The aim of this course is to give you a sound knowledge of animal science and its applications. You'll learn practical and laboratory skills and develop an understanding of the environmental, ethical and economic contexts in which the sector operates.
You'll discover how animal science helps improve the productivity and sustainability of livestock production systems and control disease epidemics. And you'll learn how it can be used to raise standards of animal welfare, and to enhance wildlife biodiversity.
The top-up degree course is offered at our Barony campus — you enter with a related HND or equivalent and study years 3 and 4 of our degree programme, graduating with an Honours degree.
Entry into Year 3 of our Applied Animal Science degree is also possible at other SRUC campuses - see Applied Animal Science for details.
