Our Level 5 Diploma continues on from Level 4 and will see you two thirds of the way to a full Bachelor's Degree in Animal Science & Technology. Covering 4 individual learning units, Level 5 will ensure you are well versed in animal welfare law and can apply this knowledge in practice. You will be introduced to the importance of good experimental design, and explore the subjects of toxicology, and genetic alteration in animals.

WHAT OUR STUDENTS SAY...

"My studies with CLAST whilst challenging have been very enjoyable. 

They have helped me progress throughout my career,

as well as given me the opportunity to make some close friends in the industry. 

All the teachers were very knowledgeable in their 

fields and very approachable, even for the silly questions."
