Why study Conservation at the University of Cumbria?
With numerous sites of Special Scientific Interest and habitats on our doorstep - ranging from the high Cumbrian fells to ancient woodlands - choosing to study conservation with us is an ideal choice if you wish to make the most of these priceless practical resources.
Based at our Ambleside campus, our conservation courses have been developed to meet the increasing demand for professionals with the knowledge to manage the conservation of species and ecosystems in the UK and overseas. Our optional, one-year sandwich placements also mean that whatever programme you choose, upon graduation you'll be equipped with the practical skills required for a career in conservation.
As a student on one of our conservation courses your studies will be enhanced by a team of staff who are heavily involved in conservation research both in the UK and abroad. This research is likely to provide you with the opportunity to become involved in scientific studies.
