This course is designed to offer progression to Level 2 programmes and apprenticeships as well as employment within the land-based sector.
Animal studies courses are for anyone who wants a career working with animals. You do not need any experience working in an animal care role or any previous animal care qualifications. It will allow you to learn, develop and practice the skills required for further study on a range of level 2 programmes offered at the Suffolk Rural campus.
Attendance to all aspects of the study programme is required, typically 3 days per week on campus and an additional day in work placement. To achieve this qualification you will be assessed using a range of practical demonstrations and written assignments which will be used to compile a portfolio of evidence, plus one multiple choice exam.
