Support for students studying Animal Behaviour and Welfare
We understand that going into full-time or part-time education can have a big effect on people's lives. There may be a lot of questions you want to ask before you start on a course, and there may be times during your studies when you will want to seek information and advice from a reliable source.
Students studying at Abingdon and Witney College can access a dedicated independent team of advice and guidance staff. Available throughout the year, they provide information, advice and confidential support services for all students. They are there to enable you to make informed decisions about your studies, and to help you deal with any difficulties which may arise. Find out more about the full range of support services on the college's website.
At Solihull College, as places on the course are restricted, you will get to know your tutors and peers well and will have structured teaching sessions within a classroom setting rather than a lecture theatre. Student support is one of our priorities – subject specific support and academic skills development is provided using one-to-one tutorials with a personal tutor, group tutorials, workshop sessions with module tutors and via the Professional and Academic Skills module. You will also have access to a wide range of other support services such as career advisers, counsellors, student finance guidance, a subject-specific librarian and student welfare department. We are well equipped to support students with additional needs via integrated support from the additional needs team, the programme leader and personal tutor.
Abingdon & Witney College’s Common Leys Farm is a 60-acre campus near Hailey, Witney, which provides the practical facilities for a range of land-based courses including animal care. The college provides an ideal learning environment with purpose-built indoor and outdoor units for small animals, a grooming parlour and modern kennel spaces. Students also have access to some larger animals such as horses, sheep, goats and cattle.
