Find out more about the TEF.

This degree is the first of its kind in the UK. It’s ideal for those who are fascinated by the human-animal relationship and would like to work to further the therapeutic benefits of this relationship. You’ll explore the role that animals have in enriching human lives – as pets, in zoos, farms and conservation contexts. We have over 70 animal species on site for students to learn with. You’ll graduate ready to make a difference in an exciting and expanding employment industry.

You'll benefit from opportunities to gain industry experience on-campus in our commercial animal therapy centres as well as with our industry partners in Gloucestershire, across the UK and internationally. Many of our students gain their graduate roles with the organisations with whom they completed their work placements. Graduate destinations could include zoos, charities, animal education, animal-assisted therapy, using animals in counselling and bereavement, and the pet and veterinary sector.
