TOCES During Covid-19 Lockdown

The Open College of Equine Studies (TOCES) is fully open and operational with our great team all working safely from home. We are accepting enrolments and still processing student assignments. Enrolments can be made in the usual way (directions on each course page). The best method of contacting us during lockdown is by email: info@equinestudies.co.uk


Study Weeks During Lockdown

We have deferred face-to-face attended study weeks until it is safe and permitted to hold them again. In the meantime study weeks are being delivered remotely using BigBlueButton, a great interactive and easy to use online delivery platform. So although our syllabus scheduling has had to change, we are ensuring no delivery is missed.

If the course you are interested in has study weeks, you can enrol now to get a head start with the theoretical content.

International Students

Many of TOCES’ courses can be studied 100% online via tutor-supported e-learning, enabling international students to benefit from the wealth of expertise offered by TOCES without needing to travel. TOCES has students based throughout the world, and many do choose courses that involve study weeks held in England.
