International Wildlife Biology

Wildlife biology is the study of organisms, their behaviour, ecology, environment and management. This unique course helps you learn, understand and interpret the biological processes and interactions that determine the diversity and distribution of species, their responses to biotic and abiotic factors, and how to apply current scientific thinking and practices to wildlife biology research and management in globally changing landscapes. Students typically study subjects that include big game tracking, conservation genetics, population and community ecology, plant, invertebrate and vertebrate biology, animal behaviour, marine and freshwater biology, and wildlife management. There is a strong practical field element to the International Wildlife Biology degree, which provides opportunities to study on three continents. You will study a variety of wildlife and habitats in different biological landscapes in southern Africa, which is a unique and compulsory component of the course. You will also have the opportunity to learn industry focused and scientific diving techniques to study coral reefs, and develop your field research skills in the tropical forests of either Asia, Central or South America. There is also a strong focus on developing your practical skills during field trips in the UK.
