What career can you have?

Graduates from the Postgraduate Certificate in Sustainable Livestock Production will be well suited to careers in livestock production, management and science. This may be within both international and national corporations, non-governmental organisations and policy bodies, and research and higher education institutions.

If you're already in a related career you can use the PGCert to increase your skills, change direction, or build directly on your existing qualifications. The PGCert can also be used as the basis for a full master's qualification.

Assessments in each module will be designed to develop and assess the analytical and communication skills required for these careers. If you are currently working in the field, assessments are also designed to be relevant to your current employment, and you will be encouraged to discuss particular projects with your employer to ensure research questions of relevance to your particular situation are addressed.
