About this course

This Diploma is offered In recognition of the importance of conservation and the environment to the future of land-based activity. It comprises the first 2 years of the BSc (Hons) course and will suit those applicants who perhaps have work or volunteer experience and feel that the Foundation Degree is not appropriate to them but who cannot commit to more than 2 years of learning. The course along with the others in the suite has been developed in consultation with the sector and is focused on producing future Conservation professionals. Content includes wildlife identification and survey methods, ecology, habitat management and other subjects designed to give the student an understanding of how landscapes and biodiversity are being considered by modern conservation managers.
