KEY UNITS The HND in Animal Management offers our students to opportunity to undertake animal-based studies at University level. The majority of our students will join the HNC Level 4 course and naturally progress onto the HND year, making it a 2 year course. The range of subjects taught gives the students a wide variety of topics to learn, & often we will see our students finding their "specialist area of interest" throughout the HND, directing them towards a life-long career in the animal sector. Students will naturally progress academically and have access to a wide range of support and resources at university level. Lessons take place both online and on-site at the Hillsborough campus - some of our units can facilitate remote learning, however, an element of flexibility is required to attend campus for practical lessons and assessments.
