Program description

Awarded by: University of Cumbria

As part of an academic collaborative partnership with The University of Cumbria, this Foundation Degree provides an opportunity to develop a deeper understanding of UK wildlife rescue, rehabilitation and conservation management, based in our unique Animal Rescue Centre.

Students will work with experienced teaching staff and, our qualified veterinary team, to research presenting wildlife cases and assist with their proposed rehabilitation plans and eventual release. Alongside this you will understand the broader context of working with wildlife including ecology, behaviour, conservation, legislation, ethics, human pressures on wildlife, practical care and fieldwork skills.

Foundation Degrees are intermediate level higher education qualifications. They emphasise work-based learning, and concentrate on the development of personal and professional development and employability skills including communication, teamwork, problem solving, the application of number and the use of information technology.

On successful completion of the Foundation Degree, students may also have the opportunity to progress onto The University of Cumbria BSc (Hons) Animal Conservation Science Degree, based at the University of Cumbria in Ambleside and, subsequently seek work with wildlife or environmental organisations.
