The BSc (Hons) Animal Management degree is geared towards those wishing to develop a broad range of knowledge and expertise relating to the range of disciplines which fall within the animal field. Therefore, this programme is an ideal choice for somebody wishing to pursue a career which requires multidisciplinary skills and knowledge of animal science.

The BSc (Hons) Animal Management programme will:
• Produce Honours Degree (BSc) graduates at honours level who are capable of employment in animal management and associated occupations or progressing to research and development roles
• Develop students’ knowledge and understanding of animal management, current issues and best practice in the field, and the associated underpinning biological, technical and welfare concepts and key paradigms
• Provide an intellectual challenge to students at this level and to develop students’ intellectual, practical and transferable key skills
• In particular to stimulate an enquiring, analytical and creative approach to study, whilst encouraging independent judgement and critical self-awareness at this level
• Work closely with industry to meet the regional (and wider) industry’s needs for BSc graduates with the required knowledge, understanding, practical capability and skills as well as transferable/key skills
The programme is delivered by a team of dedicated and highly experience teaching staff who have a wide range of expertise within the animal science field. The programme is primarily delivered at Hadlow College, in a multi-million pound, state-of-the-art Animal Management Centre, as well as the surrounding estate of the college.

The programme also provides numerous opportunities for external visits to zoological collections, animal-related businesses, and local wildlife reserves. Furthermore, students will have the opportunity to participate in study tours to a range of locations during their three years of study. The Durrell Institute at Jersey Zoo is the host for a 5 day trip in June each year and 2 weeks of field work have been carried out in South Africa for the past few years. In addition, field trips to a range of locations in Kent and nearby are undertaken to facilitate delivery of the more practical conservation-based courses.
