This course represents a unique opportunity for you to study a wider range of species than those covered in traditional animal science degrees. Your learning will focus on the biology of zoo species, namely non-domestic and non-UK wildlife, and how to apply this to all aspects of the management and conservation of captive populations.
Why choose this course?
We have strong links with UK zoos and wildlife parks.
You will have access to our modern Animal Unit on campus which houses around 150 animals of 40 different species.
Field trips include zoo visits and optional project trips to Jersey Zoo, Mauritius and Madagascar.
Teaching is informed by current research undertaken by academic staff in the School.
NTU is a member of the European Association of Zoos and Aquaria (EAZA) and the British and Irish Association of Zoos and Aquariums (BIAZA). We are also a teaching provider for Species 360s' animal record keeping system (Zoological Information Management System: ZIMS).
