    Description

    This programme's variety of courses and practical work produce multi-skilled graduates who are able to gain employment within many areas of the animal industry.

    Students' learning is further enhanced by visits and talks from some of the industry's leading organisations. Hadlow College has close links with the Veterinary Laboratories Agency, Kent and Sussex Wildlife Trusts, the Association of British Wild Animal Keepers and the Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust.

    Throughout the programme there will be opportunities to see a variety of different management practices through a range of field trips. Past trips have included a study tour at Jersey Zoo, whale watching in Tenerife, and conservation trips to South Africa, Zambia and Costa Rica.

    The aims of the programme are:

    • To provide a comprehensive grounding in animal management, welfare and conservation, addressing the underpinning knowledge of the applied animal sciences.
    • To develop a comprehensive understanding and application of a broad number of key disciplines related to animal management, such as nutrition and behaviour.

    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
