Conservation Biology and Ecology

You’ll gain knowledge and skills that are essential for working conservationists and ecologists, including wildlife identification and data handling. In the first year, we take full advantage of Cornwall’s rich landscapes with many one-day field trips around the South West Peninsula. In the second year, wider experience comes as a result of a variety of field courses in the UK and Europe, while in year three there are opportunities to go overseas. In all these locations we teach vital identification skills and census techniques while at the same time studying local ecology and conservation issues. The degree is delivered by internationally-recognised, research active staff in the Centre for Ecology and Conservation on our Penryn Campus in Cornwall. The Centre hosts a large and thriving group of scientists who work at the cutting edge of research on conservation and ecology and run field research projects across the globe, from Cyprus to Australia. The programme is available as a four-year degree with the third year spent studying at a partner university abroad.
