Who studies animals? If you enjoy being with animals, whether they are pets, livestock or more exotic species, care about their health and welfare and want to know why they behave as they do, we have a course for you. There are currently around 300 people studying animal courses at Harper Adams, and that figure is rising steadily. Do I need experience of working with animals? Yes. As these courses are vocational you will need some practical experience preferably with both large animals (farm livestock or horses) and companion (pet) animals. It is also an advantage if you have worked with animals as a group (on a farm or in stables/kennels, for instance) as well as individual animals such as your own pets, or in a veterinary surgery. Obviously we don’t expect you to have worked with every species, but the more experience you have acquired by the start of the course, the more meaningful the lectures will be and the more you will get out of your studies.
