Essential Info

The wildlife biology sector is worth billions of dollars to the world
economy and this International Wildlife Biology degree will open a
host of career opportunities, including conservation organisations,
environmental groups and private industry. You will learn about the
biological processes that determine the diversity and distribution of
plants and animals, as well as how to apply science to wildlife
management. Students on the International Wildlife Biology degree get
to research subjects such as genetics, ecology, behaviour, disease,
physiology, land-use changes, fisheries and pollution.

There is a strong practical field element in this wildlife biology
course. You will study in the game parks of South Africa, on coral
reefs and in the tropical forests of Asia, Central or South America,
as well as in the UK.
