This course is suitable for anyone wishing to work with animals and will give students the knowledge and expertise to enter a wide range of professions in this area. Moulton College is set across a 485 hectare estate in rural Northamptonshire, with its degree courses validated by the University of Northampton. Our on-site facilities include a working farm; animal welfare centre; animal therapy centre; equine yard; and veterinary practice, where students can gain hands-on commercial experience alongside their studies. We also have links with a wide range of animal organisations, such as Woburn Safari Park; Dodson and Horrell Feed Specialists; RSPCA; Woodgreen Animal Shelter; and Twycross Zoo. Students at Moulton College have full use of the resources at the University of Northampton and can enjoy access to the Student Union bars and restaurants, to university sports teams and leisure societies.
Year 1 of the course provides the underpinning knowledge for working with animals in any industry. Modules include Anatomy and Physiology; Animal Behaviour and Welfare; Animal Health and Disease; and Field Ecology. Students will also gain hands-on experience working with a range of species in the Small Animal and Large Animal Husbandry modules alongside studying the more scientific aspects of keeping animals. Year 2 and 3 then allows students to choose optional modules depending on specific areas they would like to specialise in, which include Animal Health, Zoo and Conservation, and Animal Behaviour and Welfare. Year 3 also allows students to undertake a large research project on their own area of interest.
