I went to Newton Rigg but doing animal management. We are talking 7 years ago so might have changed but I really enjoyed it. The lecturers are knowledgeable and the college owns plenty of good land too. From what I know talking to game keeping students you can keep your dogs and ferrets on campus, for any spare time you have. There's not much going on in the nearest town mind so if you enjoy partying on a weekend don't expect too much!
