TOCES During Covid-19 

The Open College of Equine Studies (TOCES) is fully open and operational with our great team all working partially from home, partially in TOCES’ office. 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 is by email: info@equinestudies.co.uk


Study Weeks 

We are delighted to be running our study weeks at our new, purpose built equine education centre.  We have robust Covid protocols in place to ensure the safety of our staff, students and other visitors.

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.
