Can I choose more than one workplace for my Animal Studies or Animal Care work placement?

Yes, you can complete your practical training at more than one establishment if you have the opportunity to do so. Whilst it’s not compulsory, training at two different workplaces can be very beneficial and provide you with valuable experiences. However, in saying this we would recommend that you limit your practical training to no more than two different organisations.

Please keep in mind, when choosing these workplaces, your practical placement must correspond with the species-specific unit that you choose as your elective unit.

Finally, we require a signed ‘Workplace Approval Form’ for each placement to ensure the suitability of the placement for your studies.
