Course summary

Studying for a degree with an integrated foundation year will offer you a supportive environment if you have been out of education for a few years or do not have the necessary UCAS points from your recent course of study. The foundation year (Year 0) will precede our standard 3-year degree course programmes and enables preparation for degree study, with successful completion granting direct access to the undergraduate course of your choice at Writtle University College. Our biological science-based courses combine both pure and applied sciences in the study of animals. Alongside practical animal management skills are topics relating to the underlying biological principles of biochemistry, genetics and animal growth alongside core subjects of behaviour and nutrition. These courses are for those wishing to have a strong scientific understanding of animal biology and how it relates to animal health and disease, animal growth and their development. Option routes provide specialist teaching of pet behaviour and welfare, zoo and wildlife conservation, and farm livestock technology.If you are interested in animal production and farm animal welfare and are looking for a degree course discussing how we can meet the food demands of society whilst maintaining the health and welfare of the animals in our care then this is your option. This option supports the whole animal teaching, such as the breeding and biosecurity topics on the Animal Management course or genetics and biotechnology on the Animal Science course. This option is for those looking for careers in farm livestock production including farm nutritionist, farm animal health and welfare advisory roles, and precision livestock farming.
