Trips may include, Donna Nook seal colony, Chester Zoo, Yorkshire Wildlife Park, The Deep, Lotherton Hall Bird Garden, Hearing Dogs, North Cave Wetlands, Bransby Horses and Bempton Cliffs. Some visits may be free, but others will incur a charge varying with the nature of the visit and the distance travelled. Such charges will be kept to a reasonable rate.

There is no work experience attached to this programme.

Before you begin your course, you’ll need to make sure you’re prepared with the right equipment. Many of our courses need specialist health and safety clothing, but we’ve made it simple - some of your essentials and college branded clothing can be bought from our online shop.

For your course, you will need:

  • A tablet, smartphone or laptop to take notes in lectures and seminars
  • Stationery
  • USB stick and / or portable hard drive
  • College-branded white laboratory coat
  • College-branded blue kennel coat
  • Appropriate waterproof outdoor clothing and footwear for outdoor practicals
  • Strong steel toe capped boots for practical sessions.
  • Roughly £150 to cover the costs of field trips and visits over the duration of your programme
  • Training equipment will be required (i.e. clicker and target stick) for the training related modules (this module can be selected as an option on the programme)
  • The college has a strict policy of not allowing work boots inside college buildings – you will need to have alternative footwear (shoes or trainers) to attend lectures and tutorials
  • A wide range of resources are available for use both on and offsite for dissertation projects but it may not be possible to purchase/service all requests therefore students need to be aware that they may need to self-fund some elements.
