Students studying our animal, equine science and welfare management courses benefit from all the facilities at our Wrexham campus as well as having access to our stunning rural campus a short distance away in Northop.
Our Northop campus is set in the stunning, inspiring surroundings of the North Wales countryside and offers facilities related to our courses in animal studies and equine science and welfare management.
Student accommodation is available in both Wrexham and Northop so students can choose to base themselves at either campus to benefit from both urban and rural campus life.
If you're fascinated by animals of all shapes and sizes, our course focused on studying them could be your perfect option.
You'll discover an understanding of the lives of animals and how they interact with people as you explore a range of issues from animal welfare and behaviour to conservation policy.
With access to Coleg Cambria's animal care facility, rare-breeds farm and a nearby country park, the course will give you the chance to get hands-on experience as you work with teachers who are specialists in their field.
Combined with career-enhancing work-experience opportunities in practical scenarios like zoos, wildlife centres and animal training facilities, your classroom experience will cover diverse subjects like animal behaviour, diet, learning, training and more.
The BSc (Hons) Animal Science programme is a broad based course designed to equip you with the knowledge and skills required to enter a variety of professions within the animal sector.
You will develop your knowledge in the core themes of animal behaviour, welfare and conservation. At level 6 students will design and implement their own research project, enabling them to specialise in an area of their choice. Personal and professional development is embedded within the course to maximise students employability within the industry and to enable you to focus upon your chosen career path.
This course is based at our rural Northop campus, set in the stunning North Wales countryside, with access to a rare breeds farm, animal unit, equestrian facility and woodland. Off site visits to animal charities, wildlife centres and other industry related venues form part of the course.
Equine Science and Welfare Management
This course is among a very select number in the UK which focus on the relationship between horse and human, increasingly seen as central to the equestrian industry's development.
You will study at the Northop campus, which is set in the stunning North Wales countryside, and make full use of British Horse Society (BHS) approved equine facilities. The degree integrates theory and practice, and prepares you for a wide range of future career paths related to equine science and welfare management.
You'll explore subjects such as equine behaviour and cognition, equine learning theory, equine behaviour modification, and the horse/human relationship.
Our course is run at a British Horse society (BHS) approved centre. In addition there is free training for British Horse Society examinations, provided alongside the degree, together with £100 towards an equine vocational examination of your choice.
