DITI (Dubai International Thoroughbred Internships) announces changes to its education programmes

This year’s intake to the Dubai International Thoroughbred Internships programme (DITI) will be the last of its current format.

This year’s intake to the Dubai International Thoroughbred Internships programme (DITI) will be the last of its current format, and instead Chinese students who are considering a career in thoroughbred racing and breeding will have the opportunity to apply for internships at Godolphin farms worldwide.  These internship opportunities will be made available via the DITI website commencing September 2017.

DITI was established in 2012 and has seen many graduates go on to successful careers both within the thoroughbred industry (including with the Hong Kong Jockey Club and Australian Turf Club) and in the wider business world (with Falcon and Associates and Dubai Tourism for example).

DITI director, Joe Osborne, said “DITI has provided learning opportunities for an impressive group of Chinese university graduates. From the outset we selected graduates with a wide range of degrees. After this year’s intake our education-related initiatives will focus on Animal Science and Veterinary Science students and graduates. For graduates with business career ambitions we are directing candidates to the Dubai-based Dubai Business Internships – a programme which has been a great success and continues to be a fantastic opportunity for the talented and ambitious.”

Further information on the Dubai Business Internships programme is available at: http://www.dubaibusinessinternships.ae/en/about.

Dubai Equine Science Scholarships (DESS) were launched in 2015 and provide financial support to students at top Chinese agricultural universities who are interested in furthering their equine knowledge. 2016 applications will open soon on the DITI website.
