As well as working in the college’s animal management unit you will also get the opportunity to go on work placements up to three times a year. This will be arranged by the college and could include experiences such as volunteering at the Humber Bridge Country Park. This is a great opportunity to put what you have learnt into practice.

During the course you will get the opportunity to go on a range of visits which are held throughout the year. You will get plenty of notice of these visits and trips so that you can save for them, although we try and keep them as cheap as possible.

For selected programmes students will have the opportunity to participate in an Industry Placement. This will comprise of 315 hours of placement in an area linked to the selected programme of study. If this is the case, your course manager will contact you in due course to discuss further.
