Course summary

There is a growing demand for professionals with skills in the areas of wildlife protection, biodiversity conservation, and ecosystem management. As such this course provides a solid scientific grounding in field study of species, ecological interactions, wildlife conservation, habitats, and landscape processes.As well as examining the ecological processes themselves, the course looks at the wider social and legal context in which ecological conservation operates. There’s a strong emphasis on fieldwork in the UK and overseas, providing you with multiple opportunities to consolidate your learning through practical application and engage in cutting-edge field research. Plus you’ll have the option to select subjects that match your personal passions and ambitions, and undertake a work placement to broaden your knowledge, experience and career potential.The opportunity to participate in our annual international field trip is a highlight of this course. In 2017, students visited Costa Rica, where they were involved in conservation projects including endangered species such as sea turtles, coral reefs, cloud forests and volcanoes.Students have attended placements with the likes of Wildlife Trusts, The National Trust, The Royal Society of the Protection of Birds and Environmental consultancy firms. Graduates have gone on to work in industries from ecology, conservation, environmental management and education. 85% of our students are working or studying 6 months after graduating (Destination of Leavers of Higher Education, 2018).
