What are you doing now?
I own and run an exotic pet store and pet supplies in Lancaster.
What are the best things about your course?
Engaging in the hands on parts of the course and I liked being able to learn the science/anatomy aspect of working with animals.
Why did you choose Lancaster & Morecambe College?
It is a local college that offered everything I wanted from my chosen course.
Has studying with us helped with your job? How?
Yes, it gave me the knowledge I needed on the animal care and husbandry side. I also completed a Level 3 Business and Enterprise course at LMC. This was very helpful and gave me the knowledge and confidence to set up and run my own business with exotic animals.
What would you say to someone else who was thinking about doing the course?
It’s a really good educational course that helps with all aspects of animal care, it’s really worth doing.
