Study type Taught


The aim of the MSc programmes is to provide a progression route for students, from undergraduate degrees in the biological and psychological sciences to gain knowledge and skills in the area of animal behaviour and welfare. There is an increasing demand within the animal behaviour and welfare industry for people to have both academic and practical skills. Therefore, the programme is designed to build higher academic skills, professional skills and emphasises the vocational and applied nature of the subject area.

This programme is designed to allow those completing a relevant degree to progress to postgraduate study. It is designed to bring students from a biological science background into the field of animal behaviour and welfare. It does this by offering a practical and applied element to the course, allowing students to develop academic, professional and vocational skills, required for the animal behaviour sector. Current BSc Applied Animal Behaviour and Training students may progress onto the equivalent MSc route, whereas, the BSc Animal Behaviour & Welfare students may take the additional proposed pathway, to further develop their critical awareness in their chosen area of study. Applications from external applicants with biological sciences, veterinary or psychological background are also encouraged.
