Nothing beats going out into the wild! Live projects and field trips, both in the UK and overseas, will be at the heart of your studies. There are field trip opportunities, both in the UK and internationally, to students across our biological sciences, zoology, marine biology and wildlife conservation courses. These memorable experiences will help to develop your practical skills, so your can make a difference once you graduate.
Through a series of field trips to zoos, animal parks and wetlands, as well as the chance to
travel to a tropical rainforest, you will gain a real-world context and begin your conservation
journey in an unforgettable way.
You may also have the chance to volunteer for various wildlife or zoological organisations. In previous years our students have volunteered at sites such as the Orangutan Tropical Peatland Project in Borneo; Alberta Tourism, Parks and Recreation in Canada; Serra dos Órgãos National Park in Brazil or closer to home at Blackpool Zoo or Yorkshire Wildlife Park.
