The BSc (Hons) Animal Behaviour and Welfare Top Up programme can be studied full-time for 1 year or taken part-time across two years, with classes and practical sessions taught at the College's Witney and Common Leys Farm campuses.
At Common Leys, you will find an animal unit that runs commercial activities, such as the working farm, dog grooming parlour and canine hydrotherapy centre. The Animal Care Centre is fully equipped and houses a wide range of species to include reptiles, amphibians, invertebrates, fish, small mammals, large farm mammals and birds.
The unique feature of this degree is the combination of contemporary scientific principles and practical, hands-on training, ensuring that our graduates are successful in both vocational and academic settings. A strong component of the course is work-based learning, equipping you with skills you need for a successful career in the Animal industry.
The course provides a flexible approach that will enable students to apply theoretical knowledge to their work within the Animal Management industry. For students who are not currently employed in the industry, there will be an opportunity to work at Common Leys Farm.
Students will typically attend 2 days a week consisting of 10 hours of lectures and are required to spend additional time independently on self-directed study.
Teaching methods vary from module to module. The diverse range of teaching methods and assessment types allows students to develop a wide range of skills. You will experience lectures and laboratory-based activities at Witney, sessions at Common Leys Farm, seminars, peer and self-assessment, online resources and tutorial support.
Staff involved with the delivery, teaching and assessment of the course have a range of industry experience and academic skills and a keen involvement within research, whilst trips and guest speakers help strengthen links to the workplace and development of skills for employment.
