You will have the opportunity to work with a range of small animals, including birds, reptiles and rabbits.

You’ll study in our Animal Care Centre, which is the perfect place to learn about how to care for these animals in a realistic habitat, where they feel comfortable. This will allow you to get real hands-on experience in this ever-changing field.
