Studying at our Middleton campus...

We have over 700 animals which include small mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, alpacas, meerkats, rhea, bats, farm animals, cats and 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.

My course gave me experience I couldn’t have got anywhere else. I completed hours of work experience with a hugely diverse range of animals and gained experience in variety of places. Get involved with as much as you can; join clubs, meet people who are not on your course, volunteer for projects.
