About

The Applied Animal Science with Therapy (with Foundation Year) (Hons) course from Hartpury University will help you develop your therapeutic knowledge and launch your career making a difference to the lives of animals.

Overview

The Applied Animal Science with Therapy (with Foundation Year) (Hons) course from Hartpury University 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 onto the full BSc qualification.

This degree will equip you with a range of scientific animal therapy skills. You’ll work with both the animal and human to make sure animals are healthy and performing at their best.

You’ll study animal anatomy and physiology – in particular the musculoskeletal system – genetics, health, disease and nutrition. Whilst studying the human element of this course, you’ll learn about scientific communication and working in a therapy setting.

Draw on the industry experiences of your lecturers, a team of veterinary professionals, hydrotherapists and nutritionists, as you learn the theory and apply it in practice.

Your work placement will enable you to develop industry-standard skills whilst gaining real-life experience. You could work in our canine and equine therapy centres on site, or undertake a placement in industry.

This degree doesn’t qualify you to become an animal therapist or physiotherapist, but it does allow you to focus on your therapy of choice and make an informed decision on your next step or career goal.
