Our Level 3 Animal Management Diploma offers you the choice of university study or employment on successful completion of your course. There are one and two year options available with this pathway and we will work with you to decide which is best for you.
This is a 2 year course but you will need to pass the first year in order to progress onto the second.
Caring for animals can be an extremely fulfilling and rewarding career. From working in kennels and catteries to pet shops, rescue centres or sanctuaries, there is a wide range of careers available on successful completion of your course. With access to an array of animal collections on campus you will gain the practical training you need to pursue a career in this exciting industry.
Our Newquay campus has classrooms at Newquay Zoo and Blue Reef Aquarium, designed to immerse you in the animal world and ensure you learn all you can from the expert members of staff who work there. Newquay students will have access to the animal centres at Duchy College.
