This programme will provide you with an understanding of those aspects of animal science which underpin both the role and use of animals in society and in modern veterinary and laboratory animal practice.
Years 1 and 2: The first two years of the programme will consist of chemistry, biology, animal husbandry and comparative biomedical sciences such as anatomy and physiology, combined with biomolecular sciences and a wide choice of related subjects.
Years 3 and 4: In year three, the focus will be on pathological sciences (for example infectious disease and molecular oncology), and will embrace the principles and effect of drug action.
The final taught year will include courses on scientific methods, statistics, population medicine, epidemiology and animal welfare, ethics and legislation with a significant research project.
