On this course, you will discover how the study of animal behaviour is providing us with a fresh insight into how animals communicate and learn, what they feel and how they interact with their environment. The study of animal behaviour and welfare is changing attitudes towards animals, informing protection legislation, and providing us with a better understanding of how to meet animals’ needs.

Why Study Animal Behaviour and Welfare with us?

This course gives you both practical experience with animals and an academic understanding of animal behaviour, their biology and their welfare. You will be taught at Reaseheath College in Year 1, and then taught at the University of Chester in Years 2 and 3. Reaseheath College is a full member of the British and Irish Association of Zoos and Aquariums (BIAZA) and has over 1,000 animals and 125 species.

During this course you develop a scientific approach to the study of animal behaviour and welfare, gaining a sound grounding in this area of biology and scientific method.
