University of Exeter
The BSc (Hons) Intercalated Conservation Biology and Ecology offers more direct field experience than any other Ecology course in the UK, in locations from Cornwall to South Africa. This hands-on experience will provide skills that are essential for working conservationists and ecologists, including wildlife identification and data handling. It is delivered by internationally recognised, research-active staff in the Centre for Ecology and Conservation on the Penryn Campus.
The Centre hosts a large and thriving group of scientists who work at the cutting edge of research on conservation and ecology and run field research projects across the globe, from Cyprus to Australia. The programme utilises expertise in the Centre to provide you with the skills, concepts and experience to understand all aspects of conservation and ecology. The programme encourages an interdisciplinary approach and you will be exposed to a wide range of theoretical and practical techniques used to study animal biology, conservation and ecology.
Intercalated programmes are only available to selected students following a medical degree at the University of Exeter Medical School or another medical, veterinary or dental degree-granting institution and who are taking an intercalating year during their programme of study (see University Regulations Governing Honours Degrees, Regulation 1.2, Section 5).

• All offers made will be conditional on the student passing the academic year in which they apply.
