"Gain a sound understanding of issues surrounding animal health, disease, causes of ill health and modern advances in treatment, and the management of a wide variety of species. Making use of our excellent practical facilities, building on links with the Queen’s Anniversary Prize winning Rural Business School, Dartmoor Zoological Park and more than 40 veterinary practices across Cornwall and Devon, we can ensure that you have excellent access to hands-on experience and the benefit of up-to-date veterinary knowledge. Aspects of animal health and management are studied through a range of inter-related modules, giving you a solid grounding in this specialist area. Study tours in Year 1 and Year 2 will allow you to further your knowledge and experiences both nationally and internationally. You will have amazing opportunities to develop your knowledge of health, welfare and husbandry, and to work with a wide range of species within our Animal Management Centres at our Bicton College, Duchy Stoke and Duchy Rosewarne campuses. You will have access to our Equine Yard and the Duchy College Home Farm and its new hi-tech dairy unit. We have links with Dartmoor Zoological Park and there are sound opportunities for you to broaden your experiences to a wider range of exotic species, including big cats, wolves, monkeys, capybara, tapirs and wallabies; we also work closely with The Donkey Sanctuary and The Dog and Wolf Development Centre in Cornwall. Assessment will be via a range of written assignments and practical assessments, reports, in-class tests, formal examinations, presentations and group discussions. You will compile a portfolio of skills developed during practical sessions. Possible Progression (subject to availability)
