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.

Throughout the course, you'll be challenged to apply your thinking to different scientific issues and you'll have the exciting opportunity to take part in a five-day field trip studying animal behaviour.

Your future career

This course provides opportunities for careers in key positions in a range of animal-based fields, including zoos, the pet trade, stables or kennels, veterinary practice management, wildlife conservation management and the pharmaceutical industry. Some graduates have become teachers and others have gone on to postgraduate study.

Transferable skills developed on this course are valuable in other non-scientific areas of industry, commerce and the media. These include time management, statistical and planning skills, communication and presentation skills, and an ability to think critically.
