Choosing a college where you will study for several years is an important decision. We offer an inspiring environment where you can study a specialist degree.

We welcome all students from the UK and abroad and offer degree level courses in subjects that relate to modern, land-based industries, conservation and the rural economy – subjects that will be of real value in developing your career.

Foundation degrees can be studied full time over two years or part time over up to four years. They are classed as a higher education qualification which is equivalent to the first two years of a full time undergraduate degree.

We also offer a top-up course for students to progress from the foundation degree to a full BSc Honours degree in Animal Behaviour and Welfare.

Please call our friendly team on 01305 215177 for advice.

If you have already applied please have your UCAS number ready when you call.
