The MSc Applied Zoo Biology is a Master’s degree designed to meet the needs of students wishing to pursue a more applied approach to this discipline. Taught by industry experts, who are research active and have strong national and international links, students will benefit from their extensive knowledge. Sparsholt holds one of the largest collections of animals in a UK college within our BIAZA member centre, combined with expert knowledge this is an exciting time to study with us.
Unique to University Centre Sparsholt is MSc Equine Behaviour, Performance and Training, a course designed to further develop the equestrian academic skills and knowledge of graduates, focusing on the field of equestrian behaviour, performance and training. This is a key growth area within the equestrian industry, with a recent swell of interest evident in the application of the key principles of behaviour science to the training of sport, leisure and working horses and riders.
University Centre Sparsholt is recognised worldwide for its expertise in providing education in fishery, aquaculture and marine studies. Our MSc Applied Aquaculture and Marine Studies is aimed at building on a strong science foundation and expand your knowledge in this field.
In addition to traditional lectures and seminars, units are delivered using the practical resources of our National Aquatic Training Centre, the only teaching facility of its kind in the UK, Salmonid Rearing and Trials Centre and College fishery, industry specific software and databases, conference attendance, guest speakers and off-site visits.
All courses can be studied either one year full-time or two years part-time.
