This four-year version of the BSc Conservation Biology and Ecology degree includes a year studying abroad, between the second and final years. In this third year you study in a university with which we have established links, for example in North America or Australia, and credit for this academic work counts towards your degree at Exeter.
Our BSc Conservation Biology and Ecology offers more direct field experience than any other Ecology course in the UK, in locations from Cornwall to Africa*. You'll gain knowledge and skills that are essential for working conservationists and ecologists, including wildlife identification and data handling. In the first year, we take full advantage of Cornwall's rich landscapes with many one-day field trips around the South West Peninsula. In the second year, wider experience comes as a result of a variety of field courses in the UK and Europe, while in year three there are opportunities to go overseas. In all these locations we teach vital identification skills and census techniques while at the same time studying local ecology and conservation issues.
The degree is delivered by internationally-recognised, research active staff in the Centre for Ecology and Conservation on our Penryn Campus in Cornwall. The Centre hosts a large and thriving group of scientists who work at the cutting edge of research on conservation and ecology and run field research projects across the globe, from Cyprus to Australia.
