Course outline

With growing rates of extinction of animal species, the demand for professionals skilled at managing and conserving wildlife populations has never been higher. If you have a passion for helping protect wildlife and wildlife habitat and want to turn it into a career, then we are here to help you on your way. You will learn everything you need to know about studying animal species and the ecosystems that support them.

We provide a thorough grounding in the core disciplines of animal conservation science, covering everything from identification, ecology, animal behaviour, conservation genetics, to wildlife management and behavioural ecology. Our own research and strong network of professional contacts keeps us well informed about the changing nature of conservation, and with an optional one-year placement, you will get the chance to put your knowledge into practice. Join our many graduates who have gone on to have great success in the conservation of endangered wildlife.

Many of our full-time programmes can be studied over a longer period on a part-time basis. Please contact the course enquiries team for further details.
