Course options

Course summary

This course is an integrated foundation degree, where you'll progress onto our BSc (Hons) Wildlife Conservation course, once you successfully complete your foundation year. Our integrated foundation degrees offer a unique gateway to our BSc courses for those who currently don't meet the degree-level entry criteria. The foundation year acts as a launch pad, supporting you with the transition to university learning. Anticipate a year filled with the development of robust study skills, increased confidence in tackling intricate problems, and the cultivation of independent learning. Rest assured, by the end of this transformative year, you'll emerge well-prepared for the exhilarating challenges that await you at degree level. About the BSc course You will learn about the theory and practice of species conservation through a range of lectures, practicals and fieldwork combining the scientific principles of animal function and behaviour with conservation biology. You’ll explore current areas of global concern, including the effects of habitat loss on wild species, alongside approaches to their conservation. This course will give you sound knowledge of ecological processes and theories while developing the skills to identify, monitor and manage wild animals and their habitats. Our 200-hectare rural campus offers a unique learning environment where you will put theory into practice and gain hands-on ecology and conservation experience. We utilise this outdoor classroom in many of our modules, for example, by undertaking species and habitat surveys across the campus. You will be taught by lecturers that have vast experience in the conservation sector and in ecological research.
