On this course, you will discover how the scientific study of animal behaviour and welfare is an exciting and rapidly changing field. It allows us to increase our understanding of the diverse ways in which non-human animals function and react to their environment. An animal’s welfare can range on a sliding scale from very poor to excellent; when managing animals in captivity or conserving them in the wild, it is important that we understand how we can try to meet their biological needs.

Why Study Animal Behaviour and Welfare with us?

This course offers an integrated, scientific approach to the study of the theory and practice of animal behaviour and welfare, and the wider role of this discipline within the biological sciences. It includes a combination of academic skills development, practical experience and the enhancement of wider employability skills, drawing on staff expertise in teaching, research and industry.

You will be taught at Reaseheath College in Year 1, and 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 houses over 1,000 animals.
