New course: BSc Human-Animal Interaction
Explore the science behind the human-animal bond. Work with different animals. Graduate ready to make a difference in animal assisted therapy, psychology or education.
The centre features a vivarium with a wide range of reptiles, amphibians and invertebrates. These include new poison dart frogs, iguanas, bearded dragons and a range of snakes, including corn snakes that we have hatched ourselves. There’s also a fully stocked aquatics room with a diverse assortment of tropical and coldwater fish, including piranha! These species provide opportunities for our students to carry out behavioural observations and gain a deeper insight into animal husbandry and management, including nutrition and enrichment to improve welfare, and are the focus of research and dissertation projects.
