Developed in response to continued public interest in animal behaviour & welfare, fundamental legislative changes affecting how animals are kept & employer demand for highly qualified individuals within a range of animal management settings, this programme is designed to provide students with a comprehensive understanding of animal behaviour.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.
