Our brand new £1.6m Animal Management Centre, opened in 2018, is a sensational extension to our high-quality provision for Animal Studies students. The new facilities include a reception area with a large display tank for large reptiles, specialist rooms for fish, invertebrates, nocturnals, rabbits, guinea pigs, reptiles, amphibians, small mammals, plus quarantine and isolation rooms. There are a dedicated dog exercise area and grooming room, outdoor and indoor aviaries, outdoor runs for ducks, hens, geese and rabbits, and a wildlife area.
Our Animal Studies tutors have a vast range of skills and years of experience of working with animals, including dog grooming in the UK and caring for reptiles as part of private zoo collections. Their specialist study areas include animal health and nutrition, animal health and parasitology, animal behaviour, conservation and ecology, giving you a depth of knowledge to tap into.
Visits to zoos and local farms and frequent workshops by local experts are some of the enrichment activities you can expect to be part of the Animal Studies course at Craven College.
