Why you should study Animal Science and Management at WUC… Our BSc (Hons) Animal Science received 100% overall student satisfaction in 2017. Our BSc (Hons) Animal Management and BSc (Hons) Animal Science courses have degree recognition from the Royal Society of Biology. You are able to specialise in a species of your choice. We have over 250 species of animals on campus, including exotic, companion, farm animals and wildlife. Our facilities include a farm, canine therapy centre, equine and animal centre and labs. You will get specialist tours of zoos, farms and laboratories including the opportunity to visit Colchester Zoo and its Umphafa Nature Reserve in South Africa, The Aspinall Foundation, The Sanger Institute and The Animal Health Trust. We are an educational member of the British and Irish Association of Zoos and Aquariums, an academic association member of the British Society of Animal Science and a link institution for the Universities Federation for Animal Welfare. Our staff and students present at top national and international animal conferences and produce leading research. We will provide you with the key skills, understanding, knowledge and practical experience to pursue your dream career. Our courses combine a sound academic base in science with a range of practical husbandry and management skills. The UK animal industry consists of a very large number of increasingly diverse enterprises, each demanding different knowledge and skills. Despite this diversity, success within the industry requires practical competence and commercial awareness. This course takes a holistic approach to animal management and is aimed at providing students with this broad knowledge. A wide range of species are available to enable students to gain sound practical animal husbandry skills, which are then complemented by an academic programme that covers topics such as nutrition, breeding, health and behaviour. These will be combined with a deeper understanding of business and trade as it relates to the animal sector. In the second and third years of the course, students have a choice of specialist modules allowing them to concentrate their knowledge in line with a specific group of animal species.
Set in beautiful landscaped gardens on a 220 hectare estate, Writtle offers a very unique student experience.Established in 1893 and a partner of the University of Essex, we are one of the oldest specialist institutions in the UK providing a range of degrees related to the Sciences and Arts.
