Potential Job Roles

"I decided to enrol on the FdSc Animal Science degree at the University Centre South Devon. The tutors were extremely supportive and encouraged me to complete my top up year at University of Plymouth. I had gained so much from completing the Foundation Degree it was an easy decision for me. I went on to graduate with a Bsc (Hons) in Animal Conservation Science. I'm so grateful I decided to return to College; every step of my journey has presented me with new opportunities. I now work at the College as a Lecturer in Animal Science helping students take the first steps toward their chosen career."Lorelei Kirwan
