Animal welfare students welcome international guests at Solihull College and University Centre

Apr 19, 2023 | News

Animal Welfare & Veterinary Nursing students and staff from Solihull College & University Centre were delighted to showcase the College’s state-of-the-art facilities to guests from the Netherlands this month.

As part of a UK study tour, Greenery and Animal staff and students from Curio, an educational organisation in the Netherlands, were keen to visit Blossomfield Campus and find out more about Animal Welfare & Veterinary Nursing students’ educational experience.

The visiting students were taken on a tour of the department before taking part in a range of animal handling activities. The visit concluded with an animal themed English session delivered by ESOL Lecturer, Amna Qureshi.

Head of School for Animal Welfare & Veterinary Nursing, Claire Powell comments: “It was great to share what we do and exchange experiences and ideas with fellow students and tutors from a similar school in Holland.

Future visit

“We have also accepted their warm welcome to complete the exchange by going to visit them in the future!”

The College houses a diverse range of animals with specialist rooms and habitats to accommodate them including barns, exotics, and aquatics rooms, plus a large outdoor area for the larger animals including goats and donkeys.

Courses are offered right up to degree level, with apprenticeships and part time adult courses also available.
