Cert HE Animal Behaviour and Welfare degree

This Cert HE course is designed to cater for students who have 48 - 63 UCAS points or have Level 3 qualifications in a non-scientific subject set. On successful completion of the Cert HE, the student will progress directly into the second year of the FdSc programme. The programme is for students interested in working with animals, for example in a zoo, on a farm or with companion animals. Applicants wishing to increase their knowledge in areas such as animal behaviour, training, nutrition, welfare and biology and those interested in improving their practical skills and experience with a range of animals, will benefit from this programme. This course provides the opportunity for students to develop a range of skills that would allow them to move into the animal care or training sector working with animals throughout our society with optional modules to allow for program tailoring to personal interests.

Our close association with industry partners such as Newquay Zoo allows us to provide industry active instructors on our modules and opportunities for industry relevant experience. We pride ourselves in supporting students through industry experience during their degree, giving them on the ground experience in the sector.

Students will be taught in small groups by experienced and passionate lecturers and will learn contemporary techniques for the husbandry and training of animals to a high welfare standard informed by the latest research. Our small community learning environment allows staff to provide a bespoke experience for students to allow them to develop in the field of their choice.

The programme offers a series of modules to develop skills in many areas of animal care, animal welfare and animal behaviour and training. Alongside our partnerships we visit a number of training facilities and animal collections nationally and internationally to allow students to evaluate best practice for the training and husbandry of animals in our care.
