Animal Management (Animal Behaviors and Welfare) HNC/HND

Course overview

This course is based at Stam­ford cam­pus, but accred­it­ed by Uni­ver­si­ty Cen­tre Peterborough.

The Ani­mal Man­age­ment sec­tor is evolv­ing and expand­ing con­stant­ly and there­fore requires an adapt­able and knowl­edge­able work­force to meet these changes. This course will pro­vide you with a sol­id in-depth intro­duc­tion to ani­mal wel­fare and man­age­ment, to meet employ­er demands in such a com­pet­i­tive industry.

You will have the oppor­tu­ni­ty to be involved in trips to zoos, wildlife parks, ani­mal shel­ters, nat­ur­al his­to­ry muse­ums and an oppor­tu­ni­ty to vis­it South Africa (sub­ject to addi­tion­al costs).

Through­out the course you will meet indus­try spe­cial­ists includ­ing Rep­tile Spe­cial­ists, Avi­cul­tur­ists, Zoo Keep­ers, Board­ing Estab­lish­ment Own­ers, Ecol­o­gists and Vets.

At the Stam­ford cam­pus, you will have access to a range of species housed in the on-site Ani­mal Stud­ies Unit and devel­op nec­es­sary skills in ani­mal man­age­ment and hus­bandry. The Ani­mal Stud­ies Unit includes a range of small mam­mals, rep­tiles, amphib­ians, fish and inver­te­brates, as well as a bespoke noc­tur­nal room and a large out­side area hous­ing rab­bits, guinea pigs, fer­rets, birds, mar­mosets and meerkats.

The cours­es at Uni­ver­si­ty Cen­tre Peter­bor­ough are stud­ied in small­er class sizes com­pared with oth­er uni­ver­si­ties, a typ­i­cal class size is under 30 students.

The real hands-on expe­ri­ences I have gained work­ing with a range of species at Col­lege has allowed me to con­tin­ue my stud­ies and become a Vet­eri­nary Nurse.
