Course summary

Overview

If you are passionate about animal welfare, health and behaviour, this course will help you develop the skills and knowledge needed for you to do well in the animal industry.

You will learn about animal genetics, breeding, diseases and more, and will have the opportunity to work with a range of employers in the field by taking advantage of the University’s Life Sciences Industry Liaison Lab at Discovery Park.

Why study Animal Science?

Recent changes in animal welfare laws in Britain have meant that there is now more control and regulation of all animal-based enterprises. This has resulted in a greater need for a scientific approach to animal management and welfare across all businesses that work with animals. These sectors require well-prepared animal scientists who are able to apply their knowledge to emerging management issues.

If you are passionate about a career in this important sector, our course will help you develop as a highly practical and knowledgeable animal scientist who is skilled to work in areas such as zoos and wildlife parks, pet shops, veterinary situations, farms and wildlife conservation.

Teaching

You will be taught through a combination of lectures, laboratory practicals, field trips, visits to employers, seminars, guest speaker lectures and practical workshops. You'll also benefit from tutorial sessions where you can discuss your work and progress with an individual personal tutor, and small group seminars focusing on specific topics.
