Gain the opportunity to develop relevant skills for employment in the fields of wildlife biology and conservation while studying remotely


The greatest challenge facing conservation biologists today is the preservation of the world’s biodiversity in the face of considerable human demands on space and resources.

By combining the disciplines of wildlife biology and conservation biology, experienced staff will help you develop and apply both the theoretical knowledge and practical skills required to address this challenge.

Our graduates have gone on to work for government agencies and independent wildlife organisations nationally and internationally.

This is a distance learning course, offering you the flexibility to learn at your own pace and place, possibly alongside a role in the conservation industry. This is the first and only degree in Scotland to be accredited by the Chartered Institute of Ecology and Environmental Management (CIEEM).

Course details

This course has been designed in conjunction with employers and professional bodies.

The main focus is on the development of practical skills to equip you to work in this field.

Although it cannot replicate the experience of on-campus students, your attendance and participation on the field course, together with independent field work will help to develop your competence in these essential aspects.


Returning graduates, who share their experience of the work environment each year, have emphasised the importance of the skills gained from the course in their subsequent success.
