Course summary

The BSc (Hons) in Animal Management Top-Up will develop students’ applied understanding on how animals are presently managed, and will encourage consideration to be placed on how practices may evolve in the future. The programme is designed to enable students to develop competencies in practices fundamental to maintaining the overall health and wellbeing of animals. Programme and module outcomes will provide an opportunity for students to gain opportunities to develop their employability within the animal management industry through undertaking work-based experience. Students will undertake independent research projects designed to develop individual competence in following lines of enquiry, and interpreting information/data in order to make effective conclusions in line with an original problem or question set. Students will be encouraged to review how practices and technology will change to meet the needs of future generations, and provide opportunities for students to develop the knowledge and skills required to work effectively within, and be of value to, tomorrow’s animal care sector. Students will develop knowledge and understanding of how innovation drives the evolution of key areas within animal management such as veterinary medicine, in-situ and ex-situ wildlife conservation, animal rescue, animal behaviour and nutrition. Key Aims: • Analyse innovative and sustainable practices and technology which meet the needs of the present and future animal management industry; • Develop academic research skills which enable questions related to the animal management industry to be investigated and conclusions drawn; • Research business practices and review attributes driving present and future success within the animal management industry; • Develop and apply competencies in the management of animals and reflect on personal performance to improve employability now and in the future; • Inspect and report on the development and potential future of anthrozoological interactions and the role of animals in human society. This course is primarily designed for face-to-face learning, with attendance during lessons for the specified hours within the validation document. However, there may be periods of study where the government advises TEC Partnership that it is not safe to open campuses, or there is limited access due to social distancing measures. If the campus is closed, TEC Partnership will deliver your sessions online and offer you the necessary support and resources remotely. If there is limited access due to social distancing measures a blended model will be adopted, with some lessons taking place in small groups and others using online sessions and support. We will make decisions on the delivery hours for each programme as government advice becomes clearer. For the placements in your programme, TEC Partnership will do everything it can to ensure you have the opportunity to complete the placement element of your programme and/or potentially, where possible, amend the programme, removing the requirement for placement (or part thereof) if required.
