MSc Applied Animal Behaviour and Training
After graduating as Student of the Year, Sandra used the skills she learnt studying from the MSc Applied Animal Behaviour and Training course to pursure a career within bovine welfare monitoring.
Q: Tell us about your current role?
A: The MSc in Applied Animal Behaviour and Training from Bishop Burton College gave me the confidence to accept work in bovine welfare monitoring at a DIY artificial insemination course for farmers.
Q: How have the skills you learnt at Bihop Burton College helped within your role?
A: As a result of the experience I gained from the course, I was able to search the literature, critically analyse relevant research, adapt it and fuse it with my veterinary knowledge to design a welfare monitoring programme. In addition, the course also equipped me with the ability to teach farmers about bovine welfare through the medium of PowerPoint.
