About Wildlife Conservation with Foundation Year at Liverpool John Moores University

About the Foundation Year

The Foundation Year is ideal if you have the ability to study for a degree but don’t have the qualifications to enter directly onto the Wildlife Conservation honours degree programme. It provides you with a strong scentfic underpinning which will prepare you for the rest of your degree. Once you pass the Foundation Year you will progress directly onto the first year of the honours degree. If you are a full-time UK student, you will qualify for student financial support for the full duration of your course (subject to eligibility criteria).

About the BSc (Hons) Wildlife Conservation degree

With greater public awareness of the environment and increasing concern about the exploitation and destruction of wildlife resources, this BSc degree looks at the causes of biodiversity loss, provides underpinning scientific knowledge into biodiversity loss and develops practical and sustainable ways to halt and reverse it.

During the course you will develop your knowledge of ecology, genetics, evolution, animal behaviour and environmental sustainbility and apply this knowledge to develop practical solutions to conservation problems and conservation practice. You will also develop practical skills, such as animal and plant identification, wildlife surveys and conservation technology, recording animal behaviour, creating Habitat Management Plans and Geographical Information Systems (GIS). These are the skills and knowledge you need to work in a professional conservation organisation.

A key feature of this programme is the opportunity it presents to observe wildlife first hand in natural habitats. There are a large number of UK-based fieldtrips throughout the course, as well as an international field trip at level 5, which is currently to Tenerife. You will also have the opportunity to go on an international trip at level 6, which is currently to Costa Rica to study cloud forest and coral reef habitats.

You will also have the opportunity to undertake a short (4 to 6 week) placement and/or 12-month sandwich placement with an organisation in the UK or overseas.

Notes about fees for this course

The fees quoted are those for the 2018/19 year as information for 2019/20 is not yet available. The Department for Education (DfE) have recently announced that they will be freezing tuition fees for the 2019/20 academic year. However, this is still subject to the normal parliamentary approval. Once 2019/20 fees are confirmed we will update our web pages accordingly.
