If you're thinking of turning your fishkeeping hobby into a career, why not visit Sparsholt College's open evening on Thursday, June 28?

It's the last course information open event for this academic year and the College will be open on June 28 2012 from 4-7pm with staff available to provide informal guidance regarding courses and apprenticeships, finance and bursaries, accommodation, transport and careers advice. Current students will also be on hand to say what life is really like at campus and provide tours of the campus.

Many students — whether they are completing their GCSEs, thinking about degree courses or looking to change careers — are keen to follow a path that will take them directly into an industry they are passionate about. The vocational nature of the offered at Sparsholt College helps students achieve this.

Sparsholt College is based in Hampshire and offers many courses including Fishery Studies and Aquatics, Agriculture, Animal Management, Arboriculture and Forestry, Conservation Management, Equine Studies, Game and Wildlife, Horticulture, Motor Vehicle, Public Services and Sports.  

The extensive campus facilities — including a fishing lake and dedicated aquatics centre, an Olympic training standard equine centre, acres of gardens, glasshouses and polytunnels, natural woodland, sports centre, a collection of rare and exotic animals and 400 acres of farmland — all provide students with the latest resource and facilities to practice their skills at first hand, getting real life experience to prepare them for their future.

For people looking to develop their interests, or maybe gain qualifications or certificates to get on in their job, Sparsholt offers a wide range of short and part-time courses.

The College also runs accredited courses for the British Horse Society and the Royal Horticultural Society.
