Lecture content is very, very easy to understand. Lauren included a variety of studies in her lecture material, which I found really helpful for explaining concepts or writing our assignments. The only major downside I had was how VAGUE the assignment instructions were (I got 85 & 84 for the 2 assignments, only after asking a plethora of questions because I was so CONFUSED). They don't set up good assignment instructions because I assume they're flexible, but you can easily miss some important marks. Also tutorials are a bit boring - it's basically just us answering some relatively easy questions with no real teamwork. Wish it was set up a bit better (harder questions?). I'd probably have preferred Animal Behaviour instead if AAB wasn't a core subject in 2020.

Very interesting topics which are well taught. The assignments are marked a bit harshly in aspects such as referencing. The excursion classes to the zoo were really good and helpful for learning the subject. I would recommend this subject but having a background in psychology would be helpful.

Applied Animal Behaviour will be a walk in the park for anyone who has done any psychology or behavioural studies before. The concepts are quite easy to understand, and the assignments are clearly set out and fairly marked. The exam structure is short answer and multiple choice and I have not encountered anyone who found it particularly difficult - if you have any interest in pursuing animal welfare, this is a great place to start.
