Education is at the core of our business at The National Stud, where we have been training industry leaders for over 30 years.

The National Stud Diploma is a comprehensive introduction to a career in the thoroughbred bloodstock industry. Students work alongside stud staff during the breeding season to hone their practical skills and gain a fuller understanding of all areas of stud work. Regular evening lectures cover everything from veterinary practice and stallion selection to marketing and the business elements of stud management.

Students benefit from our domestic and international connections, along with having regular mentoring sessions to help guide them in the next steps in their career.

In addition to the internationally recognised Diploma, students also graduate with a Level 3 Certificate in Thoroughbred Stud Practice accredited by 1st 4 Sport.

Course fees and visa conditions do apply.

To be considered for a place applicants need to be:
– at least 18 years of age
– have practical experience working with horses in any discipline
– be able to commit to the residential 23 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 practical experience please look at the TBA’s Entry to Stud Employment Course also on the Careers in Racing website

Case studies of successful graduates from all courses are posted regularly on The National Stud’s social media channels.
