Expenses, accommodation, working etc.


Although firmly grounded in animal sciences, as a work-related degree the BSc (Hons) Animal Conservation and Biodiversity programme does not restrict successful graduates in their eventual choice of career. The high quality, broad-based, training in animal conservation enables graduates to move into the many career paths which are found within the fields of both domestic and wild animal conservation.

As a student at Hadlow College, you have the opportunity to work in one of the best animal units in the UK and be supported by a team of industry experts who are active within the industry and in conservation research.

Throughout the programme there will be opportunities to see a variety of different management practices through a range of field trips. These include overseas study tours which, in the past, have included such destinations as Costa Rica, Zambia, and South Africa. In addition, students enjoy access to Jersey Zoo with the Durrell Wildlife Park.
