On our specialist Wildlife Biology course, you’ll have the chance to step into the world of wild animals, to investigate aspects of their taxonomy, evolution, ecology, behaviour and conservation. It’s a course with the flexibility to discover various specialised topics within the field, from habitat management and sustainable management of biological resources, to animal behaviour and conservation. While you’ll find a strong focus on the UK’s wildlife, there’s a significant international element too. Study Wildlife Biology at Manchester Met and you’ll have the opportunity to get involved in field courses and project work across Europe and South America. And, with the option to take a four-year route, you can even spend a year studying with a university overseas – or working on a placement with a relevant company or non-governmental organisation. Throughout the course, you’ll not only develop an in-depth understanding of the theories and thinking behind the study of wildlife, but you’ll also build a set of valuable transferable skills. So, while you’ll hone your laboratory skills by working with our specialist equipment, you’ll also develop the analytical skills useful in the conservation and management of biodiversity. FEATURES AND BENEFITS:

  • Benefit from our extensive research into tropical and local species and habitats.
  • Take the four-year route, spending a year studying overseas in Europe, North America or Australia, or boosting your career prospects with a 12-month placement.
  • Develop practical skills in the laboratory and in the field, both in the UK and overseas – that could include fieldwork in Portugal, Tanzania, Kenya or South America.
  • Learn in high-spec laboratories, including a specialist microbiology and cell/molecular biology lab, a DNA-sequencing lab, specialist animal behaviour facilities with Ethovision and Observer software, invertebrate behaviour, freshwater and terrestrial ecology labs and controlled environment plant growth chambers.
