Ecology and Conservation - University of Brighton

Ecology is the study of the relationship between organisms and their physical and biological environments, and as such plays a crucial role in areas as diverse as conservation biology, natural resource management and community health. With a strong emphasis on applied learning, the course offers fieldwork opportunities in each year, with optional field trips to international locations such as South Africa and the Mediterranean, as well as local areas. You will develop your practical skills in our specialist laboratories purpose-built for the study of ecology, molecular biology and microbiology. You will benefit from research-informed teaching from internationally recognised staff and engage with specialist areas of ecology, especially in the final year when you can work alongside a member of staff to research an area of personal interest. The opportunity of a placement year gives you the chance to explore a potential specialism, develop your skills, and help secure valuable work experience. If you achieve the required standard in year 2, you can choose to progress directly to the third year of the Ecology and Conservation MSci and study towards a masters-level qualification.
