- We have great links with regional environmental organisations and local employers which will provide you with exciting work placements and career opportunities
“Brookes offers lots of opportunities to get out of the classroom. Our lecturers take us to as many fields/woodland areas in the UK as possible, and it’s always both extremely useful and a fun, hands-on experience.” – Emily Thompson – BSc Animal Biology and Conservation graduate
Why Oxford Brookes?
Being based in Oxford means we are uniquely blessed with nationally important industry, Non-Government Organisations, education and conservation partners, as well as being surrounded by a diverse array of important sites to practice and develop contemporary field skills. This gives you exposure to science and conservation practitioners and employers, as well as helping you develop important field-based skills that are in high demand.
We make every attempt to ensure your learning activities contribute to ongoing and meaningful research, so your learning actively contributes to conservation. Ultimately, our aim is to equip you with important in-demand skills that will make you highly employable and effective conservation ecologists who can tackle the myriad biodiversity and conservation issues we face.
