Advance and expand the knowledge you gained from your animal related degree with this postgraduate programme. Utilising our outstanding facilities, industry links and staff expertise to support students in actively engaging in research related to animal behaviour and welfare, the programme will provide you with the required knowledge and skills to develop practical solutions for existing and emerging problems in animal behaviour and animal welfare science.
The MRes in Animal Behaviour and Welfare includes 60 credits of taught modules, including advances in animal behaviour, contemporary issues in animal welfare and research methods. These modules tend to be taught in two day blocks. This means that the teaching is condensed to allow the Masters study to occur round other commitments in our students' lives.
These modules will give you the opportunity to expand your knowledge of animal behaviour and welfare science, advance your skills in critically evaluating current research, and develop your abilities in research design and statistical analysis. These skills, along with one to one support, will allow you to understand and apply current scientific thinking, develop new ideas and evaluate current processes and practices.
This will allow you to effectively design and carry out your research dissertation project. This will be original research that will make a valuable contribution to the field of animal behaviour or animal welfare. The dissertation is flexible and can be tailored to specific interests and career aspirations.
The knowledge and skills that you gain from the programme will enhance your career prospects and can be applied in future scientific research and in practical areas such as conservation, research centres and zoos.
The programme can be completed full time in one year; part time routes are available and should be planned with your Programme Manager.
