The objective of this course is to prime you for employment as an ecological consultant.
To achieve this, the School of Biological Sciences has teamed up with RSK to deliver a course that precisely provides the skills and knowledge demanded by consultants. Most of the 110 taught credits consist of hands-on and field-based training. In addition to the taught component, you will have the opportunity to embark on a six-month work placement with an ecological consultant. A bursary for this period is provided by the employer.
A total of 110 of the 180 credits of the course are overseen by the consultants and, consequently, this course is unique in the UK. As a result of this synergy, the current course employment rate in the ecology and ecological consultancy sectors is 100%.
