Animal Studies


If you are passionate about animals and want to work with all creatures great and small, turn your passion into a career with a course in veterinary nursing or animal studies.

Our animal and veterinary courses are ideal for anyone with a passion for animals, and can take you anywhere. A course from CIT can give you all the practical training you need to work in the animal care industry.

You could work in a veterinary clinic providing quality care to a range of sick and injured animals, or you could work with companion animals in a dog day care program, boarding kennels, cattery, grooming salon, or pet store. You could work for yourself as a dog walker or pet sitter, or with animal welfare or wildlife care agencies. Your course will include work experience in our very own CIT dog day care program.

The Canberra region is rich in animal life - come and join the industry.
