Overview


This course is designed to offer you the latest academic insights into current research in animal behaviour, their biology and their welfare alongside practical application of this research. This will equip you with the skills and knowledge needed to develop new ideas and evaluate current processes and practices in both animal behaviour and animal welfare science.

As well as being enrolled at a partner college, students are also enrolled at Oxford Brookes University and so are entitled to use many of the University’s facilities, such as the library and online resources.

How to apply


Entry requirements

Specific entry requirements

A Level: Students will usually have achieved an average grade (GPA) of 55% in the Fd(Sc) in Animal Behaviour and Welfare or an equivalent relevant animal related level 5 qualification of 240 CAT points, subject to individual credit rating by Oxford Brookes University.

Students who have studied the HND in Animal Management or equivalent HND will need an overall merit profile.

Students who have not studied the Oxford Brooke University Fd(Sc) in Animal Behaviour and Welfare will need to produce a transcript of the modules and learning outcomes they have studied on their level 5 course to allow credit rating by Oxford Brookes University and evidence coverage of sufficient comparable content to allow entrance to this BSc year.

There are limited places on the course and the above requirements are minimum requirements. Gaining a place on the course will also be subject to a successful interview and a strong UCAS application with an appropriate reference.

Applicants with non-standard entry qualifications may be admitted with APL (accreditation for prior learning) or APEL (accreditation for prior experiential learning) in accordance with university regulations.

Students must be at least 19½ years of age.
