Ecology and Wildlife Conservation BSc (Hons)

There's a growing demand for professionals with skills in the areas of wildlife protection, biodiversity conservation, and ecosystem management. This course has been specifically designed to address that need, providing you with a solid scientific grounding in field study of species, ecological interactions, wildlife conservation, habitats, and landscape processes.

As well as teaching you the ecological processes, our expert academics, professional practitioners and guest speakers will guide you through the wider social and legal context in which ecological conservation operates. There is a strong emphasis on practical skills, with many opportunities for fieldwork overseas or in a fantastic variety of local habitats including forests, meadows, heaths and maritime environments, providing you with multiple opportunities to consolidate your learning through practical application and engage in cutting-edge field research.

You’ll have the option to select subjects that match your personal passions and ambitions, and undertake either two five-week or one 30-week work placement in year three to gain valuable employment skills, contacts and real world experience with a wide range of local and international opportunities.
