Summary

NB This Top-Up programme is only available to internal progressors from the Foundation degree in Animal Science and Welfare at Easton College.

The one-year Top-Up programme builds on current Foundation Degree. Students will undertake a major project/dissertation of choice, alongside optional modules such as animal nutrition, sustainability, and canine and feline behaviour. The course has been designed to provide ample opportunity to refine skills and knowledge, ready for employment or further post-graduate study, such as a Master's or PhD programme.

Modules delivered cover areas such as;
Dissertation (core module)
Current Issues in Animal Science and Welfare (core module)
Conversation Biology (optional module)
Comparative Animal Nutrition (optional module)
The Global Business Environment (optional module)
Advanced Canine & Feline Behaviour & Training (optional module)

The programme is delivered through a mixture of workshops, lectures, seminars, practical sessions, tutorials and self-directed study. Students are expected to use these as learning platforms, to build upon the content of lectures and seminars with group and peer discussion.

During this one-year course students will study 120 Credits. These credits are split into 20 and 40 credit modules. Students will study for two days a week and will be expected to conduct further research to aid in the completion of their modules.
