MSc Applied Animal Behaviour and Training
Our new MSc Applied Animal Behaviour and Training course launches at Riseholme in September... Find out how Sandra, a student at our partner College - Bishop Burton, goton from graduating as Student of the Year to pursuing a career within bovine welfare monitoring.
Q: Tell us about your current role?
A: The MSc in Applied Animal Behaviour and Training from Bishop Burton College gave me the confidence to accept work in bovine welfare monitoring at a DIY artificial insemination course for farmers.
Q: How have the skills you learnt at Bihop Burton College helped within your role?
A: As a result of the experience I gained from the course, I was able to search the literature, critically analyse relevant research, adapt it and fuse it with my veterinary knowledge to design a welfare monitoring programme. In addition, the course also equipped me with the ability to teach farmers about bovine welfare through the medium of PowerPoint.
