HNC Animal Management

HOW AND WHEN TO ENROL

To ensure the safety of our staff and students and to manage the number of people on campus in a Covid-safe manner during this busy period, it is our intention to enrol as many students as possible online. You can find out if you’re eligible for online enrolment on our How to Enrol page.

If you are eligible to complete your enrolment online, you will receive a unique username and password via letter and email. This will allow you to sign in to access your online enrolment dashboard.

If you do not receive this information by Monday 10th August, please contact the college on 01964 553000.

Online enrolment for this programme opens on 13th August 2020.

Please note: Access to your personal online enrolment dashboard will only be available from the date stated above.

If you need support with online enrolment, please email enquiries@bishopburton.ac.uk or give us a call on 01964 553000 during the support times shown on our How to Enrol page.

If you are not eligible for online enrolment or need extra support, please call 01964 553000 to book an appointment to enrol on campus.

INDUCTION

The enrolment process will be complete once you have attended Bishop Burton for your induction session, which will take place on Tuesday 15th September, 9.15am - 4pm.

Please bring your own device if you have one.

At induction, students will receive their ID badge, a copy of their Learner Agreement and details about how to access their college email account, including their username and password (which they can change if they wish at a later date).

During your HNC you will visit a range of relevant animal collections and centres as well as receive talks from a range of subject specialists to enhance the programme content.

Trips may include, Donna Nook seal colony, Chester Zoo, Yorkshire Wildlife Park, The Deep, Lotherton Hall Bird Garden, Hearing Dogs, North Cave Wetlands, Bransby Horses and Bempton Cliffs.

Some visits may be free, but others will incur a charge varying with the nature of the visit and the distance travelled. Such charges will be kept to a reasonable rate.


Before you begin your course, you’ll need to make sure you’re prepared with the right equipment. Many of our courses need specialist health and safety clothing, but we’ve made it simple - some of your essentials and college branded clothing can be bought from our online shop.

For your course, you will need:

  • A tablet, laptop or stationery to take notes in lectures and seminars
  • USB stick and / or portable hard drive
  • College-branded white laboratory coat
  • College-branded blue kennel coat
  • Appropriate waterproof outdoor clothing and footwear for outdoor practicals
  • Strong steel toe capped boots for practical sessions
  • The college has a strict policy of not allowing work boots inside college buildings – you will need to have alternative footwear (shoes or trainers) to attend lectures and tutorials.
  • Roughly £300 to cover the costs of field trips and visits over the duration of your programme
  • Training equipment will be required (i.e. clicker and target stick) for the training related modules (this module can be selected as an option on the programme).
