Course Summary

This course is designed to give you the ability to use and collect biological records and subject them to critical analysis. Our biological recording courses are developed in association with the Field Studies Council and the Botanical Society of Britain and Ireland. This gives both our teaching and graduate prospects the authority and reputation to appeal across a wide spectrum of organisations. The course gives students the skills and knowledge they need to effectively collect and analyse biological records. The course is ideal for anyone working in ecological consultancy wishing to improve their survey skills, or those interested or involved in biological recording. Our students have an excellent record of promotion and recruitment to jobs in ecology and biological recording, especially those with an emphasis on high-quality field skills and record interpretation. Careers support is available from the moment you join us, throughout your time here, and for up to three years after the completion of your course. We have a range of services available through the School of Science and the Environment and the University Careers Service including dedicated careers and employability advisors.
