Program Description:

Why choose this course?

This groundbreaking course, the first of its kind in the UK, is based on the experience of our staff working worldwide in wildlife conservation, developing sustainable livelihoods through the conservation of communities and natural resources. It combines both cutting edge research and practice, with a strong emphasis on the skills required for a better understanding of the natural environment.

You do not necessarily need to have a biological background as you will quickly become aware of the main scientific principles. You'll also gain a strong business knowledge and valuable consultancy experience which provides you with the skills for future employment.

This is a particularly applied course and you will be learning from case studies of work carried out by our teaching staff. Field trips form an integral part of the syllabus and you will complete an independent piece of research, possibly abroad, allowing you to explore the areas that interest you the most. The experience we provide will help you decide what role you wish to play in this expanding and varied industry so you graduate with the skills and confidence to realise your potential.
