Subject

Animal science

The foundation degree in Animal Conservation, taught at Bridgwater and Taunton College, will help you develop an understanding of the essential theoretical and practical aspects of the management of animal species, populations and ecosystems with relation to ecology, environmental management and human impact. The programme offers opportunities to study animal management, monitoring, distribution and conservation within a range of environments and human/industry perspectives.

Modules

You will be required to attend a series of lectures, seminars and practical lessons; some modules require self-study with tutor support. Guest speakers from a variety of conservation-based organisations will deliver presentations to provide you with an industry perspective. Links with industry are also encouraged through dissertation topics.

What students say


Sorry, no information to show

This is usually because there were too few respondents in the data we receive to be able to provide results about the subject at this university.

After graduation


The stats in this section relate to the general subject area/s at this university – not this specific course. We show this where there isn't enough data about the course, or where this is the most detailed info available to us.

What are graduates doing after six months?

This is what graduates told us they were doing (and earning), shortly after completing their course. We've crunched the numbers to show you if these immediate prospects are high, medium or low, compared to those studying this subject/s at other universities.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

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; much 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, you need a degree to get these jobs (and probably always have done), and graduates in them report that they got the jobs that they wanted. So the stats you see might not completely represent just how useful these degrees are for getting into animal care careers.

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

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
