Animal behaviour university courses?

    • Thread Starter

    Hi I was wondering if anybody could tell me their experience of studying an animal behaviour course? I would like to know which university you studied at and what the content was like? I am really struggling in picking a university. I have been looking at Anglia Ruskin and Chester. If anybody has any experiences I would be really grateful.

    Visiting is always a good idea. You may also want to compare courses by looking at structure and content.

    I want to do some sort of animal related course, but I'm also considering Zoology. My friend studies at Chester (doing animal behaviour and welfare) and says it's amazing. I personally also like the look of Lincoln

    I'm doing my 2nd year of Animal Behaviour in Liverpool John Moores. In the first year we only one module that only had some animal behaviour content. There is a lot more content now. The program is good if you are unsure what career you want in the future as the content includes wild and domesticated animals.

    I'm doing bioveterinary at Lincoln but I originally applied to animal behaviour (first year for both courses is the same ) and I have friends doing behaviour at Chester and behaviour & welfare at Chester/Reaseheath if you have any questions
    Lincoln is one of the best for research in behaviour and I do really recommend it, BUT the course is way more academic/science based than most, so if you're looking for a course that has more husbandry and management etc, ones based at colleges are usually best
