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 able to apply their knowledge to emerging management issues. Did you know? As part of your degree programme, you will have the opportunity to take part in a five-day field trip studying animal behaviour. This programme seeks to provide you with a stimulating and challenging experience, and is intended for those aspiring to work in animal care, welfare or animalbased industries, from zoos and wildlife parks, to pet shops, veterinary situations, farms and wildlife conservation. Special consideration is given to scientific understanding of animal physiology and welfare. This programme also provides a vehicle for the development of a set of transferable skills appropriate to a wide range of animal care, welfare and management settings, and for further advanced study.
