Program overview

On this course you’ll you study the enormous variety of animal life on earth and discover the answers to these and many other searching questions. You will explore related aspects of animal biology, including animal behaviour, ecology, evolution, cell biology and physiology, as well as applied aspects of animal conservation and management. Fieldwork will be an essential part of your training. In addition to fieldwork in Scotland, we run two optional fieldtrips in Year 4. One course is situated in southern Europe (for example, in the French Cévennes Mountains, a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve, and the second course is based at Gabon’s Lopé National Park, in the heart of the western Congo Basin.
