Animal Husbandry

This course provides professional level training for people wishing to work in agriculture at a technician or management level; in animal industries including:

  • Farm Production (Meat, dairy, wool)
  • Allied Trades (Farm supplies, veterinary services etc)
  • Equine (Racing, Breeding, horse riding)

Employment possibilities include as farm managers, technical representatives, trainers or consultants.

This is a professional foundation level course which provides a number of unique advantages over animal husbandry degrees and diplomas that are offered elsewhere:

  • Tutors are exceptionally well qualified and reside in both the UK & Australia (and that provides you with a unique broad based international perspective on animal husbandry
  • Courses are continually being reviewed and revised
  • Student support, including access to tutors is less restricted than what some institutions offer (Compare us with other schools)
  • With colleges or affiliate colleges operating in 5 different countries, ACS courses have a higher international visibility than institutions operating in only one country.
