      WE KNOW THAT CHOOSING YOUR NEXT
      STEPS IS A BIG AND EXCITING DECISION.
      We hope this guide will help you find the college course that’s right
      for you. If you’re looking to study an animal, equine or land-based subject,
      you’ll find it here.
      Brackenhurst is set in stunning countryside just a bus ride away from
      Nottingham city centre. We are part of Nottingham Trent University.
      We offer college courses alongside our degree courses, all taught by
      our skilled, experienced and supportive staff.
      At Brackenhurst, you’ll have access to incredible facilities. These include an
      animal unit, equestrian centre, laboratories, library and gardens and fields that
      are overflowing with plants and wildlife. Studying with us means that you’ll
      be a part of an amazing learning environment. You get all the perks of being
      part of a big university, but you will still enjoy the comforts of a friendly college.
      Most importantly, our courses reward your hard work with valuable qualifications and training.
      They will prepare you for the world of work, or open the door to further study. It’s your future – you decide.
