Thinking of Joining Us?

Interested in learning more about wildlife in stunning locations or thinking of a change of career enhancing your own professional development in Field and Conservation Ecology?

Chloe Griffiths, Lifelong Learning student says:

"The Field Ecology Certificate offers a range of courses which allowed me to choose those based around my personal interests.  I was able to explore a wide variety of species groups, from butterflies and dragonflies to amphibians and flowering plants, and even the life of rock pools.  I recommend this course to anyone who wishes to improve their identification skills, as the quality of teaching has been excellent.”

Remember you don’t have to do the full Certificate (12 modules) but can just dip in to the programme to take individual accredited modules.

Are these courses for me?

Yes, everyone is welcome on our courses.  A Scientific background is not required. The programme gives a wide choice of courses at several venues, offering interesting choices especially to anyone fascinated by the living world and the local environment.

Personal interest

Many of our students take one or two courses every year simply out of personal interest ….. just dip in to the programme and you may become engrossed in the courses on offer. In 2016, nine students who began in this way were awarded Certificates of Higher Education in Field Ecology. Their achievement reflects not only their personal interest but their ability to rise to the challenge and study the natural world through Lifelong Learning courses.
