Ecology focuses on the interactions between organisms and their environment. Knowledge of these interactions underpins our understanding of how wildlife will respond to current and future environmental threats, including pollution, climate change, invasive species and habitat destruction. Our mission is to train the next generation that will respond to these issues, identifying solutions and conserving biodiversity into the future.   

Aberystwyth is the place to study Ecology because we have:

  • Passionate teaching staff that conduct research in all areas of ecology and in different parts of the world.
  • A focus on field skills and learning by experience.
  • Direct access to some wonderful locations and habitats, including the Dyfi National Nature Reserve, and Snowdonia and Brecon Beacons National Parks
  • International field courses and training opportunities
