Our animal management courses are perfect for those who have a real passion for working with animals.
You will receive not just technical knowledge about the health, welfare and management of a range of animal species but also the confidence and transferrable skills that will allow you to progress effectively into management roles.

We have over 600 animals including small mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, alpacas, meerkats, rhea, bats, farm animals, cats, dogs and aquatics. As part of our courses we have a small animal production farm where students help raise animals for food production. Additionally, we are members of Rochdale and District Riding Club and have a team of students who compete with our Shetland ponies.
I had a lot of laughs with some great people at Hopwood Hall College, but I also achieved a great deal academically too. Working in a job at the same time as studying, I found managing your time well crucial to achieving a stable work/life balance.
