Find a courseExpand
The one-year BSc (top-up) in Animal Behaviour and Welfare course is aimed at people who wish to
upgrade a Level 5 qualification in animal-related studies, such as the FdSc in Animal Behaviour and
Welfare, to a BSc (Hons) qualification. This course allows you to develop and expand on your
scientific knowledge of animal behaviour and welfare, alongside practical application of this
knowledge within animal-related industries. Within this course there are opportunities to develop
your academic skills, through critical analysis and evaluation of contemporary research.
Graduates may progress into graduate roles within animal-related industries or may continue their
studies by progressing onto Level 7 studies, such as Masters degree courses. Previous graduates
have progressed into careers in behaviour and training, some have entered into work in zoos, animal
rescue centres and veterinary practices.
This course is taught at Witney College, at the Common Leys Campus or Solihull College. Therefore you may need to consider travel costs depending on your proximity to the campus.
Please note, tuition fees for Home students may increase in subsequent years both for new and continuing students in line with an inflationary amount determined by government. Oxford Brookes University intends to maintain its fees for new and returning Home students at the maximum permitted level.
Tuition fees for International students may increase in subsequent years both for new and continuing students.
The following factors will be taken into account by the University when it is setting the annual fees: inflationary measures such as the retail price indices, projected increases in University costs, changes in the level of funding received from Government sources, admissions statistics and access considerations including the availability of student support.
How and when to pay
