Hi, I'm from Cardiff and I will be studying Life and Biological Sciences Access Course in September. Once I have passed this course I would like to attend university to gain a qualification to work directly with animals in some way. I ='m just preparing myself so I can choose the right university.
I understand that if I was to take a zoology course I could be come a zoologist, ecologist, conservationist, etc... but would this qualification also help with becoming a zoo keeper or marine biologist?
If not, does anybody have any suggestions to which universities would be better suited. Would I have to have a more specialist course in order to do these jobs?
I understand Swansea university provide a marine biology course, and Cardiff University provide a zoology course.
I'm only asking because animals are a great passion of mine and ideally I would love to be working closely with them in some way.
Ideally I would enjoy either working in a zoo with animals, cleaning enclosures, researching, feeding and looking after them as well as doing some conservation work.
I would like to be working in a marine environment where i could either be helping with animal conservation (turtles, dolphins, whales) or sustaining habitats like the great barrier reef chorals just for example.
Appreciate any help guys.
