Our students spend time learning the theory of animal management and science in the classroom, before putting their lessons into practice in our large animal collection – home to domestic and exotic species. Our Animal Management Centre houses our reptile and aquatic species, while our Walled Garden Animal Centre is home to rodents, rabbits, guinea pigs, ferrets, meerkats, prairie dogs and our giant Sulcata, Millie, in our tortoise enclosure. You’ll find emus, llamas, rare Bagot goats and poultry in The Orchard. Depending on your course, we’ll teach you about animal health, biology, welfare and husbandry. Our well-equipped laboratories and classrooms provide the ideal learning environment. You’ll be able to evidence your knowledge and practical skills to employers through your work experience. Previous students have worked in veterinary surgeries, rescue centres, kennels and catteries, equine yards, farms, canine enterprises and zoological collections. Alongside that, our commercial animal businesses on campus – canine and equine therapy centres, our livestock farm and dog grooming salon – provide additional opportunities to gain practical and business experience. You’ll take part in trips for first-hand industry experience, including the incredible opportunity to visit Borneo*, and hear from animal management experts. Our lecturers have worked as animal trainers, coaches, behaviourists and veterinary professionals – so you’ll benefit from their considerable experience in the commercial animal industry. Depending on your course and career aspirations, you could also choose to complete a dog first aid qualification to enhance your employability.
