Animal Welfare

Our courses introduce you to a range of animal care methods and science topics, from feeding and nutrition science, handling and behaviour to the practical and theoretical elements of animal health.

Animal Welfare and Management is one of Moulton College’s most popular subject areas, and for students passionate about the well-being of animals, our courses offer a platform to progress into the areas of conservation, animal management or animal care.

Our courses introduce you to a range of animal care methods and science topics, from feeding and nutrition science, handling and behaviour to the practical and theoretical elements of animal health.
