“I worked as an Accountant and Company Auditor for 10 years prior to teaching – this was in the Medical Industry and Private Training Industry. I decided to teach to offer my knowledge to others, and have been teaching for seven years.”

What our students say

“I enjoy studying locally as it means I don't have to move away from home. I love working closely with the animals and the tutors are really supportive”

Ronnie Smith Higher National Certificate - Diploma Level 4 in Animal Management

“I enjoy the atmosphere of this University as it is not as populated as other Universities, making it easier to concentrate on my studies. UCR was recommended by my tutors from Rotherham College, and they made me believe I could do it.”
