Our Witton Park campus provides the ideal venue for students wishing to undertake a range of courses in Animal Studies and Foundation Learning, supported by computer and library facilities that are linked to the main College campus at Preston.

There are extensive practical facilities on site for animal care and management, with a wide range of companion animals including rabbits and small rodents as well as collections of reptiles, amphibians, fish and invertebrates.

A variety of housing is used and students have access to specialist equipment for animal husbandry and a dedicated dog grooming salon.

Students also have opportunities to visit local, animal-based industries such as dog trainers and farms. They will be offered a range of interesting guest speakers throughout the College year.
