Animal Management :: Bishop Burton College

Animal Management

There is nowhere better than Bishop Burton College to fully prepare you for a career working with animals, whether that is in zoos, animal sanctuaries, with charities, in kennels and catteries, pet shops or anywhere else.

Our tutors are experts in their field and the college's Animal Management Unit is one of the finest anywhere in the country, including an outdoor unit, reptile house, avaries and small animal rooms.

Students work with more than 100 different species, including meerkats, skunks, otters, primates, wallabies and many more. They also benefit from working with livestock on the college farm.

Preparation for Work

The emphasis at Bishop Burton is on preparing our students for successful careers and they benefit from our outstaning links with businesses and organisations in the animal care and management industry.

All our students take part in work experience placements with external groups such as the RSPCA, Yorkshire Wildlife Park, Hearing Dogs and many more, to complement their studies and the practical work they carry out at the College.

We have an excellent track record of students securing employment in this way, with many offered positions by these organisations during and at the end of their studies.
