( Dawn Sutcliffe, 26/09/2017 ) Q:

Hi I have studied at BSC/HND level in Animal Behaviour and Welfare and have lectured for over 7 years on the subject. Teaching modules including Biology, Animal Disease and Welfare, Anatomy and Physiology, Animal Management and Husbandry, Biology, Ecology and Nutrition. I was a large animal zoo keeper before that, and as such I have covered a lot of topics in this course. However, I am really interested in learning the homeopathic and holistic routes for the care of animals and wish to go down that route. Would I be able to APL some of the learning modules and , if so, would that have a reflection on the fees? Or is there a different course that I could do with yourselves? Thank you Dawn

( 03/10/2017 ) A:

Hello Dawn,

Thank you for getting in touch.

Because this is a 100 hour certificate course, we cannot take prior learning into account. We can look at recognising your previous qualifications for our diplomas though.
