Course summary

THE COURSE

This unique degree programme offers the opportunity to study the behaviour and welfare assessment of a range of domestic and exotic species and apply this to their management.

There is a strong emphasis on applying theoretical knowledge to practical situations using our excellent animal facilities.

The degree aims to build on the skills and knowledge that were developed during related Level 5 qualifications.

Students have the opportunity to specialise through the Dissertation: 10,000 words on a relevant subject area.

LEARNING AND TEACHING APPROACH

This programme is delivered with a variety of learning and teaching approaches to include all students learning styles and preferences.

For all modules, theory lectures are delivered that aim to deliver the core content and provide the underpinning knowledge. To complement the theory lectures, students have group seminars / practical sessions that are used to reinforce concepts delivered theoretically.

The teaching methods focus on facilitating a student centred approach to enhance the independent learning that takes place outside of the classroom.

Students can choose to study at either our Bishop Burton campus, in East Yorkshire, or our Riseholme campus, in Lincolnshire.
