NEW COURSE FOR ANIMAL SCIENTISTS

 

 

A new course for people interested in a career as a scientist working with animals is to be launched at the University of Lincoln.

 

The BSc (Hons) Bioveterinary Science is a new undergraduate course which is due to start in September 2007.

 

The course is ideal for those interested in a career in science related to animals. It has been designed to meet the needs of students by providing them with hands on experience and knowledge in the field of veterinary medicine.

 

The course concentrates on science with veterinary specialisation. Students can expect to study animal physiology, immunology, microbiology and clinical nutrition.

 

It will be based at the university’s Riseholme campus which boasts a range of facilities including an animal behaviour clinic, farm, laboratories, wildlife habitats and animal care facilities. The course will focus on a wide range of animals including equine and companion animals.

 

Frank Ruedisueli, programme leader for Bioveterinary Science, said: "We are very excited about this new course. We are hoping it will appeal to students who have not yet considered the University of Lincoln and who will find that Bioveterinary Science fits their scientific curiosity as well as specific career prospects."
