Natural history is the study of organisms and the environments in which they live. This is a diverse and exciting subject that covers the study of animals, plants and their environments, along with earth and environmental sciences. You’ll study diﬀerent organisms – how they are identified, their life history, relationships, behaviour and conservation. You'll also understand the processes that shape our land, coastlines and climate. You’ll explore the diversity of life, wildlife management for conservation, animal biology, geo-sciences and environmental survey skills. Wildlife photography and film-making is another exciting part of the Natural History course. You’ll gain skills in still photography and film production. Our Natural History course has a strong practical field element for you to gain key skills in a range of environments. Presently, students go on field courses to Pembrokeshire, Portugal and Iceland, and on the optional Natural History expedition to Botswana where they learn tracking skills and 4x4 driving. The Natural History course is based in our Glyntaff campus. USW Glyntaff is surrounded by green open spaces. Our students say they love the relaxed atmosphere and beautiful views. Home to our health, nursing, police, sport and science students, Glyntaff has state-of-the-art facilities including the latest aboratories. You will also find a library, two cafes and a free regular shuttle bus to USW Treforest.
