Course Summary:
If you're passionate about protecting our planet, our Royal Society of Biology-recognised course will give you the skills to make a difference. Explore diverse ecosystems in our labs and on international field trips, while studying in a world-renowned centre for wildlife conservation. This course has been validated to include an optional Sandwich Placement year in industry. Individuals, organisations and governments around the world are increasingly concerned about the welfare of our planet and everything on it. This includes our marine environments where many factors, including human behaviour, have left a large number of species at risk. Our course allows you to develop a deep understanding of concerns relating to marine environments, and to look at ways of resolving those concerns. You'll learn about marine biodiversity locally and around the world, and explore conservation ecology, which aims to support, recover and maintain populations and their habitats. If you choose our work placement year option, you could have the opportunity to put your knowledge into practice at the Sea Life London Aquarium. On our field trips you might experience marine biology in Scotland; zoos in the Netherlands; wildlife and ecology in Africa; and diving and marine biology oversea. In your second year you'll take a week-long field trip to north Devon to experience both marine and terrestrial zoology, the costs of which are included in your course fees. There's also a final-year residential at a UK marine biology station, which is included in your course fees. You'll need to pay for any optional trips Cambridge is becoming a world centre for wildlife conservation, with Fauna and Flora International, Birdlife International and the World Conservation Monitoring Centre based here. Throughout the course, you'll have opportunities to attend lectures in the city and visit specialist museums and libraries.

    Very good uni for support, as with everywhere it has its areas for improvement but I have no regrets choosing ARU.

    Best choice I have ever made is coming to university, I was so worried I wouldn't enjoy or like it as I got so bored and fed up with college but it's entirely different! So glad I did it.
