Research and our partnership with UoN You’re here to make a difference. And we’re here to support you in doing just that. Research forms an integral part of all our Higher Education courses and you’ll be encouraged to share your findings on your industry’s most important topics.

Our most recent research includes the following:

E  quine Sofia – BSc (Hons) Equine Therapies Research title Effects of Rider Heart Rate on Stress Parameters in College and Livery Yard Environments. Why this research is important today The impact of the rider on horse performance is becoming an increasingly popular subject, particularly in terms of performance optimisation. This research has the leverage to be used to improve understanding of endurance, and with high horse stress levels leading to poor performance more generally, could inform all disciplines.

Jasmine, BSc (Hons) Equine Therapies Research title The Effects of Rider Weight on Hind Limb Stride Length in Trot. Why this research is important today Concern around rider weight is a topical issue, particularly in the Show Industry, with research already being pioneered by notable figures including Dr Sue Dyson. The research undertaken at Moulton will play an important part in expanding this knowledge.

Aqua Treadmills The Equine Hydrotherapy Working Group, put together by members of Moulton’s Equine Therapy Centre recently published an official document on the safe use of Aqua Treadmills for horses. The guide, which is endorsed by British Equestrian (BEF) is the brainchild of the Group, founded at College in June 2019. The publication of this document is a huge step for the industry. Read more about this exciting development on our website news page. mouse-pointer www.moulton.ac.uk/about/latest-news 6

Sport Harry, BSc (Hons) Sports Therapy Research Title An investigation into physiotherapists’ personal experiences using psychological intervention techniques during rehabilitation on athletes. Key findings The findings from this study provide a fascinating insight into the ways that physiotherapists have portrayed their experience using psychological intervention techniques in their practice. It’s evident how important physiotherapists consider the application of psychological intervention techniques when dealing with injured athletes. Why this research is important today Athletes go through a range of psychological emotions when they are injured, especially professionals. This research is important to demonstrate the intervention strategy methods physiotherapists can use to support an athlete’s well-being.

Phoebe, BSc (Hons) Sports Performance and Coaching Research Title Which Gender Dyad has the Best Coach-Athlete Relationship? Summary Closeness, commitment and complimentarity are the three constructs that mirror the constituents of the coach’s and the athlete’s emotions, thoughts and behaviours, making the 3 C’s. Coach educators and researchers must identify and understand the sociological issues that coaches find challenging. This research was to see which gender dyad had the best coach-athlete relationship. Why this research is important today The topic of coach-athlete relationship is always evolving. This is an area which continues to be of interest to generate a positive coach-athlete relationship.

Animal Rosie, BSc (Hons) Applied Zoology Research title The population ecology of native newt species on a farm in Bedfordshire. Summary Rosie decided to conduct her research on her home farm, investigating newt populations to understand the quality of their habitat in her own back yard. Amphibians are indicator species and the rise or fall in numbers can be used to identify habitat quality. Key findings Working with her tutor – a protected species license holder, Rosie captured newts throughout the breeding season, recorded their details and released them. This research to date has included over 450 capture events, with Rosie identifying the animals from digital pictures to record the number of recaptures. Findings so far show that smooth newts appear to be using both of the farm ponds while the European protected great crested newts have been found in only one of them!

Martha, 2020 graduate (first class honours) Research title The effects of conservation feeders on bird community composition. Why this research is important today Farmland bird numbers are in serious decline. Whilst there is plenty to show that supplementary feeding works in gardens, there is minimal research to show the effects of supplementary feeding for woodland or farmland birds. It’s important for research to be conducted in this area, to show which methods of conservation are most effective.p ahead of the competition.

Lecturer Profile

Meet Nicola, one of our lecturers in Applied Animal Studies and Applied Zoology. I’ve spent over 20 years working with animals and learnt more than I could ever have imagined just by being out in the field. Having worked for almost a decade as a zookeeper and on placements in sanctuaries in Cornwall and Kenya, I gained a masters in Wildlife Biology and Conservation. I spent further time presenting and working internationally in Asia, North America and Africa. In my previous role, I was Director at Animals Asia’s China Bear Rescue Centre, where I oversaw a large international team rescuing bears from the bile industry. These experiences have shaped not only who I am on a personal level, but my teaching at a professional level too.

I’m passionate about animal welfare and conservation, using the lessons I’ve learnt in industry to offer my students a new perspective as well as an insider view into real life conservation. Getting real life experience is a key part of the learning process, as well as establishing a strong theoretical foundation. This is why this degree plays an essential role in kick starting our students’ careers.

