The National Stud has been providing stud staff training for the Thoroughbred breeding industry for over 30 years. The Diploma programme is the Stud’s flagship course and has an excellent reputation in the global bloodstock industry. It could be the kick start to the Thoroughbred career you always dreamed of.

Graduates of the Diploma in Stud Practice and Management are in demand from the breeding industry in the UK and abroad. This unique training experience runs annually (Jan to Jun) and selects a small number of passionate applicants to benefit from the amazing practical experience and industry networking opportunities.

The Diploma provides experienced horse people with an opportunity to train and learn during a stud season at The National Stud. The Diploma combines experiencing all elements of practical stud work on a highly commercial and busy stud with a detailed lecture and seminar schedule covering veterinary, bloodstock and many other stud management topics.

The Diploma group visit important industry organisations and meet leading industry figures and employers throughout the course. Accredited Level 3 qualifications are included and Diploma students are guided and assessed throughout the course to achieve accredited industry qualifications and the Diploma certificate.

All training, course content and assessment is currently FREE to EU citizens. Up to 100% grants are available to cover accommodation and board and all Diploma attendees are provided with uniform and are paid a generous weekly allowance in recognition of their practical work on the Stud.

Non-EU applicants need to contact the National Stud’s training team on students@nationalstud.co.uk as course fees and visa conditions do apply.

To be considered for a place applicants need to be:
– at least 18 years of age
– experienced working full time with horses in any discipline
– be able to commit to the residential 22 week course in Newmarket

Ideally some prior stud experience is recommended, but a commitment and focus on a Thoroughbred industry career is of far more importance. If you lack sufficient prior experience working full time with horses please look at the TBA’s Entry to Stud Employment Course also on the Careers in Racing website
