We have access to a diverse and exciting array of ecological resources to use in our research and teaching. Fieldwork allows us to illustrate concepts, practice techniques and provide students with direct ‘hands on' experience of biological systems.
Students can also get involved in extracurricular conservation or wildlife related activities to further their interests and training e.g. the UEA bird ringing group.
The campus not only provides a beautiful environment in which to live and work but also contains a wide range of different ecological habitats and ecosystems to explore.
