BSc Ecology and Wildlife Conservation with Foundation is a four-year course, where you will learn about the workings of the natural world, what we need to do to preserve the Earth's biodiversity, and how. Prepare for a rewarding career protecting the world's living organisms. You'll apply knowledge of ecosystems to issues such as habitat management, the biological control of diseases, and the conservation of the world's rarest plants and creatures. Develop species identification and ecology skills through field trips in the UK and abroad, as well as on our award-winning, ecologically diverse campus. You can take part in original research with a potentially global impact, alongside our academics. You can also get involved with local wildlife and conservation, and will be able to become a member of the Royal Society of Biology and apply for Chartered Biologist status following graduation. A year-long professional placement can be carried out between the second and final years. You can also choose to do a short summer placement module.
