Course summary

This 2 year Diploma of Higher Education course takes a holistic approach to animal management and prepares students for the increasingly diverse enterprises of the UK animal industry. A wide range of species are available to enable students to gain sound practical animal husbandry skills, which are then complemented by an academic programme that covers topics such as nutrition, breeding, health and behaviour. These are combined with a deeper understanding of business and trade as it relates to the animal sector. Option routes outlined below provide specialist teaching of pet behaviour and welfare, zoo and wildlife conservation, and farm livestock technology. If you are passionate about companion animals and looking for a course to learn about their behaviour and welfare then this is the option for you. Complementing the holistic approach of the Animal Management programme or the core scientific principles of the Animal Science programme, this course particularly prepares students for employment in the range of companion animal roles including pet behaviour councillors, pet nutritionists and pet animal welfare charities.
