offer. She spent a great deal of time talking to staff and students, and was keen to find out how the equipment benefited both the animals health and the students education. Students were delighted to be given the opportunity to meet a member of The Royal Family and have their hard work recognised. Equine student Fahrran Griffiths explained: “She was very gracious and very down-to-earth, and was polite and welcoming. It was exciting to be a part of it and it’s something we’ll remember for the rest of our lives.”

ALISTAIR SMITH 46


BMC MANSFIELD TOWN ACADEMY STARS MAKE THEIR SENIOR DEBUT FOR THE FIRST TEAM! Three BMC students and one alumnus have made their MTFC first team debut, helping the team to secure a 3-2 win against Scunthorpe United in the Checkatrade Trophy competition. Nyle Blake (18), Alistair Smith (19) and Jason Law (19) were part of the starting line-up, with Tom Fielding (19) coming on later in the match. Nyle Blake, who completed his studies at BMC in 2018, contributed to the Stags’ victory by scoring in the first half. Alistair, Jason and Tom are part of the MTFC Academy programme at BMC, and are currently working towards their Foundation Degrees in Sports Science. Nyle, who is now a BMC alumnus, completed his Level 3 Sport qualification in 2018 as a part of the MTFC Academy programme at Brooksby Melton College. Alistair Smith commented, “I really enjoyed playing alongside the more experienced players at the club. They supported and guided me throughout the game, and my confidence grew as the game went on. To get a win on my debut was so pleasing, I just want to continue to develop and improve.” Former Academy Manager, and current MTFC Manager, John Dempster, added “It really was a fantastic evening for the football club. The MTFC Academy students that started the game and came off the bench performed brilliantly against the seasoned professionals that Scunthorpe United fielded. All of the Academy staff were very proud because a lot of hard work goes into developing the players on a daily basis at the Academy’s base at BMC’s Brooksby Campus.”

SPORT SCIENCE UNDERGRADUATES COMPLETE WORK EXPERIENCE AT LEICESTER TIGERS! Leicester Tigers invited some of our Sport Science Undergraduates to participate in a five-week work experience programme to learn what happens behind the scenes at the club! Work experience intern and BMC Tigers Development Team squad member, Jonjo French, shares his experiences of working at Welford Road working alongside the Tigers Communications team. “During my time in the Communications team at Welford Road, I learnt about the various duties within the team, such as management of the club’s social media channels. I also learnt and how the department work on matchdays, as well as other things the club does outside of rugby. The team tasked me to find out more about the other departments at the Club by interviewing my classmates, who were also taking part in the programme, to find out more about their experiences. Firstly, I interviewed my teammate Matthew Steward, who has been working alongside the Community team. The team help build and develop rugby in the community, and provide coaching around the world for clubs such as KL Tigers, Dendermonde Rugby Club and Delhi Hurricanes, as well as in the UK. Matt said ‘I’ve been learning about the roles of the Community staff, the types of camps Tigers run, and how the club can better the community. I’ve also learnt about how the Community team work with other clubs to provide more opportunities to play rugby and sport. It’s been really interesting to find out to gain further coaching qualifications that will hopefully help me throughout my career.” Next, I chatted to Kieran Rawlins, who was working with the Tigers’ Events team. Not being a local lad, Kieran, who was born in Bedworth, Nuneaton has followed Tigers over the years and praises the club’s culture and set-up. Reflecting on his time at Welford Road, he said: “I’ve been helping out with organising events at the club, organising Christmas parties and learning about international ticket sales.” As a fellow BMC Development Team squad member, he added ‘I would definitely recommend going to Brooksby Melton College, as it’s a fantastic way of gaining practical experience – like the opportunity to work here at Welford Road – as well as qualifications. It never gets boring as I always have something different to do every week.’ Lastly, I spoke to another BMC teammate, Ben Sanderson, who joined the Corporate Sales team over the five weeks. He explained: ‘I’ve been learning about the different supporter matchday experiences, such as hospitality boxes and also organising corporate events. I even joined in one meeting which was all about how Leicester Tigers works with businesses to support each other’s needs, as well as how the club makes new business contacts.’ On the pitch at BMC, Ben added: “I’m enjoying playing rugby at a high level, like the AASE league and the county, which will hopefully help my development. During my time here, I have really enjoyed working alongside the media team and have gained a lot of knowledge about what goes on behind the scenes at Tigers.”

nicholas sidiras Bsc sports science GRADUATE Last year, Nicholas Sidiras received the cross college Principals Choice Award for his outstanding standard of academic work and contribution to the College. Nick secured a First-Class Honours degree in Sports Science and achieved over 80% in several modules. Due to an excellent performance in his summative assessment in front of the Mansfield Town FC Coaches, where he provided feedback on their team’s nutrition, he was given the opportunity to support the club in an extended work placement. Whilst on work placement he was able to develop a number of strategies to improve sports science at the club, and was offered a permanent position.

