BSc (Hons) Applied Zoology (Top-up)

For 2018 start

Cornwall College Newquay LEVEL: 6 Wildlife Conservation & Zoology

This programme is designed for foundation degree graduates wishing to progress to an honours degree. The programme will further develop skills of scientific analysis, communication and evaluation. You will gain an understanding of applied zoology which will enhance your opportunities for employment or postgraduate study.

Optional modules focus on a number of topics including: the conservation and monitoring of wild terrestrial animals, including the possibility of an optional residential field trip to Borneo, South Africa or Honduras; mapping techniques and Environmental Impact Assessment; developing ways in which to communicate ideas and messages about conservation issues to wider society.

The programme includes a compulsory module in research methods which develops analytical and research skills in preparation for the Honours Project, where you explore an area of interest in greater depth.

Through our close connection to a number of conservation and animal welfare organisations, this programme will extend your knowledge of animal biology beyond foundation degree level, with the emphasis of your studies chosen by you.

The programme will apply knowledge in these fields, particularly in South West England, but also internationally. There will also be some formative assessment by mini in-class tests, presentations and group work.
