Course summary

If you’re reading this, there’s a good chance you have a passion for animals. And if you have a passion for animals, you share something with the team at Cornwall College Newquay. For us, we would have to agree with a certain Sir Attenborough, when he described the animal kingdom as “the greatest source of so much in life that makes life worth living”. Sadly, with one-in-four species currently facing extinction, it’s a critical time for the wildlife we all hold so dear. There really has never been a more important time for us to better understand and protect our planet’s animals. And to understand that without them, there is no us. Our Foundation Degree in Animal Behaviour and Welfare will appeal to an animal lover like you. And although it might appear similar to other courses you’ve seen, there are some key differences about studying with us that set it a world apart from others. Naturally, it focuses on the areas of animal behaviour, training, nutrition, welfare and biology. This makes it perfect for anyone interested in working in a zoo, on a farm or with companion animals. But there’s a few other things you should know that make the courses at Cornwall College Newquay unlike any other university offering in the UK. Firstly, there’s our inspirational location. If you are lucky enough to live here, of if you’ve ever visited Cornwall, you know exactly what we mean. With a diverse range of wildlife and habitats, there’s no better place to study. Ours is a county intricately linked to the natural environment. Next is our continuing 20-year-strong partnership with the Wild Planet Trust’s Newquay Zoo. Located only a stones throw from our campus, the zoo’s diverse animal collection and expert staff creates a unique form of degree study for our students. One that places employability and real-world relevance squarely at the heart of what our course is all about. It’s this unrivalled access that gives Cornwall College Newquay an edge. We put considerable emphasis on building practical skills and experience, underpinned by a strong academic and scientific core. It’s our mission to not only develop your skills in animal care, animal welfare, animal behaviour and training, but to support you through industry experience, giving you on-the-ground experience in the sector. The small size and family feel of our campus is another of our stand-out features. Unlike larger universities, you’ll find that student-teacher collaboration is commonplace at Cornwall College Newquay. We often encourage students who write exceptional project reports to work with our research-active staff who will help them see their work published under their own name. Our small community learning environment also lends itself to a more bespoke experience for our students, allowing our experienced and passionate lecturers to tailor lessons to a particular field of interest.
