This Sustainable Animal Nutrition and Feeding degree offers a unique programme for talented students in a high-ranking international research environment that equips them to come up with the solutions of tomorrow.
An International Double Degree
This course delivers a top-quality programme from two leading European universities – Aarhus University in Denmark and Wageningen University in the Netherlands. Students follow a specific, in-depth animal nutrition programme with a focus on feeding and the nutrition of food-producing animals, taking a multidisciplinary approach to productivity, animal health and welfare, and environmental aspects.
The course links to international feed companies and its setting is international and intercultural. It supports students in working with scientists and specialists at global research facilities. Students will gain international experience and will meet fellow students from all over the world.
On completion of the programme, students will have not only state-of-the-art knowledge of their specialism, but an international profile and network. Graduating students will receive a degree from both universities – a double degree.
Graduates of this programme are in very high demand and can take advantage of Aarhus University’s extensive professional network and strong industry partnerships. Students typically find careers in feed companies, consultancies, government departments, and educational institutions.
