The Bioveterinary Science (Hons) programme from University of Liverpool contains bespoke modules in Bioveterinary Science, in topics such as animal husbandry and welfare, veterinary form and function, veterinary diseases, epidemiology, pathology and public health. Students also choose modules available in the School of Life Sciences, which include animal biodiversity, animal behaviour, zoology practical skills, comparative animal physiology and conservation biology.

There are several options available in Years Two and Three allowing the student to tailor their degree to fit with their strengths, interests and career aspirations. In the final year, all students carry out an extended research project of their choice with an active research group. Various modes of teaching are used throughout the programme including lectures, practical classes, problem-based learning and guided study supported by our Virtual Learning Environment.

Career prospects

As a Life Sciences graduate from the University of Liverpool, you will have an excellent set of career options ahead of you. For those committed to a career as a professional scientist, higher degrees (MBiolSci, MSc, MRes, MPhil or PhD) at the University of Liverpool or elsewhere provide a flexible set of options for further study.

In the public sector, Life Sciences graduates are in demand in research institutes, government departments, the National Health Service, forensic science and the Environment Agency. Commercial sectors that actively recruit graduates from the Life Sciences include the pharmaceutical, food, biotechnology, water and agriculture industries.

There is also an increasing demand for life scientists to contribute to the public understanding of science as journalists and information/liaison officers, in view of the ethical and environmental issues that arise, for example, by developments in molecular biology and biotechnology.

A number of routes are available for graduates to enter the teaching profession one of which is taking a postgraduate qualification (PGCE). There are significant financial inducements provided to meet the current demand for science teachers. In addition to all of the opportunities for graduates in general, including careers outside of biology (such as management, accountancy and human resources), where the skills you have obtained in our degree programmes will be of considerable benefit. Our degree programmes are also popular routes to postgraduate Medicine, Dentistry or Veterinary Science.