James Thorne

Head of Faculty (Higher education, Quality, Sport, Equine, Construction)

‘Sport was my passion growing up, from rugby to golf, cricket to tennis. I enjoyed the concept of using mental intelligence and physical ability to achieve goals or successes. However, sport also provided me with many important life skills that played a significant role in my education and subsequent career path. Communication, respect, determination, leadership, dedication, and teamwork were all vital skills that I gained from sport that helped me to achieve my career to date. In my current role as Head of Faculty, I use these characteristics daily to lead staff in ensuring students are having a first-class experience and are ready for further studies or employment when leaving BMC. I am inspired daily by the success stories of our students and what they go on to achieve. This reflects a team environment where students work closely with passionate and motivated staff and, together, they succeed. Staff at BMC are invested in their students and, due to the small nature of the college, it provides a community feel where staff and students know and support each other - creating a fantastic and exciting learning and working environment. Our School of Higher Education provides students with relevant and current knowledge for industry, but uniquely delivers many aspects in a vocational method, which serves to strengthen students’ employability skills. There are a number of opportunities to gain internships whilst studying here at BMC, including with employers such as Leicester Tigers.’

LAURA WHEAT BA Performing Arts graduate “The five years I spent at BMC were truly invaluable to me and shaped me into the person I am today. I made friends for life in both my peers and tutors and learnt so much more about the industry than I could have anticipated. Not only did I finish my degree as a confident performer, but I also learnt skills that have allowed me to pursue other areas of the industry such as Stage Management, Directing and Devising Performance. I was given opportunities to perform at some of the most prestigious venues across the country and will be forever grateful for these experiences. Since graduating from the college a year ago, I have moved to London, gained an agent and continued to develop my skills as a performer. I have also been accepted to attend the NYT Epic Stages course this summer, an opportunity I feel extremely lucky to receive. I have no doubt that it was my training at the college that helped me to achieve this success, as the support and guidance I received from tutors was exceptional�.

BMC alumni, Norton James and Joshua Lloyd, have performed in ‘The Choir of Man’ at the iconic Sydney Opera House The Choir of Man centres on English pub life and features an array of pop, choral, opera, and Broadway tunes, including songs from Adele, Queen, Guns’n’Roses and more. Norton and Joshua both studied Level 4 Performing Arts (Musical Theatre) at the college. Cat Webb, Performing Arts Lecturer at BMC, said “We are so proud of Chris and Josh! As students at BMC they were always very hard working. Their hard work has clearly paid off, and we couldn’t be more excited for them touring and performing in some of the biggest and most iconic venues in the world!” Joshua said “The three years I had at BMC proved invaluable for the next step in my career, which was attending stage school at Mountview Academy Of Theatre Arts. I have also taken so much of what I learned at BMC with me through my career – BMC not only provided me with a high level of practical knowledge in Performing Arts, it also helped me to discover who I am as a person. This was all in addition to the amazing staff and atmosphere at BMC - it feels like a family, which helps to support students and get the best out of them”. After graduating from BMC, Norton trained at Performance Preparation Academy in Guildford before embarking on a varied and successful career in the performing arts industry, with notable credits including Sir Galahad in Monty Python’s Spamalot and Ellwood in Blues Brothers (Italian Tour). He also appeared as Chris Pratt’s body double in Guardians of the Galaxy.

KUDEGRA PRODUCTIONS James Hazeldine ‘I decided to study Digital Film Production at BMC because I have always had an interest in films and how they’re made, and the course at BMC looked exciting and interesting. Having studied at BMC since 2012, we have witnessed the huge improvement in facilities and equipment over the years. When we started we were using basic video tapes but, by the time we graduated with our degrees in 2017, the equipment had evolved to include a green screen and a black magic camera! As well as learning to use a wide range of equipment, I also learnt other valuable skills from my time at BMC, such as how to pitch to external clients, how to juggle several projects at once, and how to adapt and communicate effectively when working with fellow students. BMC helped us to develop the skills, confidence and working relationships that we needed to start Kudegra Productions. Jai and I have always enjoyed working together on projects, and we are now enjoying the challenges and rewards of running our own business, including securing projects, interacting with clients, and having the freedom to create and use new, innovative ideas. For example, we recently videoed a wedding where we spontaneously decided to use a hyperlapse technique to capture what the venue looked like throughout the day, which allowed us to create a truly unique wedding video for our clients. My advice to future Digital Film Production students is to find out what you do well and collaborate with people who specialise in different areas, so that you can work together as a team to be successful.’

Jai Masters ‘After leaving school at 16, I did a year of A Levels before deciding to come to BMC. I decided to study Digital Film Production because I always enjoyed film editing and the idea of bringing various film shots together into one coherent piece. I really enjoyed the Level 3 course, and film production was my ideal career choice, so I decided to continue at BMC to study the BA (Hons) Digital Film Production Degree. The Professional Project that we completed in our final degree year really helped us to develop the technical and communication skills that we needed to start Kudegra Productions, as we were required to take on various production and post-production roles in order to create a short film. The opportunity to enter the ‘Enter the Pitch’ competition during every year of the degree also helped us to grow our professional pitching skills, which will really help with Kudegra Productions going forward. My advice for future Digital Film Production students would be to work with people that you can rely on and work well with.’

If you wish to enrol on a Higher Education course, you can apply for Higher Education loans to cover your tuition fees and help towards your living costs. The main types of finance available are Tuition Fee Loans and Maintenance Loans (which have to be paid back) and bursaries (which don’t). The amount you will be eligible for depends on your income and that of your household. Paying Your Tuition Fees Tuition Fees are to be paid on your first day of study; either by Student Finance or yourself, if you are financing your studies. If you are applying for a Student Loan for 2020/21, you will be able to do this from February/March 2020. To cover the costs of studying, you can apply for: • • • •
