    For a while I didn't want to go to university, but lately I've wanted to do something with animals, and then today I found the Animal Management course at Writtle College. I'm currently in sixth form college, doing my AS exams, so will be at uni 2014/15. Just wanted to see if anyone out there is like me? Also, if anyone has been to Writtle or goes to Writtle at the moment, feel free to say what it's like, especially if you do the Animal Management course.

    Me too, this last year of sixth form is going to be so boring! I went to an open day in June and it was amazing, so definitely will be applying as soon as I can in September.

    Heya - I'm a third year student on this course (AnMan C&Z) so feel free to plague me with questions!

    If companion and zoo is what you're interested in definitely do it it's a lot of fun. I loved our extra module this year (second year) and it was much better than the one that normal animal managers did! The course is good overall (some fab teachers!) but first year is definitely the best year. Second year is much harder than first and slows down a little - will let you know on third year!

    Other words of advice: get your dissertation research done and dusted in the summer between 2nd and 3rd year - I've almost finished mine and I'm glad I'm more prepared! So defo think about that once you get into 2nd year

    I just cant make up my mind! Although I might work in a zoo or something for a few years while I save money to do a vet course, but Im not sure. I need to get other work experience too, i have lambing and milking and everything planned for Easter but thats ages away! Im going to Writtle for Wednesday, cant wait to see what it looks like The Harper Adams courses all have placement years too you see which look amazing, so I cant decide :/ Oh well, at least I have almost a year haha. UCAS application is now sent off, finally :P

    Well I just got my conditional offer for C&Z Animal Management so, as long as I get at least all C's, which should be fine unless something goes majorly wrong, I'm going to Writtle next September! Anyone else heard who's applying to go next year heard back yet? I'd love to know some people before I go! Anyone who is going next year, feel free to add me on facebook- Melissa Hunt. My profile picture is the one with red hair next to my boyfriend in a batman top. Or Twitter, MelHunt182. I really want to get to know people!
