The Course

The University of Lincoln’s MSc Clinical Animal Behaviour programme is headed by a team of experts and is accredited by the Association for the Study of Animal Behaviour.

This Master’s degree follows an evidence-based approach, which aims to develop your theoretical and practical skills for the management of problem behaviour in companion animals. It is headed by a team of experts, including Europe’s first veterinary behaviour professor, European and Royal College of Veterinary Surgeon's specialist Daniel Mills.

Teaching is informed by research and practice and you have the opportunity to gain experience of actual cases through access to the School of Life Sciences’ veterinary behaviour clinic. The curriculum is closely aligned to the research conducted in the School’s Animal Behaviour Cognition and Welfare Group. You will be encouraged to develop research skills and may have the opportunity to work alongside academics on high-profile projects, many of which are funded by research councils, charities and commercial bodies.

How You Study

Formal teaching is supported by a range of personally directed study and peer-to-peer activities, which aim to improve practical and cognitive problem solving skills. Role play workshops are utilised in the delivery of this programme and peer-to-peer discussion is encouraged through the University's virtual learning environment. Students who enrol on the full-time programme will receive 12 hours of contact time per week for the duration of the taught element of this course. Part-time students should expect to receive 6 hours per week.

You will need to be prepared to make an extensive time commitment to pursue self-directed study. Full time students should allow for between 20-30 hours of self directed study per week and part time students should expect to undertake between 15 - 20 hours on a weekly basis.
