*Our Animal Science subject area is top in the UK for student satisfaction in the Complete University Guide 2021. It is also first in the UK for overall satisfaction and learning community (WGU analysis of unpublished NSS data 2019) and our BSc (Hons) Animal Behaviour, Welfare and Conservation Science with foundation year programme is one of the courses in the subject area. This broad-based course is designed to equip you with the knowledge and skills required to enter a variety of professions within the animal sector.
Students will develop their knowledge in the core themes of animal behaviour, welfare and conservation. At level 6 students will design and implement their own research project, enabling them to specialise in an area of their choice. Personal and professional development is embedded within the course to maximise students’ employability within the industry and to enable you to focus upon your chosen career path.
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.
**The Foundation year is taught at our Wrexham campus, with Level 4 (year 2) studies moving to our Northop campus.
