Animal Biology

Recognised by the Society of Biology, this course explores the fascinating animal kingdom and the scientific principles that underpin this important and wide-ranging subject area. Your lectures will cover major scientific principles, including anatomy and physiology, behaviour, genetics, ecology, and nutrition. The course focuses on the study of companion and livestock species, and their housing, management and nutrition. Core scientific study is supported by practical animal handling in our specialist Animal Unit. This purpose-built centre houses approximately 150 animals of 40 species. Our unique Brackenhurst Campus is also home to larger animals, including donkeys, horses, sheep, cattle, and goats, as well as a working farm. The course includes field trips to animal health, welfare and conservation organisations and breeding centres. You’ll also hear from external industry professionals through a range of guest lectures. NTU’s courses in Animal Science are 1st in the UK for overall student satisfaction (97% - NSS 2017).
