Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
These stats refer to the prospects for graduates from both general animal studies courses and those for particular animals (such as equine science). Graduates don't generally get jobs as vets when they graduate; the most common jobs tend to be roles caring for animals, such as veterinary nurses. Some of these jobs are not currently classified as professional level occupations, but in reality, graduates report that their degree was necessary in getting the job, and that they got the jobs that they wanted, meaning the stats you see might not completely represent just how useful these degrees are for getting into animal care careers.
