Course outline

With growing rates of extinction and a big loss of biodiversity, the demand for professional conservationists has never been higher. If you have a passion for helping protect wildlife and want to turn it into a career, then we're here to help you on your way. You'll learn everything you need to know about studying habitats and genetics, with the opportunity to conduct fieldwork modules in an international setting during the course.

We provide a thorough grounding in the core disciplines of conservation biology, covering everything from animal preservation to larger scale landscape issues. Our strong network of professional contacts keeps us well informed about the changing nature of conservation, as well as providing a network for employment opportunities. Join our many graduates who have gone on to have great success in helping animals to regain their homes.

Our course offers a four-year 'sandwich-route mode' of study, which will allow you the opportunity to undertake a one year placement between your second and third year. You'll get the real world experience you need to put your studies into focus, as well as understand how your degree can help you in gaining a career.
