Delivered at Bristol Zoo, this one-year top-up course enables FdSc Integrated Wildlife Conservation graduates to upgrade to a three-year BSc degree.
Why study Integrated Wildlife Conservation?
Conserving biodiversity and avoiding the mass extinction of species are huge global challenges. We need wildlife conservationists who can use their skills and scientific knowledge to help tackle these issues and explore new approaches to conserving wildlife. By looking at the nature of global biodiversity, and the effects of habitat loss and climate change, you can equip yourself with the knowledge and tools you need to make a difference in this field.
Why UWE Bristol?
BSc(Hons) Integrated Wildlife Conservation one year top-up has been designed to provide an opportunity for those who have already completed a foundation degree in wildlife conservation to top up to a full BSc (Hons) degree. In particular, it provides a progression route for graduates of the FdSc Integrated Wildlife Conservation degree, which is taught at Bristol Zoo gardens, and gives you unique access to the zoo's facilities and expertise.
The degree explores wildlife conservation issues at local, national and global levels, mixing theory with practice. You'll delve into the relationship between wildlife and society, and consider the impact of human activities on the living world. By exploring the steps that can be taken to alleviate biodiversity decline, you'll gain the skills you need for a career in conservation.
We are pleased to inform you that Bristol Zoo Gardens plans to expand as they move to their Wild Place in the next few years. This relocation will enable their team to develop future facing wildlife conservation projects and education facilities. This puts UWE Bristol in the unique position of being co-creators of this state-of-the-art facility, providing exciting new opportunities for you as a wildlife conservation student.
Where can it take me?
You'll be well prepared to go into a wide range of jobs. You could work in national and international wildlife conservation, conservation consultancy, media and wildlife filmmaking, conservation campaigning, wildlife and enterprise, or wildlife conservation research. As a science graduate, your skills will be highly valued and you could go into a range of non-science graduate positions.
