Direct experience of animals, plants and microorganisms in their natural habitats continues to be an important part of modern biology.

We run a wide range of courses that provide hands-on experience of modern biological techniques and practical in-field skills. Recent examples include bird-ringing, small mammal trapping, pit fall trapping, microbial analysis and surveying for bats.

Second year students on the Ecology and Conservation module can choose from several specialised, project-based courses that run in a variety of locations throughout the world. Our range of courses includes:

The availability of our field courses is dependent on factors such as choice of degree programme, student demand and advice from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.

Residential field courses that take place outside of Cardiff incur additional costs, however, these are partially offset by contributions the School makes to the courses’ running costs.
