|Description:||The BSc (Hons) Bioveterinary Science degree at Lincoln gives students the opportunity to learn the science that underlies animal health and disease. The degree combines key elements of animal science with academically rigorous laboratory analysis. Students are introduced to the processes surrounding animal health including life histories of pathogens and parasites, infection and immunity, prevention measures, diagnosis, and treatments. Students have the opportunity to study these issues in a range of animal species, including exotic and wild animals, as well as in humans. There is also an overseas field trip available in your final year as part of the optional "Overseas Field Course" module.
This course aims to prepare graduates for a range of careers in animal-related professions. These include research and development, technical support and sales of animal pharmaceuticals, vaccine, and nutrition products, as well as in animal health, laboratory diagnostics, toxicology, forensics, wildlife parks, and zoos. Many continue their study at MSc and PhD level, and some go on to study veterinary medicine.
