In the second year, wider experience comes as a result of a variety of field courses in the UK and Europe, while in year three there are opportunities to go overseas. In all these locations we teach vital identification skills and census techniques while at the same time studying local ecology and conservation issues.The degree is delivered by internationally-recognised, research active staff in the Centre for Ecology and Conservation on our Penryn Campus in Cornwall.
