Course summary

The BSc (Hons) Animal Management (Top Up) Degree has been designed to provide a mechanism whereby graduates of the Kingston University Foundation Degree in Animal Management can top-up their qualification to a Bachelor of Science Honours Degree.

This course will support students to develop the skills and knowledge required to work in the hugely varied land-based industry. Giving a broad overview of working with animals, the course will allow students to develop their knowledge base in animal nursing, conservation and research, whilst at the same time putting theory into practice at Nescot’s substantial animal care facilities. This will give students the opportunity to develop high standards of education within a vocational setting that is not commonly available at Higher Education Institutions.

Teaching and learning will take place at Nescot College, where the land-based department spans two-thirds of the campus. The facilities are an oasis of calm nestled within the vibrant suburban surroundings of Ewell, which has excellent transport links. Ewell East train station is a short walk from the campus and travel time to London Victoria is around half an hour.

The animal care unit is home to a wide range of species, including livestock animals such as sheep and poultry; domestic pet species such as rabbits and rodents; and captive exotic species including reptiles and amphibians. As at 2019, the collection contains over 400 individuals including mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish and invertebrates, which allow students to easily apply theory to practice on a regular basis. This will allow students to develop the practical skills necessary to successfully enter the animal and land-based industry across the range of taxa commonly kept in captive animal collections or as companion animals.
