Taught by research-active academics, our BSc (Hons) Animal Behaviour and Conservation degree has been designed to give a wide-ranging experience for students with real-world relevance. A wide range of field trips and laboratory work has been integrated into the course, allowing students to practice and reflect on their applied knowledge and analytical skills.
The first year of our animal behaviour and conservation course involves core biology, animal behaviour and ecology modules to get everyone up to speed. We’ll introduce key discipline-specific concepts and you’ll develop your academic and research skills.
In the second and third year you begin to apply your knowledge at a deeper level of animal behaviour and conservation, focusing on specific behavioural and conservation techniques and applying these to current case studies. This builds on the skills you’ve already learned and grows your knowledge in specialised areas.
Study animal behaviour and conservation at Manchester Met and you’ll have the option to study in Europe, North America or Australasia, giving you the opportunity to expand your horizons and spend the third year at a university overseas. Alternatively, you have the option of spending your third year working on a placement in industry or at a relevant non-governmental organisation (NGO), before returning to Manchester for the final year of your course.
Please note that field trips, study abroad and placement years may be subject to national and international travel restrictions.
