Animal Biology And Conservation (with a placement year)

Our Animal Biology and Conservation degree is designed to help you develop the skills and insights required for effective conservation in the coming decades. You will get to work from our Science Centre, with our own nature reserve next door. The course is ideally suited to people wishing to work in wildlife management or conservation and help sustain and protect the planet for generations to come. You will acquire the skills and knowledge of a scientific practitioner through experience-based activities, designed around a core programme of practical exercises and workshops, supported by lecture material. Fieldwork is incorporated throughout and you’ll take part in individual and small group tutorials to help personalise your development and enable valuable one-to-one feedback. You will also undertake a placement year. Graduates from our Animal Biology and Conservation degree work in a variety of roles, including conservation-orientated careers. Some work as environmental consultants in organisations such as Penny Anderson Associates and Apex Ecology, whilst others have gained employment with wildlife trusts and the RSBP. Others have used their transferable graduate skills and progressed into careers in teaching and/or management positions.  Others have pursued research careers – for example, studying the spread of mosquitoes.
