**Develop your specialist scientific knowledge with this Bioveterinary degree. Prepare for a veterinary medicine degree or an exciting career within animal science.**

The foundation year entry provides an alternative route into degree-level study. It’s ideal for those who need to gain subject-specific knowledge and skills in order to progress with the full BSc qualification.

This degree is for you, if you want to pursue a range of scientific areas that focus on the processes underpinning disease. You’ll develop your expertise in disease diagnosis, microbiology, physical therapies and rehabilitation.

Study bioveterinary science in professional-standard laboratories and work with a range of animals in our 70-species Animal Collection, commercial farm and large equine centre to develop your experience working with animals.

Apply theory to practice as you get hands on in our dissection and microbiology laboratories, learning more about a range of species. Investigate notifiable and zoonotic diseases, study farm animals, equine and companion species.

You’ll have the opportunity to complete biochemistry and genetics modules, as well as livestock production with practical sessions on our campus farm. You could experience rehabilitation first-hand in our commercial equine and canine therapy centres with our animal therapy modules, and evaluate cutting-edge hydrotherapy research.

Modules

The foundation year includes lectures in animal, study skills, science and or management, depending upon an individual’s previous academic background. Within the year, you will be supported to enhance your skills and knowledge to ensure you are fully prepared to succeed in year 1. Students will study a range of core modules, while optional subjects enable you to tailor your degree to your own interests. Year 1 modules include Anatomy and Physiology, Biochemistry, Animal Genetics and Animal Health and Disease.

Post-six month graduation stats:

This is from the Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education Survey, based on responses from graduates who studied the same subject area here.

It offers a snapshot of what grads went on to do six months later, what they were earning on average, and whether they felt their degree helped them obtain a 'graduate role'. We calculate a mean rating to indicate if this is high, medium or low compared to other universities.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
