Hi my daughter is looking for 2023 both courses. The degrees are quite varying. Like for Lincoln for example. The animal behaviour is more based on farm/pet animals, where zoology more on zoos. But at Chester, animal behaviour there is more based on zoo and less on farm/pets. Shes limited because she did not take chem or physics, but took psychology , geography and biology. So places like Manchester are out. Reading uni is also good and they love the ecology and conservation as well as animal behaviour and zoology.
You have to read up on the modules and what each one entails. She scrapped lincoln animal behaviour because she does not want to be involved with farm/pet side of things and more zoo. If you want to work in a zoo, choose modules and unis that are more geared up for that. If you want more farm pet/rspca welfare kind of thing, then Lincoln animal behaviour is perfect.
