Animal Care

Studying Animal Care can lead to a wide variety of roles:

  • animal welfare societies 
  • zoos
  • wildlife parks and sanctuaries
  • city farms
  • boarding kennels and catteries
  • veterinary practices
  • grooming salons
  • pet superstores.

Graduates have also gone on to become dog handlers for the police, prison service and armed forces while some entrepreneurs have opened their own business.

The ability to care for animals is a skill required in a wide range of organisations and nationally recognised qualifications are now required by the majority of employers.
