Animal Studies Virtual Tour

Our industry leading Animal Management Centre is a sensational extension to our high-quality provision for Animal Studies students. The facilities include a reception area with a large display tank for large reptiles, specialist rooms for fish, invertebrates, nocturnals, rabbits, guinea pigs, rodents, 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 welfare, environmental studies, behavioural science, animal health and parasitology, animal cognition, 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.
