This new vocational course offers the unique opportunity to integrate an in-depth scientific knowledge of animal nutrition with the acquisition of business skills and a detailed operational understanding of the animal feed industries, developed through a series of case studies. This combination will equip you with the knowledge and skills for working in either research or industry.
The course has close links with industrial partners, with guest lectures, site-visits and an annual on-campus Nottingham Feed Conference, providing access to the latest developments in the animal feed industry. The programme is managed by the school’s Division of Animal Sciences, which has an international reputation for research in animal nutrition, development, reproduction and biotechnology. The division also manages a successful undergraduate degree in Animal Sciences. The school is ranked the no.1 research environment in the UK (for Agriculture, Veterinary and Food Science) in the 2014 REF (Research Excellence Framework). 97% of our work (in the Schools of Biosciences and Veterinary Medicine and Science ) was judged to be of international quality. Academic staff in the school have links with the University's School of Veterinary Medicine and Science, also based on the Sutton Bonington Campus. Students have access to the on-campus University Farm and Dairy Centre.
