I've just recently finished my top up year in environmental resource management and have come out with a third class honours (alongside 2 years of marine science at foundation level), I am disappointed in myself because I know I could of worked A LOT harder but I didn't enjoy the course at all. I've recently applied to do a masters in animal behaviour and welfare at 3 different universities but they are saying they 'normally want a 2.1' but if grades are lower they look at considering applications for people who have relevant work experience.

My question is (as I know I have probably wasted my time in applying for the masters for now) .. what experience can be accounted for? I have done work experience with animals before but only a couple of weeks at a time, which included working in a reptile shop and at a dog groomers, my level 3 diploma gave me a lot of experience in animal husbandry and handling animals as well as a variety of practical elements that I did in my two years at college. I've also been doing voluntary dog walking so I've been around dogs for the last 6 months. I'm just wondering what constitutes towards 'experience' to a university as I could look at applying in a few years for this degree once I have whatever they deem 'relevant experience'. I also have previously done animal behaviour and animal healths unit on the level 3 course too.

Thank you in advance!
