Summary

Writtle University College provides a stimulating environment for you to pursue your studies in animal welfare and conservation, supported by research from the Centre for Equine and Animal Science (CEQAS). Our highly qualified teaching staff support students in exploring industry relevant links between conservation and welfare, as well as focusing on the nutritional and genetic issues in animal welfare. Our MSc Animal Welfare and Conservation has strong industry links with Colchester Zoo, Essex Wildlife Trust, Natures Menu, Zoological Society of London (including London Zoo and Whipsnade Zoo) and Universities Federation for Animal Welfare.

As part of this course we offer MSc students two places on the annual trip to UmPhafa Wildlife reserve each June in collaboration with Colchester Zoo. Alongside this, all students have the opportunity to develop and extend their knowledge of a diverse range of animal species through access to a wide range of livestock, exotics and companion animals on site. On attaining your MSc at WUC you will be a highly skilled and employable postgraduate who is ready to excel in your future career in the areas of animal welfare, conservation, nutrition, zoo keeping and research.
