I think there are a lot of options and for someone like me who has been trying to get into the vet nursing industry but not able to find the 15 hours work required this was a great bridge to build on my skills, knowledge and confidence. I have now been accepted into vet nursing based on having the confidence through the course to find voluntary work in a vet clinic.

My tutor was so lovely, always giving me positive feedback and very useful comments if it was obvious i had struggled in the module. She also went into depth to explain anything to me which i found very helpful as i could gain even more knowledge!

What is Ethology?

Ethology is the study of animal behaviour which examines animal communication, animal culture, animal language, animal sexual behaviour and learning with its importance to training. Generally Ethology is more concerned with the patterns and processes of behavior across a range of groups rather than just focusing on one particular species (see our Animal Behaviour courses).. however in relation to training needs our other courses are focused on single groups (horses, cats and dogs).

Ethology is different from psychology (or comparative psychology) in that it does not consider animal behaviour in reference to human behaviour, but rather from what is understand about an animal’s anatomy, physiology etc.
