    Description

    This degree covers everything from animal behaviour and welfare to reproduction and nutrition, and could lead to a vocational career in the animal sector.

    You'll study scientific principles, such as:

    • physiology
    • genetics
    • biochemistry

    You complement this with animal behaviour topics like behaviour, breeding and parasitology.

    You gain practical experience through regular visits to local animal centres and the University's two farms. Work placement opportunities also enhance your employability.

    Our Animal Science research group means you study at the cutting edge of the discipline and will develop a high level of scientific knowledge.

    Study at the cutting edge

    Our curriculum is shaped by the discoveries of the University's specialist Animal Science research group, who have particular expertise in the assessment of animal welfare.

    • You will study modules designed around the latest research discoveries of our staff, meaning you will be learning at the cutting-edge of the discipline.
    • You have chance to conduct research of your own by undertaking an optional research project in Stage 3.

    As the degree progresses, you can tailor it to your own animal interests, specialising in either:

    • companion animals (including cats, dogs, horses and other less common pet species), or
    • farm animals (including cattle, sheep, pigs and poultry)

    whilst also maintaining some study of the other animal grouping.
