ANIMAL SCIENCES PROVE BIG ATTRACTION

 

Students will be flocking from all ends of the country to visit the University of Lincoln’s Riseholme Park for their Animal and Equine Sciences Open Day tomorrow.

 

Dundee, Swansea, Chichester and London are just some of the towns and cities from which students will be travelling to attend the Lincolnshire School of Agriculture’s higher education open day.

 

Starting at 10.00 a.m., the day will include presentations on Animal and Equine Sciences, Equine Sports Science and Conservation Biology, as well as tours of facilities at both the Brayford Pool campus and the expanding Riseholme Park.

 

Riseholme Park is currently undergoing a £2 million expansion which is to include a new animal care unit, animal behaviour clinic, indoor riding school, outdoor arena, equine treadmill and other animal-related resources.

 

“The day is designed to give the students the information required to help them make their final UCAS decisions,” said Emma Godsall, faculty marketing officer.  “As well as programme information students will receive advice on accommodation, finances and completing UCAS applications.”

 

If you would like information regarding any of the above programmes or future open days please call 01522 522252.
