Course options

Course summary

This course enables students to develop the skills and knowledge required to work in the hugely varied landbased industry. Giving a broad overview of working with animals, the course will allow students to study animal anatomy, physiology, health, welfare, behaviour and husbandry, whilst at the same time putting the theory into practice at Nescot's substantial animal care facilities. Students will develop high standards of education within a vocational setting that is not usually available at Higher Education institutions. Students will have the opportunity to take part in a research expedition and undertake genuine field work. Nescot's animal care unit is home to a range of species including livestock such as sheep and poultry, domestic pet species such as rabbits and rodents and captive exotic species such as reptiles and amphibians. Priest Hill, Surrey Wildlife Trust's 35-hectare restored chalk grassland is nearby. Nescot has links with Chessington Zoo and Aquarium, 4 miles away
