Entry will be granted to applicants who demonstrate the academic ability and potential to benefit from the programme, students will be expected to have four GCSEs at C and above and 16 UCAS points.
Students entering study at level four, will require a level three qualification with a pass grade or above and preferably have undertaken some work experience with animals.
For those students wishing to enrol directly at level six for the 'top up' option, entry requirements are a foundation degree in animal science or a HND in animal studies having achieved suitable modules for application for accreditation of prior certification.
Mature students will be considered on an individual basis as industrially relevant qualifications and experience can be taken into consideration.
Applicants that have not achieved a HND or foundation degree on application will be required to undertake study at Level four and five before progressing onto the BSc level six modules.
