Why study Animal Management?

If you love animals, taking care of animals and learning about their natural environment and behaviour then Animal Management is the course for you. It is an exciting and varied course where you are able to care for and look after a wide range of animals, as well as the opportunity to visit local farms to work with livestock.

To study at Cowley Sixth Form College, you must have achieved a minimum of five GCSEs or equivalent, graded 9 – 4, across four separate subjects, including GCSE Mathematics and English Language.

In addition, a positive college interview is required.

There is a combination of coursework and external examinations.

Many students choose a variety of paths depending on their ambitions and aspirations.

The majority of students usually move to work with animals in animal welfare centres, catteries and kennels, veterinary nursing, animal grooming and retail.

I’ve always loved taking care
of animals and this course
has allowed me to enhance
my knowledge of animal
management. The course is
balanced between course
work and practical work.
