Course outline

If you've always been concerned and want to study more about the threats to our environment, then we are here to give you the knowledge and skills you need to succeed. It's more important than ever to have professionals who can manage the conservation of species and ecosystems, so we want to help you become the best you can in this vital field.

You'll love learning at our National School of Forestry, which offers access to over 100 hectares of Cumbrian countryside, encompassing a wide range of diverse habitats. In addition, your second year will see you travel to West Africa or India to explore even more environments. We give you real-world assignments that allow you to learn actively on location, preparing your skills to impress future employers. With highly dedicated tutors who are fully involved in what they teach, we can provide you with everything you need to study conservation biology, opening up your career options.

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.
