Courses taken at college: Animal Welfare and behaviour HNC
School: Kirkbie Kendal School
What are the best things about your course?
The range of animals we have contact with and the staff that work in the Animal Studies department.
Why did you choose your course?
After 6th form I no longer wanted to do the uni course I had applied for but could no longer change it. So I wanted to do a Level 4 course in animal care which they didn’t do at Kendal College.
Why did you choose Lancaster & Morecambe College?
Kendal College doesn’t do the course at Level 4 so I decided to do it here.
What would you say to someone else who was thinking about doing the course?
Make sure you are aware of the amount of commitment the workload requires.
What has been your biggest accomplishment whilst studying at LMC?
My biggest accomplishment is becoming more confident and overcoming my fear of spiders, and actually being able to hold a tarantula.
What do you hope to do when you’ve completed this course?
I hope to move on and get a job in a larger zoo or animal facility.
Any other comments?
As I am from Kendal it is great that there is a free bus to and from College daily.
