BSc (Hons) Animal Management graduate
I was certain I wanted to be an animal keeper and once course tutor Steve Nash had shown me around the extensive and impressive facilities, I knew that by studying at Sparsholt I would increase my chances of working with animals.
I absolutely loved the course, finding the vast range of topics relevant to numerous animal fields and a real advantage to getting on to postgraduate courses. I applied for a Masterâ€™s in Microbiology at the University of Surrey, Veterinary Epidemiology at the Royal Veterinary College and Taxonomy and Biodiversity at Imperial College London and was accepted on to all three, demonstrating the versatility of the course.
Of the three offers I opted for the MSc in Veterinary Epidemiology collaboratively at the Royal Veterinary College and the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine in London. I would like to do a PhD in, and ultimately work in, conservation.
I never realised my potential before coming to Sparsholt – the lecturers really support you and always encourage you to work to your best potential. I never previously thought of myself as a scientific/intelligent person but now I am looking to study for a PhD. I feel like Sparsholt really enabled me to realise what I was capable of because I was studying a field I loved so much.
