About Wildlife Conservation, FdSc - at Nottingham Trent University (NTU)

This course offers the opportunity to study the scientific principles of animal function and behaviour and to apply wildlife surveying and monitoring skills. You will experience conservation management at first hand using the diverse habitats at Brackenhurst Campus.

On successful and satisfactory completion of this course you will have the opportunity to progress on to our one-year BSc (Hons) Wildlife Conservation and Management (top-up) course. This means you can obtain a full honours degree in just three years.

Why choose this course?

The degree takes a more vocational approach to learning than the BSc (Hons) degree. It puts more emphasis on your development and learning through practical experiences. You will apply your knowledge to various wildlife conservation situations around the picturesque Brackenhurst estate, which is an ideal learning environment for this course.

  • Industry representatives have worked with us to develop this course.
  • You will take part in UK and overseas field trips, putting your knowledge into practice.


You will have the opportunity to help with projects such as:

  • great crested newt surveying
  • bird ringing
  • small mammal trapping.

We also have facilities such as the Bird Hide and Animal Unit for studying wildlife in natural and constructed habitats.