Alumni Profile Meet Ashley, BSc (Hons) Applied Zoology, 2020 graduate.

Ashley studied his course full-time whilst working part-time as an Animal Welfare Technician at the College. I decided to study this degree as I wanted to further my knowledge of today’s conservation challenges, and the things I can do to help preserve our ecosystems.

I chose Moulton for its rural environment, and the modules on offer really appealed to my interests. Throughout the course I enjoyed getting involved in discussions and friendly debates, and I really liked being in smaller classes. We had the opportunity to go on a range of trips, collecting data and observing the real world. I’m so grateful to my lecturers, who were committed to spending extra time with me if I needed to understand something better. Their support was invaluable. Since graduating I’m back working at the College as a Technician full-time, and I’ve just started a masters degree as I’m keen to continue learning!

Alumni Profile Meet Martha, BSc (Hons) Applied Animal Studies, 2020 graduate.

I’ve always liked animals – my family home is full of pets, so it’s all I’ve grown up to know! My primary interest is in conservation, and I’m eager to preserve the planet’s most fragile ecosystems for future generations (of animals, and humans!) to enjoy.

Being at Moulton and studying this course has been an incredible experience, and I’m glad I made the decision to enrol. I thoroughly enjoyed progressing through each year. The course itself became more interesting and philosophical as we discussed and tackled concepts such as animal ethics and issues surrounding conservation. Originally I didn’t want to come to university, but the unique offer at Moulton made my decision to study here pretty easy. During my time at Moulton I learnt a lot from the excellent lecturers and gained an unexpected passion for ecology. I would recommend anyone interested in pursuing a career in conservation and/or animal care to enrol on a course at Moulton College. You’ll get out of it a lot more than you might think. Thanks to my time at Moulton I have gained confidence in myself and am hoping to apply for a Masters Degree in Conservation Biodiversity/Ecology.

Alumni Profile Meet Kattie, Education Enrichment Assistant at Woburn Safari Park.

Studied BSc (Hons) Applied Zoology, 2019 graduate. “My current role is so varied - I could be teaching groups on how to give enrichment activities to the meerkats and lemurs or taking guests on VIP experiences walking the elephants through miles of parkland. I might run sessions showing children (and adults!) how to build a bug hotel or helping them to identify plant and invertebrate species. I can honestly say that I love my job. It’s so rewarding to educate our visitors about different species and watch them get inspired to do what they can to help save the world’s most endangered animals.

I wouldn’t be in the role that I am without studying at Moulton. I had a fantastic experience at College. Learning through a combination of theory and practical worked well for me and I’ve been able to apply all the many skills I learnt at College in my role at Woburn. I’m indebted to my tutors for all of their support.

Lecturer Profile

Meet Steve, one of our lecturers in Construction. Having worked in both the construction and education sector for over 30 years, I have a clear vision for addressing the difficulties of today and the challenges of tomorrow across the construction sector. I have held varied senior management positions in both the construction and further education sectors. From my humble beginnings as a Royal Marine I then undertook a bricklaying apprenticeship for my introduction into the construction industry.

In addition to my experience of working within education and training, I founded and grew a multi–million pound Construction Company overseeing the construction of several hospitals, schools and housing projects. My passion lies with employers to deliver high quality training solutions for the future, supporting economic prosperity within the construction industry. I have been the subject lead of Construction Management and Civil Engineering in the School of the Built Environment since 2019. The way that construction is organised, managed and procured has a significant impact on our environment. My teaching, research and professional activities are focused on this and around a determination to make a difference to the built environment and sectors that we serve.

ALUMNI

Alumni Profile Meet Andrew, Assistant Employer’s Agent at Longhurst Group.

Studied HND Construction Management, 2020 graduate. I came across Moulton College whilst working at Longhurst Group, and was offered to take on an apprenticeship.

It was a great opportunity for me to gain the theoretical knowledge in the classroom which I could then apply to real situations back at work. Having previously worked in asset management, studying this diploma felt like a natural move to learn more about the skills and knowledge required to deliver a successful construction project. The tutors were great during my time at College and helped me to develop my technical understanding of construction, and I learnt a lot from their experiences. As an Assistant Employer’s Agent at Longhurst Group, my day-to-day role consists of contract administration, cost and quality control and facilitation of the project management process. Studying at Moulton has helped me to progress through the ranks at Longhurst, and take on increasing responsibility with my newfound knowledge.

