Fancy a career working with animals in a zoo or welfare centre? If you would like to learn about domestic, exotic or companion animals, their husbandry, biology or behaviour, this programme is perfect for you. The programme offers specialised modules to develop skills in animal care and animal health, as well as enhancing knowledge of fundamental animal biology, ranging from how animal cells function to animal nutrition. The College has strong links with the animal industry in Cornwall, giving you the chance to gain real work experience and further insight into the sector.

This is invaluable for gaining contacts and showing future employers you have practical work experience as well as academic knowledge.
