Conservation Biology involves the study of biodiversity, ecology and human society in order to protect and manage species, habitats and ecosystems. The course aims to provide you with a wide skillset, and cover both local and global conservation issues whilst encouraging both a theoretical and applied approach to the subject. Foundation Year courses have been designed for students who do not have the necessary academic qualifications needed to enter directly into the first year of a degree but who have the ability and commitment to do so. The Foundation Year may also be of interest to mature students who have been out of formal education for an extended period of time or who wish to change their academic field of study. Teaching takes place at the Parkgate Road Campus.
