Animal Behaviour

The programme provides a strong background in a broad cross-section of research methods used by researchers studying human and animal behaviour, a strong training in statistical methods and multidisciplinary study environment. Students learn how to formulate and test relevant research questions, and critically evaluate the research carried out by others in the field. Students gain an insight into the varied means of performing animal behaviour research in a wide array of locations with wild and (semi-) captive animals; in the wild, laboratory, zoo or under human management. The apprenticeship enables students to develop their research skills further and write up the research in the form of a journal article for potential publication. Apprenticeships can also be undertaken under the supervision of researchers at various institutions.
