As a £1 billion industry with more than 13,000 businesses in the UK alone, there are so many employment opportunities in the sectors relating to animal management and science. This course has been designed to help students stand out to these employers by providing a broad base of knowledge and practical skills in key areas including animal biology, behaviour, welfare, health and nutrition.
You will learn the analytical and research skills required for further study, and you will also have to obtain and undertake a work placement with an organisation dealing with wildlife, pets or livestock. This approach of combining practical experience of handling animals with in-depth theoretical knowledge and work-based learning is what sets the FdSc in Animal Management at UCW apart.
