Make sure you check on the university, college or conservatoire website for any updates about course changes as a result of COVID-19.

Course summary

The study of how and why animals behave as they do is a subject of enduring fascination, and one that helps humans understand the welfare needs of other animals. In addition, understanding the behaviour of animals has become an essential tool in promoting their conservation. Our course offers you an ideal opportunity to explore the study of animal behaviour practically and theoretically. Foundation Year courses have been designed for students who do not have the necessary academic qualifications needed to enter directly into the first year of a degree but who have the ability and commitment to do so.
