This course has been designed with our partners at Cirencester College, utilizing the expertise and resources of both institutions including the use of the Cirencester College animal centre with more than 80 species. The course gives students a comprehensive understanding of the key concepts and principles in British habitat conservation and wildlife management. It combines academic theory with work-based experience and ensures students are fully trained in industry standard techniques of research and fieldwork. Students complete a 30 day period of compulsory work experience during the summer holiday between the first and second year, to experience wildlife and environmental management activities within the sector. Upon successful completion of the foundation degree, students have the opportunity to progress onto an appropriate BSc Honours Top Up course at the RAU or other universities.
