Studying Animal Care or Management at WUC is the ideal way to explore the diverse career opportunities available to you in the animal industry. There is an emphasis on animal science alongside practical learning covering topics such as husbandry, conservation and wildlife, zoo and exotic animals, and kennel and cattery management.
During your studies, you will delve into biology, anatomy, physiology, ecology and behaviour - and apply all the theory you learn to practical experiences.
You will learn how to safely handle and care for a wide range of species and to maintain and promote their health by looking after their basic living and nutrition needs. You will practise basic veterinary nursing skills such as applying bandages or practising techniques for safely restraining different animals, and will also learn essential animal first aid, in addition to developing vital skills in customer care and business management too.
Choosing a course in Animal Studies at WUC could take you into a range of roles such as a veterinary nurse, zoo keeper, animal collection manager, or rescue centre worker. You may also go on to work for a wildlife park, kennel or cattery, animal welfare organisation or charity or set up your own business.
This is just the beginning. You could go onto study a higher education diploma or degree in a related subject such as animal science, management and behaviour, or zoology and veterinary nursing.
