Course summary

This programme provides students with the knowledge and understanding of the principles and practice of animal nutrition in production and companion animals. This enables them to apply a scientific and research-led approach at a practical level to improve performance, health and welfare.

WHY THIS PROGRAMME

  • Globally, this is the first Animal Nutrition masters-level programme, that is delivered entirely part-time and online, within an interactive online learning environment.
  • It is delivered in collaboration with senior academics/nutritionists from SRUC, who along with University staff have an international reputation in the animal nutrition, clinical nutrition and feed industry sectors, with some staff having Registered Nutritionist status (Society for Nutrition).
  • An attractive option for busy working professionals looking to advance their knowledge and skill-set to support them in their career aspirations, whether they want to work within the animal nutrition sector or want to continue their development into further study for a PhD.
  • Addresses a critical gap for those aspiring to work in the feed industry, tackling a lack of appreciation of nutrition in the context of the commercial animal feed industry, in-part through our links with industry and contributions from industry members.
  • Enhance your conceptual, analytical and presentation skills to use effective and modern methods of describing and analysing scientific, research and dietary ration data to inform decisions on managing, designing and evaluating diets in the contexts of the interactions between diet, production, health and disease.
  • Opportunity to enhance your knowledge and consolidate your expertise in the field.

CAREER PROSPECTS

This programme is ideally suited for those individuals who want to pursue a career in the commercial animal nutrition or veterinary nutrition sectors, or for those who wish to go on to further academic and research endeavours through studying for a PhD.
