Why take this course?

The world’s aquatic ecosystems and environment are increasingly under threat. Pollution, overfishing, global climate change and many other impacts have highlighted the importance for us to understand their function at all levels, from the molecular to the global.

This is what our course sets out to do and thanks to our close proximity to many types of temperate marine habitats and internationally protected conservation areas, we offer the perfect location for investigation.

What will I experience?

On this course you can:

Research at our internationally-renowned Institute of Marine Sciences or carry out microbiological work at the University’s Field Centre for Environmental Technology at Petersfield Sewage Works
Rear coldwater species for restocking programmes or trial fish food at Sparsholt College’s National Aquatics Training Centre
Study abroad through Erasmus or various other conservation and research schemes

What opportunities might it lead to?

You’ll be taught by leading international researchers and the course has been designed with strong input from outside agencies including environmental consultancies, a range of government bodies and industry. This ensures your training links directly to UK and international employment opportunities.

Here are some routes our graduates have pursued:

Consultancy work
Government-based research
Conservation
Teaching
Further study

Module Details

You will cover a variety of topics in advanced laboratory and field skills, and choose from units that cover marine ecology, aquaculture, ecotoxicology and pollution, and scientific journalism. A large amount of your time will also be spent on the research project that will enable you to apply the skills and knowledge you have gained.

Core units are:

• Research Toolkit: This covers a range of key professional skills for research methods (communication skills, ethics and report writing), advanced field skills (boat sampling, taxonomy, and marine and freshwater sampling methods), advanced laboratory skills (genomics, monitoring and pollution monitoring methods) and remote sensing technology (such as GIS).

• Research Project: Your final project allows you to select from a range of marine and freshwater projects provided by staff within the School, government research laboratories, NGOs and private research companies. During the project you will write literature reviews and develop skills in data analysis and presentation.

Then choose any three optional units from:

• Ecotoxicology and Pollution: This provides an introduction to environmental toxicology using model and non-model organisms.

• Aquaculture: This unit focuses on the principles of aquaculture production, global production and diversity of aquaculture species. It is taught by academic staff and staff from the National Aquatics Training Centre at Sparsholt College. Areas covered include larval culture, diseases and pathology, feeding and growth, reproductive manipulation, and business and management.

• Marine Policy, Planning and Conservation: Planning and Conservation: This unit explores contemporary debates on coastal and marine management with a specific focus on marine policy, planning and conservation.

• Science and the Media: Science communication is increasingly becoming an important part of science. This unit firstly addresses the skills required by scientists to effectively communicate with the media and general public and secondly, provides an understanding of the skills needed for a career in science journalism.

• Subtidal Marine Ecology: Selected topics of current interest in marine ecology, incorporating both theory and applied aspects, culminating in a week-long practical field course in the Mediterranean Sea. The unit carries an additional cost for the field trip, and requires a minimum level of training and experience in SCUBA diving to participate.

Programme Assessment

Hands-on laboratory-based work teamed with field trips means that practical learning underpins the theory learned in lectures, seminars, tutorials and workshops. You’ll also find that some aspects of your course may be taught online using our virtual learning environment.

You will be assessed using a range of methods from exams to coursework and presentations, with great opportunities to present your final-year projects to industry and researchers from other departments and organisations.

Student Destinations

Once you have completed this course, you will be particularly well placed to enter a wide range of interesting and rewarding careers in the UK and abroad. We will ensure you have all the relevant knowledge and skills that employers require, giving you the opportunity to either pursue a scientific career, enter the teaching profession, or further study should you want to continue your research.

Aquaculture accounts for more than half of the fish supply for human consumption whilst angling is the biggest single leisure industry in the UK with a value in excess of £4 billion annually. With the focus on a sustainable secure food supply for the future and a population with more leisure time available, enhanced knowledge and training is required by the industry in these two areas. Sport fisheries offer considerable subject overlap with aquaculture in terms of technical application, environmental impact, containment and predation, legislation and sustainability.

