About this course
The HND Applied Animal Science programme provides a valued vocational award. This programme covers a broad range of issues related to companion animals, wildlife, conservation and animal husbandry. Students undertake practical work both in the laboratory and in the field to develop their skills and understanding. The College Animal Team use their links with Kent animal parks, Howletts and Port Lympne to enable students to improve the life of the parks' animals and gain experience of working with real animal issues. Students attend a field trip every year in the United Kingdom and every second year go further afield. In 2011, 2013 and 2014 HND Applied Animal Science students attended an optional academic safari field trip in South Africa.
Applicants must have at least one of the following:
