Nottingham Trent University has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.
This course teaches a combination of scientific knowledge and animal management skills. It is highly vocational in nature, with a strong emphasis on practical learning and work experience. You'll focus on animal welfare and its application across a host of sectors. Similar to the BSc (Hons) Animal / Zoo Biology courses, your lectures will cover major scientific principles, including animal anatomy and physiology, behaviour, ecology and nutrition. However, the FdSc involves a slightly different pace of learning, combined with a greater emphasis on applied aspects. Successful completion of the FdSc Animal Science course to a satisfactory level allows progression on to the final-year of BSc (Hons) Animal Biology or BSc (Hons) Zoo Biology. So you can gain a full BSc honours degree in three years.
