Learning In Ireland


Ireland has a strong education network and is an ideal location to study all facets of equine care, management, and business.

There are over twenty educational institutes offering students the opportunity to study Equine Care and Management, Equine Business, Jockey Licences, Stud Management, Veterinary Science, and everything else in between.

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 in many other areas of the industry.

Some examples of equine educational opportunities on offer in Ireland include the world-renowned Racing Academy & Centre of Education (RACE), the Irish National Stud Thoroughbred Breeding Course, and the Godolphin Flying Start.

Every year Ireland welcomes hundreds of 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.

The future depends on what you do today.
