Earth’s sixth mass extinction is underway, driven by humans at a rate far faster than that previously achieved through natural environmental changes of the past. This course will provide you with the knowledge and skills to help you contribute to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals for rebalancing life on our planet by halting and reversing biodiversity loss.
Our biology courses are ranked in the top 10 in the UK for student satisfaction, and 11th in the UK for career prospects by the Guardian University Guide 2023.
Examining the interplay between wildlife disease, behaviour, crime and conflict with humans, this course takes a unique lens to the study of conservation and rewilding.
Through sustainable and proportionate approaches to travel, you’ll also have the opportunity to study wildlife conservation biology overseas, progressing from field training in the UK to field research on game reserves in the African savannah and in the tropical rainforests of Borneo.
With a focus on small classes, practical and field learning, you’ll be assessed entirely through coursework to gain a truly representative measure of graduate attributes sought by future employers and for postgraduate study.
