Throughout your first year of study, you will cover a range of topics such as an introduction to environmental science and animal form and function, along with enhancing your numeracy skills through practical data handling and analysis. Through hands-on sessions in our licensed zoo, you will explore key principles in animal husbandry, including animal health and welfare, enclosure design, nutrition and feeding.
You will also study vital scientific principles in the animal sciences such as cell types, genetic principles and inheritance, working in our dedicated science laboratories. Your second, third and fourth years will cover the same modules as the BSc (Hons) Wildlife Conservation and Ecology.
Please note: Students are based at Reaseheath for the duration of this course. For students wishing to live in, you will live in Halls of Residence at Reaseheath College during your first year.
As a Higher Education student you will have two main costs to meet; your tuition fees and living costs.
Our full-time tuition fees for UK and EU students, entering University, can be found on the student finance page. These fees are charged for each academic year of a course and are set by the college annually.
If you are an international student or for the latest information on tuition fees visit the student finance page on our website.
Additional costs may include the purchase of suitable outdoor wear for practical activities, both on our Animal Centre/Zoo and out around the wider campus. This may include overalls and steel toe-capped work boots, walking boots, wellington boots, waterproof/windproof coat, waterproof trousers. Additionally, students may wish to purchase a pair of binoculars to assist them with species identification whilst undertaking practicals. A full suggested kit list is available upon request.
Students will be offered the chance to engage in both domestic and overseas learning opportunities with which to enhance their classroom-based learning experience. Here, students will have the option to undertake overseas study for academic credit in year 2 of the programme, or simply participate for experiential purposes. These may include opportunities to study zoological collections in Europe, but also undertaking conservation field courses within locations such as Southern Africa, South America and the UK.
The main emphasis placed on these field courses is the development of professional, industry relevant skills and the application of students’ knowledge in a novel, stimulating, yet challenging environment. Costs associated with the field courses range from £500 – £1200 (UK), and between £2,200 – £3,000 (South America & Southern Africa). Please note that precise pricing of all field courses is subject to change, pending availability and recruitment.
