The Zoological Management programme is made up of two parts: the FdSc in Zoological Management, followed by the BSc (Hons) Level 6 Top-Up in Zoological Management and Conservation. This structure allows a maximum FdSc qualification after two years, or complete three years and gain the BSc; you can even join us from another institution to complete the final year of your BSc. This programme is taught by a wide variety of professionals from research, field conservation and captive animal management backgrounds, who will help develop your knowledge of current zoo conservation practices by embedding you within the industry. Lecturers will bring to life protocols and case studies utilising their first-hand experiences; specialist skills and techniques will also be developed via field trips and workshops. A strong focus is given in the third year to the practices and protocols for managing animals for reintroduction, and the key role collections play in conservation activities. Utilising the skills and knowledge of a variety of industry specialists, together with trips to field sites and collections, you will learn to critically evaluate a variety of conservation translocation projects and display advanced knowledge of the role of ex situ animal collection staff.
