The Animal Studies BSc (Hons) top-up programme provides a balanced package of skills and knowledge, tailored for those wishing to enter a profession attached to the animal care sector, or simply wanting to obtain degree level education and enter a different career path. Students will develop and advance their existing knowledge in the core themes of animal welfare, behaviour and conservation. In addition, students will design and implement a research study of their choice. Personal and professional development is embedded within the course to maximise students’ employability within the industry. This course is based at our rural Northop campus, set in the stunning north Wales countryside, with access to a rare breeds farm, animal unit, equestrian facility and woodland. Off site visits to animal charities, wildlife centres and other industry related venues form part of the course.
