WHY CHOOSE THIS DEGREE?
What will I learn?
The programme is designed to combine knowledge and research techniques in aspects of animal welfare and behaviour, animal collections management and wildlife management. Work placements are a key feature and benefit from the College’s strong links with a variety of management organisations. Students often choose to do their work experience overseas, with recent placements including reptile research in Indonesia, wildlife monitoring in Peru and big cat tracking in Asia and Africa. More locally, students have learnt from Bristol Zoo Gardens, the New Forest Wildlife Park, Compassion in World Farming, The Donkey Sanctuary and the Entomology Department of the Natural History Museum. Employability is a focus of the final year, with the opportunity to research, investigate, explore and then gain experience in a specific career area of your choice.
Where can I go from here?
You can progress to the MSc in Applied Zoo Biology at University Centre Sparsholt; alternatively there are many MSc and PhD programmes available at other universities. Sparsholt graduates now work in zoological collections, animal charities and conservation both in the UK and overseas.