The Salmonid Rearing and Trial Centre (SRTC) and the National Aquatics Training Centre (NATC) provide students with immediate access to the husbandry and rearing of many global aquaculture species together with extensive research facilities. In addition, the College’s close links with the UK aquaculture industry offer applied research opportunities. The onsite experiences for the sports fishery element of the MSc are supported by the College fishery and the stock of sports fish available in the NATC as well as numerous field site visits to local aquaculture and sports fishery venues. The College’s close proximity to many important and exclusive sports fisheries in Southern England will also provide students with unique learning experiences in the sustainable management of both aquaculture and sports fisheries. The teaching team at Sparsholt have a strong background in aquaculture and sports fisheries with specialisms in global aquaculture, fishery management and environmental biology.

Units Covered
– Applied Aquaculture

Our programme consists of 6 taught courses and a year of project planning and dissertation that link together to create an MSc Animal Osteopathy (Canine & Equine). Three courses taken alone results in a PG Certificate and six courses, a PG Diploma.

Animal osteopathy is a relatively new and exciting field of osteopathic medicine and the European School of Osteopathy is the first UK Osteopathic Education Institution to offer validated programmes of study. Our programmes are open to qualified osteopaths as postgraduate awards.

Because of the nature of the work, life as an animal osteopath (AO) is both varied and highly rewarding. Some AO's work freelance, moving yard to yard, whilst others work side by side with paraprofessionals and vets.

If you want to work with animals and have an interest in anatomy, biomechanics and the use of manual therapy to help restore and support function in domestic pets and horses, animal osteopathy could be the career path for you.

Integrating the knowledge of osteopathy with veterinary science, behavioural science and methods used in rehabilitation, animal osteopaths add real value to any veterinary team and a gentle non-invasive solution to many functional conditions.

Canine pathways are taught at the ESO, Boxley, Maidstone, Kent. Equine pathways are taught at a mixture of locations, to include: the ESO, Hadlow College, Hadlow and Knightsplace Farm Equestrian Centre, Rochester.

The aims of the programme are:

- To educate osteopaths in the field of animal osteopathy (namely canine and equine osteopathy)

- To produce animal osteopathic practitioners who are independent, safe and highly skilled

- To graduate our students with a professional level of competencies that support critical thinking and reflective practice

- To produce graduates who are capable of contributing to the field of animal osteopathy in an evidence-based fashion.

Animal Management

The care and welfare of both domestic and exotic animals has never been more important. By taking a course in Animal Management you could take part in the growth of this industry and be responsible for caring for a variety of species. Students benefit from highly practical training using purpose-built animal management facilities which house a range of aquatics, reptiles, invertebrates and small mammals.

What you'll study

- Canine Studies - 20 credits
- Advanced Canine Studies - 20 credits
- Canine Training and Rehabilitation - 20 credits
- Equine Studies- 20 credits
- Advanced Equine Studies - 20 credits
- Equine Training and Rehabilitation - 20 credits
- Project Planning and Dissertation – final year (60 credits)

Assessment

Assessment is through written assignments, portfolio (reflective writing)and practical assessment.

Specialist equipment/facilities

Practical sessions on the equine programmes are taught at Hadlow College, Hadlow or Knightsplace Farm equestrian Centre, Rochester, Kent. Here the appropriate facilities, live models and safety practices, can be implemented.

Career options

Depending upon the animal osteopathic pathway you choose, various doors can be opened.

Those who complete the PG Certificate in Canine Osteopathy are likely to go into small animal practice within a veterinary surgery, whilst those who study equine osteopathy are more likely to work freelance alongside other paraprofessionals (vets, trainers, farriers etc.).

Some animal osteopaths also go on to teach on animal osteopathic programmes or run open lectures for the general public or veterinary professionals. So whether you're the hands on, team playing type, or someone who prefers a more academic approach, animal osteopathy can expand your horizons.
