Student ProfileDiscover why our Norwegian student, Serine Hansen, loves studying BSc (Hons) Animal Science at Writtle:
"I have always wanted to work with animals, but I was not sure of exactly what I wanted to do. The Animal Science programme at Writtle was a perfect start, it gave me a wide knowledge of the animal industry and opened my mind for so much more inside the animal industry. I chose Writtle because of the location, beautiful campus and the amount of practical work we get to do. I have been very happy with my teachers. They are so supportive and helpful, which were a great help throughout my studies."