About us

Our Equine degrees are designed to develop your knowledge on the principles of equine therapy and rehabilitation, and ensure your skills and expertise match the demand for industry experts. Our degree programmes offer a combination of theory and practical learning. With recent growth in performance analysis and complementary therapies to support health and wellbeing, there’s an ever-present demand from the sector to ensure the optimal care of our horses. Your learning will combine the essential theory with the practical. Expect to network with our industry partners who offer work placements and collaborative research projects. Recent examples of research include herbal and feed supplement trials, biomechanics studies investigating the welfare implications of horse bits and carriage weight, and the effects of restricting turnout on horse behaviour.

We encourage students to get involved in our exciting field trips to equine organisations and conferences related to the programme.

Your learning will be supported through experiencing our Equine Therapy Centre with state-of-the-art facilities including hydrotherapy pool and treadmill. You’ll practise your handling skills and equine hydrotherapy under expert supervision, and develop a range of therapeutic techniques. The equine yard and Therapy Centre can be used for research – either your own, or in collaboration with industry organisations. Assessment on this course takes place in the form of written assignments, presentations, seminar presentations, portfolios and exams. For BSc (Hons) and the top-up degree, you’ll be expected to complete a dissertation. FdSc students will be required to complete an ‘industry project’ - a much smaller version of a dissertation.


Facilities

The Equine Therapy Centre at Moulton College is a state-of-the-art facility that operates as a commercial enterprise. The Centre provides students with the opportunity to experience and learn first-hand about all aspects of equine hydrotherapy. The Centre boasts an aquatreadmill, straight line pool and salt water spa, being one of the very few centres in the UK to have all three under one roof. The hydrotherapy equipment is utilised to assist in the teaching and understanding of gait and performance analyses, providing direct links between modules. Once students have a good understanding of the various hydrotherapy modalities, it is possible for them to see where hydrotherapy theory can be transferred into other modules of the degree. Students also have the opportunity to complete commercial experience in the Equine Therapy Centre. Here they can further develop their knowledge of maintaining hydrotherapy equipment and water quality, and learn more about handling a variety of horses and best business practice.

It is also possible for students to utilise the facility for research and third year dissertation projects, with Dr Jessica York (Senior Hydrotherapist) available to consult on research planning and proposals.

Lecturer Profile

Meet Sophie, one of our lecturers in Equine Studies. From the moment I joined the Level 3 Extended Diploma in Equine Management course at Moulton, I began to mould my career. Now a lecturer in the subject, it’s my ambition to inspire and help students to learn more about the equestrian industry, in the same way my lecturers inspired me. Studying at Moulton was a multidimensional experience, and I not only grew in my understanding of horses, but personally too. It’s a privilege to watch my students do the same. After graduating, I furthered my studies and gained experience in equestrian and animal enterprises. I’ve worked on competition yards, within racing administration and equine insurance. After gaining an interest in equine performance and rehabilitation, I completed a diploma in equine sports massage, and I’m actually looking to progress this further at masters level.

Working at Moulton is a fulfilling experience, and it’s great to watch my students develop their equine skills and employability prospects too. The smaller class sizes make for very involved learning which helps to develop our student-staff relationships and provide tailored support for each individual. I wouldn’t want to work anywhere else.

Meet  Lauren, Veterinary Assistant.

ALUMNI

Studied BSc (Hons) Equine Sports Therapy and Rehabilitation, 2019 graduate. “I loved my university experience at Moulton. Being able to make use of the fantastic facilities such as the Hydrotherapy Centre really helped my learning as I worked with horses on a case-by-case basis. I learnt about the different anatomies and physiologies of a range of species - not just equines, which helped to improve my appreciation of science and biology. This understanding has massively helped me in my current role as a Veterinary Assistant at a small animal clinic. A normal day involves dealing with clients (human and furry!), aiding in theatre, helping hold animals in consultations and general animal husbandry. I’ve aided some clients with rehabilitation cases after certain operations, following approval from the vet, and clients have really appreciated the advice and guidance. I’m thankful to my tutor and support from lecturers during my time at Moulton who have provided me with the skills and confidence which I’ve brought into my current role.“

Student Profile

Meet Stephanie, BSc (Hons) Equine Performance and Therapies. I decided to study my degree at Moulton as I wanted to make use of the fantastic facilities, and felt drawn to the College due to its smaller class sizes. I was concerned that if I joined a university with more students, I’d end up being forgotten about. The course so far has been great. We’ve learnt a range of interesting modules including anatomy and physiology, equitation, practical horsemanship, and even got to network with employers through events such as the BHS Coaching Convention. There are regular tutorials with tutors, and we’re always given extensive feedback which helps us to keep improving. We’re also able to share any concerns we have about our studies right away.

