With an extra year of integrated study at foundation level, this course opens up opportunities in the sciences if you don't hold the required scientific A-levels or equivalent qualifications, want to change career or simply feel you want to explore the options offered by university-level science before deciding on your specific pathway. The foundation year gives you the support, knowledge and skills you need. On successful completion, you can progress to the Ecology and Conservation BSc(Hons). There is a strong emphasis on applied learning, with fieldwork opportunities throughout the course and optional field trips to international locations such as South Africa and the Mediterranean, as well as local areas. You will develop your practical skills in our specialist labs and benefit from research-informed teaching from internationally-recognised staff.
