With human activity increasingly transforming the planet, ecologists have a vital role to play in monitoring, understanding and reversing environmental degradation to conserve species and ecosystems. It's never been more important to understand what determines the distribution and abundance of different species, how they interact with each other and their environment, and how they respond to threats such as climate change, over-exploitation and habitat destruction.
This fascinating course encompasses many aspects of biology from a unique perspective.You'll explore the mechanisms and functions of ecosystems and the interdependence of the organisms within them. You'll also apply your knowledge outside the lab with exciting field trip options in North Yorkshire, Spain and South Africa.
Our integrated Masters offers you an additional year of specialist training. You'll study advanced topics, undertake a research project and get the chance to study savannah ecology and conservation in Kenya.

Leeds was an amazing experience, probably the best student city in the UK. There’s no better feeling than whiling away the summers in Hyde Park with a cider and some good mates, and the nightlife is incredible – so many different student nights on, and the taxis are dirt cheap. A great bonding experience for all is The Otley Run – a 21 strong pub crawl that takes you into the city and how I forged some of my best friendships. In terms of the Uni, my course was amazing – loads of detailed lectures, secondary materials and passionate lecturers.
