BSc (Hons) Conservation Biology

If you’ve always been concerned and want to learn more about the threats to our environment, then we are here to give you the knowledge and skills you need to succeed.

You will start by building a knowledge of the world’s biodiversity (including animal and plant identification skills), ecology and the principles and practice of conservation lectures and field sessions. You will then learn about professional-standard survey and research techniques, which are tested in a fieldwork module currently delivered in either West Africa or India. Alongside this, you are also¬†introduced to studies of landscape ecology, GIS and conservation policy, with a range of optional modules available.

It’s now 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.

This course is also available with an integrated foundation year and also with a sandwich placement.
