Reaseheath College and University Centre

Reaseheath College and University Centre Reaseheath are specialist, land-based educational establishments in Nantwich, in the heart of rural Cheshire. We offer diplomas, degrees, apprenticeships and professional CPD courses in a variety of vocational subject areas.

Our industry focused, career ready courses prepare students for success. Many of our students study equine courses with us because of our highly experienced teaching staff, our outstanding facilities and our close links with the equine industry. Our equine courses are endorsed by industry professionals through our industry mentor scheme.

We have recently invested £80 million into our on-site accommodation and industry-standard facilities across our beautiful rural campus, including £3.5 million into our Equestrian Centre. It has everything you would expect from a professional yard, including a modern indoor arena, two outdoor arenas, a mechanical horse, a covered Claydon horse walker, a Kylix Lambda Pro Solarium, an equissage massage machine, gait analysis systems and much more.

Our equine students become career ready by getting the chance to study for extra qualifications, such as British Horse Society (BHS) exams, and by undertaking a relevant work placement for invaluable industry experience. It is a combination of this extra experience, the outstanding teaching and practical skills students gain at Reaseheath, which sets our students apart when applying for jobs in the equine industry.

We also offer the opportunity for students to bring their horse with them while they study with us. We offer a range of livery packages, from full working livery to DIY livery, and we offer access to a range of facilities, on-site competitions and training opportunities with resident coaches and visiting professionals.
