Aaron Cooper - FdSc in Animal Management and Behaviour
“UCBB encapsulated what I would want for a university!”
Animal Sciences student Aaron’s favourite part of being at UCBB is the hands-on experience with the collection of over 100 species of animal. He loves that the academic team are very helpful and hands on are very supportive but challenge students to reach their potential. Aaron feels trusted to work with the animals and handle them independently thanks to the industry insight of the team and visiting experts.
