    Programme Description


    Why do people want ever-smaller Chihuahuas? Or pug-nosed cats? How do you weigh the interests of people against those of a laboratory animal? What is people´s image of a particular animal, and can this be influenced by the right information? And what are the latest developments in animal healthcare? Developments are constantly taking place. Animal managers follow them all, and always know what´s going on.

    Our programme in Animal Management is the ideal option for management training in animal welfare and in the relationship between man and beast. Because it focuses mainly on non-farmed animals, it is unique in Europe. Such animals are not part of the food-chain, but are kept for sport or recreation, in zoos or on urban farms, or otherwise as pets. They also include laboratory animals, animals in the wild, and animals that are important to human healthcare.

    The key questions with such animals concern their value to humans, and the ways in which we treat them. This means that ethics, wellbeing and behaviour are all important to this internationally focused course. And as well as examining biology and economics, you´ll also explore nutrition, nature management, legislation and regulations, leadership, marketing and communication.

    Typically, graduates become managers in the field of their choice. On the principle that all good managers are quick to seize an opportunity, we ensure that you get opportunities to gain practical experience even as you study. By planning your placements carefully, you´ll create new opportunities and networks of your own, increasing your chances of getting that dream job at a zoo, in the animal-feeds industry, a research institute, nature reserve, stables or animal-testing laboratory - not to mention in animal protection, education, healthcare or government.

    The Bachelor of Animal Management offers a final phase and a certificate programme in English.

    Specialisation Wildlife Management (2 years Final Phase Bachelor)
    (this programme is also offered as a 1-year certificate programme, please check our website for more information)

    The programme is competency based: each theoretical subject supports workgroup situations in which students tackle practical problems and explore workable solutions. This means that you will be active from day one, learning to work independently as you collaborate with others.
