Animal Behaviour and Welfare course receives accreditation

Posted 12 January

We are delighted that we have received full accreditation from ASAB and look forward to continue working with our CCABs who teach on the course.”

The BSc (Hons) Animal Behaviour and Welfare (Clinical) course at Harper Adams University is now an Association for the Study of Animal Behaviour (ASAB) Accreditation Committee validated course.

This means the course has been formally validated by the ASAB Accreditation Committee as delivering the academic elements necessary for an individual to achieve ASAB certification as a clinical animal behaviourist.

This makes Harper Adams the only university in the country to have full ASAB accreditation at undergraduate level.

A Certified Clinical Animal Behaviourist (CCAB) works with pet owners to address concerns about the behavioural problems of their animals. This can include problems such as aggression in dogs and cats, separation related problems and fears and phobias.

Individuals who graduate from the BSc Animal Behaviour and Welfare (Clinical) course with at least a 2:1 degree classification will be recognised by ASAB as having fulfilled the academic requirements of ASAB certification.

Course Manager Stephen Baugh said: “We are delighted that we have received full accreditation from ASAB and look forward to continue working with our CCABs who teach on the course.”
