I really enjoyed this subject! Each week (or two weeks) was a different topic (e.g. nutrition, toxins, infectious disease, one health, genetics, etc.) but they were all really interesting and not too overloaded with content. While there is still a lot of information that you need to learn, I found that a lot of it was fairly easy to understand. The case studies were all really enjoyable, and complemented the lectures perfectly, and gave great insight into real-world issues. The assessments were 4 quizzes (all multiple choice) worth 5% each and based on the lectures and case studies from the few weeks beforehand, which were easy enough to score well in generally, although there was often a couple of questions that were somewhat obscure. There was also the written report (1000 words), where you could choose from 6 topics. They were not necessarily directly related to the content (e.g. the nutrition essay involved discussing nutritional approaches to dealing with feline urolithiasis), but still linked to general concepts that they had discussed. However, some students said that some topics were quite broad and it was difficult to get an idea of what they were actually asking for. The exam was reasonable too, however being all short answer questions up to about 10 marks each, it was quite tight for time. Overall, a really great subject, especially being the first year that it has been run!
