Engaging deeper thinking
We strongly believe that a field trip to one of our zoos can help to deepen students’ knowledge and provide a real insight into the types of careers available once they’ve graduated.
We offer a range of thought-provoking, challenging and immersive lectures and workshops that engage students on a deeper level. Taught by experienced industry professionals, these sessions will give your students the chance to put theory into practice in an inspirational setting.
Choose from our list of core topics below or speak to our team to develop a tailored experience for your group. Popular topics include:
- Conservation Biology
- Ethics and Welfare
- Human Geography
- Careers Guidance
- Communicating Science
In addition to lectures and workshops, we can also offer multi-day residential programmes across our sites. This is an ideal way to embed theory into practice and to provide valuable professional development opportunities for your students.
Our 10-month voluntary research placement programmes are an excellent opportunity for students to gain valuable skills in the areas of ecology, conservation and animal behaviour. The placements are designed to work within university undergraduate industrial year programmes, and provide an excellent footing for professions in zoos and conservation.
