Statement of achievement

  • You are able to develop a sound foundation for further studies with this introductory course into the health and development of a large range of animals.

  • Animal breeding can be anything from a serious hobby or part time business (eg. breeding and selling pets), through to a very serious and possibly highly sophisticated profession. This course provides an excellent starting point whatever level you plan to operate at.

  • In the Animal Feed and Nutrition course you will learn the composition of a range of feeds used for animals on the farm, wildlife in zoos or your pet.

  • Animal Health is a foundation course that allows you develop your skills in identifying and responding to a range of common complaints and illnesses in animals.

  • The aim of this course is to introduce the student to the many interesting and diverse bird species, and their physiology and habitats. You will learn a wide variety of bird facts, through a combination of tools such as reading, interacting with tutors, undertaking research and practical tasks, and observing birds!

  • Many students would love to work with a variety of animals, but don’t know where to start. If you like all creatures, of different shapes and sizes, working in a zoo is something that can be quite fun and has the potential to start a career for you working with endangered or captive species.
