The transition from further education to higher education was swift and I was given a lot of help to transition to the higher level of education. Studying both an FdSc and a college course course at Brackenhurst was really beneficial and also an amazing experience.

"Before I started studying my FdSc Animal Science course, I actually studied at Brackenhurst for an Extended Diploma In Animal Management. I loved studying that course so much at Brackenhurst that I never left! The transition from further education to higher education was swift and I was given a lot of help to transition to the higher level of education. I think studying both an FdSc and a college course course at Brackenhurst was really beneficial and also an amazing experience!"

"I chose to study Animal Science at NTU because It related to my love for animals and it gives me opportunities to continue studying and topping up to a BSc or going out and getting a job after I graduate because it is a degree in itself! It allows me to explore my potential career opportunities. I was also enticed to study it because of the trip to Jersey."

"The thing I enjoy most about my course is studying subjects that I want to study. I can complete my assignments about any animal I want, whether that be an animal I want to work with or not! I also enjoy meeting the new people on my course and getting to know them."

"The lecturers and tutors are extremely friendly. They make you feel so welcome whilst studying with them. You can literally go to them and talk to them about anything, whether that be course worries or anything going on at home, they are there for you! They are always willing to help you with your work, they would rather you ask them questions than struggle on your own."

"The facilities at Brackenhurst are amazing! There are so many places to socialise in the summer and the winter. There is also a ping pong table, that me and my friends have spent many hours playing on it after finishing assignments. We also have events at Brackenhurst including our own festival ‘BrackFest’. The facility that I use the most is the Library, I use the computers and I also use range of books in the library to help with my assignments."

"The most valuable thing that I have learned during my course is, that university will probably be one of the best times of your life, even if it does seem stressful! But you just need to enjoy it and experience things that you might never have before!"

"If I was to give advice to a potential student, I would say that you should really manage your time wisely. You have to be able to have a work life balance. You have to be able to spend the correct time on your assignments and make sure you have time to socialise with other students. But you also have to factor in time for work placement, as it required for this course."
