“I lead the second year trip to the Swiss Alps where we study ecological processes. The environment in the high Alps serves as an amazing and dynamic outdoor laboratory – the students seem to benefit hugely from the trip academically. I’m passionate about teaching and nurturing field and laboratory practical skills. There are all kinds of fascinating applications for the skills gained from our degree, which ties in nicely to competencies required for careers in areas such as habitat management, species survey and identification, fluvial monitoring methods, climate change and Geographical Information Systems (GIS).”
Please note this course map is indicative of the structure of this course and may be subject to change.
A course map contains a list of the individual study units, called modules, that you study to complete your course. Some modules are compulsory, but you can sometimes choose modules outside your core area of study which interest you.
A module is a self contained, individual unit of study. The Module Descriptor provides various details about the module including who the module tutor is, what you will be studying, how you will be assessed and what you will have learned once you have completed the module.
Course Maps and Module Descriptors from previous years can be found in the Course Resources Archive.