I would 100% recommend Moulton College to study a degree. It’s very different to an ordinary university due to the smaller class sizes, which makes a positive difference to your learning experience. Moulton is well worth looking at for university level studies. The facilities are amazing, the staff are so friendly and helpful, and it’s been an amazing experience so far making new friends and learning more about my passion!

Student Profile Meet Patrycja, BSc (Hons) Equine Performance and Therapies.

After finishing my Level 3 Horse Management qualification I originally wanted to take a gap year but after receiving an offer from Moulton, I decided to start College the same year. All lecturers try and put all the knowledge we get taught within the classroom into practical sessions so we are able to get hands-on experience. This is one thing I enjoy the most, using these skills on the amazing horses we have at College!

We’ve had many discussions with our tutors on how we can apply the knowledge we’ve learnt in industry, and how we can reach our full potential. If a module is specific to our interests the tutors are willing to spend more time with us going over extra material and providing recommended reading to help our learning. It’s been great to have that support from the staff here. Everyone really cares about helping you achieve your full potential. Tutors also try and organise field trips which gives us a real insight into what the equine industry looks like. I would definitely recommend studying at Moulton! Everyone is really friendly and welcoming which makes everything better. I’ve met several people that I know I’ll be keeping in touch for many years to come! And, if there’s a possibility for anyone to live in it’s another bonus to get the full university experience! I’m looking forward to enjoying my final year at Moulton with amazing people and lectures!

ALUMNI

Alumni Profile Meet Luke, co-founder of ‘The Boxing Method’.

Studied BSc (Hons) Sports Therapy, 2020 graduate. During my degree we got to make extensive use of the sports facilities on campus, which really helped to teach me the skills I need to perform in my job at a professional standard.

The facilities at Moulton are excellent. It was a privilege to make use of these throughout the degree, and meant that we were well trained in both the theory and practical elements too. The tutors were also brilliant at keeping us focussed and helping us to achieve our potential. It was great to have their support and guidance whenever we needed it. I’m now a co-partner at ‘The Boxing Method’ with Harry which is the dream. We even hire out the strength and conditioning suite at College so we’re never far from our roots!”

Alumni Profile

ALUMNI

Meet Harry, co-founder of ‘The Boxing Method’. Studied BSc (Hons) Sports Therapy, 2020 graduate. I chose to study Sports Therapy because I’ve always had an interest in injury rehabilitation. I played rugby at a high level when I was younger, however I had to stop playing due to reoccurring concussions. During my time in rehabilitation, I found it fascinating to learn about the anatomy and physiology of the body and exercise selection for certain injuries, and so decided to study this degree.

During my time at Moulton everyone was so helpful, and you can tell how passionate the tutors are to ensure you succeed. Throughout the degree we were given constructive feedback and it really helped me to improve. The resources were great, with access to important research papers, and the library had plenty of books related to my degree. Since graduating from the College I’ve co-found a sports therapy and strength and conditioning business. We coach professional combat sports athletes from around the UK and also offer online services to people across the globe. Without doubt, Moulton helped me to get where I am today. I’m so glad I chose to study at the College.

Student Profile Meet Jack, BSc (Hons) in Sports Therapy.

I specifically chose to study a degree in Sports Therapy because I have always enjoyed helping others, and this course enables me to help others as part of my career. The degree has provided me with detailed knowledge of human anatomy, how to create exercise programmes for clients and so much more! The practical lessons have been the most enjoyable. Studying a degree at Moulton has helped me to mature as a person. The coursework is more difficult than at FE level, and more is expected from university students, but it is all completely manageable.

Tutors are always willing to help and advise when required, and whilst studying at degree level may feel at times challenging, it is completely worth it. I would recommend studying a sports degree at Moulton College. I’ve been able to make full use of the College’s fantastic sports facilities, utilise the College’s great journal archives and I’ve developed brilliant working relationships with my tutors and peers. After graduation, I intend to continue my employment at a local sporting club. Having this degree under my belt means I can improve the services I offer for treatment and strengthen my chances of establishing my own career as a private therapist.
