The Course

Summary

The MBio Bioveterinary Science degree at Lincoln gives students the opportunity to learn the science that underlies animal health and disease. The degree combines key elements of animal science with academically rigorous laboratory analysis. Students are introduced to the processes surrounding animal health including life histories of pathogens and parasites, infection and immunity, prevention measures, diagnosis and treatments. Students have the opportunity to study these issues in a range of animal species, including exotic and wild animals, as well as in humans. The Bioveterinary Science degree will be of particular interest to those students who wish to be trained as all round (companion and production) animal scientists, but who wish to focus particularly on the veterinary related aspects within animal science. This course aims to prepare graduates for a range of careers in animal-related professions. These include research and development, technical support and sales of animal pharmaceuticals, vaccine and nutrition products, as well as in animal health, laboratory diagnostics, toxicology, forensics, wildlife parks and zoos. Many continue their study at PhD level, and some go on to study veterinary medicine. This course aims to prepare graduates for a range of careers in animal-related professions.
