Cyflogadwyedd

Your BSc in Agriculture with Animal Science opens up a range of exciting opportunities for employment and further training. You will be a strong candidate for work as an agricultural consultant or farm manager, and because of your specialism in animal science, you will also succeed in animal-related management, animal nutrition, productivity, and welfare.

Throughout your training you will develop a wealth of skills that can be easily transferred into almost any graduate or professional employment situation. You will have first-rate technical and biological knowledge, combined with the ability to manage a farm or agricultural business efficiently, productively and safely. You will be confident in handling data and will be a strong communicator in both written and oral forms. You will also have valuable skills in the management of people, animals and resources, and will possess the latest expertise in agricultural best practice.

Addysg a Dysgu

This course includes a one-year industrial placement in a related agricultural business, enabling you to gain hands-on experience of agricultural and animal management. This may be tailored to meet your particular requirements and cover farm management, the agricultural support sector or research and development.

This course will be delivered through a programme of lectures, seminars, workshops and field visits. You will have plenty of opportunities to apply your academic learning in practical activities and workshops. You will also look at the connection between research and analysis exercises and their real-world outputs in the form of improved technology and improved animal welfare.

Among many skills, you will learn to: review and select relevant information from a wealth of scientific and technical literature; understand and explain the implications of developments in subjects such as nutrition and production systems; implement improvements to agricultural business models; and plan projects and manage them in simulations and practical exercises.

You will be assessed through essays, practical exercises, oral presentations and exams. You will also be required to complete additional assignments and work with others on particular tasks. In all these areas you will need to demonstrate scientific rigour and apply a systematic approach to the problems with which you are presented.

The university's vibrant culture of learning will support you in your agricultural training and encourage you to take advantage of the many opportunities within the department and the university to develop your theoretical and practical expertise so that, upon graduation, you are perfectly positioned for the next stage of your career.

You will be assigned a personal tutor throughout your degree course, who will help you with any problems or queries, whether these are academic-related or personal issues. You should feel free to contact them at any time for help and advice.

You will also have the opportunity to complete a Personal Development Plan (PDP) at Aberystwyth. This is a structured process of self-appraisal, reflection, and planning, which will enable you to chart your personal, academic and professional development throughout your time at university. By recording your academic performance, and highlighting the skills you already have and those you will need for future employability, the PDP portfolio will equip you with the necessary tools to plan effectively, develop successful approaches to study, and consider your future career options and aspirations.

Barn ein Myfyrwyr

What do I love about Agriculture at Aberystwyth University? The people - students from a wide range of backgrounds, all getting together, sharing experiences and learning together. Lecturers with a passion for their subject, who are down to earth and approachable. The place - the green hills, quiet woods, impressive views, and the sea. The course - learning about a topic which is foundational to society; stretching my mind with new knowledge, and shivering out in freezing farmyards (yes, even that has a kind of pleasure to it!). That's what I love about agriculture here. Benjamin David Latham

I love the practical aspect of the Animal Science course as well as the interesting lectures. Being able to choose a pathway means we are able to specialize and study what we are most interested in. Being based in Aberystwyth means there is plenty of scope for lambing and farm work alongside my studies. Lewis Wescott
