Moreton Morrell College, located in Warwickshire, offers the opportunity for learners to engage daily with a plethora of tutor expertise. Donna Allen, Subject Lead for the Equine degree programme, shares some information regarding her background and life at Moreton Morrell College.

What is your background?

I have over 18 years of experience within the Equine industry. I started my career working as a Research Assistant in Equine Nutrition before realising that teaching was where my passion lies. Over the years, I have increased my hours as a teacher and I am now proud to be a full-time lecturer and subject lead at Moreton Morrell College.

Alongside teaching, I have been lucky enough to have had the opportunity to volunteer as a member on equestrian panels with organisations including CDAT. Plus, I have been able to continue my involvement in research and, most recently, I have been involved with the AHT study investigating the effects of equine water treadmills on locomotion.

Why do you love being part of the team at Moreton Morrell College?

Firstly - the campus itself! It is beautiful, and for me, the location is what makes it such a special place. Then there is the history and heritage that comes with the college site. I am proud to say that we were one of the first to deliver equine Higher Education courses over 40 years ago, and that legacy is what makes us who we are today. There is a real sense of family here with community at the heart of what we do.

What can students expect from studying equine?

You can expect small class sizes with knowledgeable and friendly staff. We have a longstanding reputation in delivering high quality courses that ensure our graduates are industry-ready. But, more than that you will feel part of the family with a supportive network of teaching staff who are there to help you on this next chapter.


Moreton Morrell College 2022 Degree Open Events

In September 2021, we started our annual cycle of Degree Open Events. Our January 2022 date was originally scheduled to be taking place virtually, but due to student demand, we are really pleased to announce this will be in-person and on-campus, on Saturday 15 January, from 10am to 1pm.

 Please note, this event is for all course levels and not specific to degrees. The event is ticketed but completely free, so you can still come and take a tour of our stunning campus, meet the lecturers and see our specialist learning facilities in person with a guest.

 To get your tickets please visit our website and choose the subject area and time slot of interest. You may bring up to one guest with you on the day, due to the need to maintain safe groups, but they will also require a ticket for the same time slot.

 There is one Degree Open Event remaining for 2022, which will take place on:

 Saturday 18 June 2022 - Degree Open Event

If you’re interested in finding out more about studying with us from September 2022, please visit our website, where you can find more about our accommodation, subject areas and the ability to apply online.
