Next available course:
Start the journey towards your career with animals through the Level 2 Animal and Applied Science. You can study your GCSEs as part of this one-year study programme, with dedicated GCSE classes delivered by our expert tutors. This course actually consists of two level 2 qualifications: one in Animal Care and the other in Applied Science. You will therefore have two attempts at completing a level 2 qualification and experience 2 qualifications. This means lots of variety, a range of industry placement opportunities, professional talks and exciting field trips. Upon successful completion, you will be able to apply for our Level 3 Animal Science or Applied Science.
You will need grade D in Maths or English, and a D in Science.
Teaching and Learning Methods
The course is timetabled over 21 contact hours per week, which includes your main study programme, tutorials and industry experience. You will also be expected to spend at least 21 hours a week individual study (either at home or in College).
This course is mostly theory but does involve some practical tasks and of course, a relevant industry placement.
