Course Summary

Delivered at Wiltshire College and University Centre's Lackham campus, this course is for anyone wishing to specialise in ecology, biodiversity or conservation.Although you can graduate after 2 years with the FdSc in Environmental Science and Sustainability, an additional third year on a top-up course to achieve a full BSc degree could be more attractive to employers in the field.Year one lays the foundation for later study. The number of students at any one year will be relatively small so all students will have maximum support for each module from a personal tutor.You will learn how to research current topics, and although there is no work experience as part of the course, there is a Work Related Project in year 2 which may require you to liaise with a local company or organisation and apply your knowledge to a live, relevant topic or issue.Overall, the course will get you workplace ready, with the theoretical and practical knowledge which would benefit any employer in the fields of ecology, biodiversity and conservation.
