The UK animal industry consists of a very large number of increasingly diverse enterprises, each demanding different knowledge and skills. Despite this diversity, success within the industry requires practical competence and commercial awareness. This course is the first two years of the BSc (Hons)Animal Management course and allows students to graduate after two years with a qualification which allows then to work in a wide range of animal industries or to continue to a third years of study to obtain a BSc. The course takes a holistic approach to animal management and is aimed at providing students with this broad knowledge. A wide range of species are available to enable students to gain sound practical animal husbandry skills, which are then complemented by an academic programme that covers topics such as nutrition, breeding, health and behaviour. These will be combined with a deeper understanding of business and trade as it relates to the animal sector.
