Course summary

Gain a sound understanding of issues surrounding animal health, disease, behaviour, welfare and the management of animal collections. Making use of our excellent practical facilities and links with Dartmoor Zoological Park and various veterinary practices across Cornwall and Devon, we can ensure that you have excellent access to hands-on experience and the benefit of up-to-date veterinary knowledge.

Aspects of animal health and management are studied through a range of inter-related modules, giving you a solid grounding in this specialist area. Study tours in Year 1 and Year 2 will allow you to further your knowledge and experiences both nationally and internationally. You will have amazing opportunities to develop your knowledge of health, welfare and husbandry, and to work with a wide range of species within our Animal Management Centres at our Bicton College, Duchy Stoke and Duchy Rosewarne campuses.

You will have access to our Equine Yard and the Duchy College Home Farm and its new hi-tech dairy unit. Links with Dartmoor Zoological Park have developed in the past few years and there are sound opportunities for you to broaden your experiences to a wider range of exotic species, including big cats, wolves, monkeys, capybara, tapirs and wallabies; we also work closely with The Donkey Sanctuary and The Dog and Wolf Development Centre in Cornwall.

Assessment will be via a range of written assignments and practical assessments, reports, in-class tests, formal examinations, presentations and group discussions. You will compile a portfolio of skills developed during practical sessions.
