UWE open day at Bristol Zoo

So attended Bristol Zoo Saturday to find out about the course I have applied for ~ FdSc Integrated Wildlife Conservation foundation degree in partnership with a working zoo.

The zoo, is the fifth oldest in the world apparently,  has a good learning facility with a little lab, a couple of lecture rooms, a reasonable sized library which they inherited from the BBC NHU & even a little common room with lockers where you can charge your phone !! Small but perfectly formed.

Their carpet tiles, which were very nice, are actually made from old fishing nets ~ a much better use than leaving them in the oceans & their shores.

There are two tutors Sue & Tim. Work placements which can be at the zoo. The first year has a residential trip to Dartmoor, not sure what we would be doing there, but there’s  ponies in Dartmoor, so it’s all good & in the second year a week trip to Cyprus, part of the week spent up in the mountains & part spent working with turtles, how amazing is that & both trips are included in the price of the course ~ just gets better.

They did say it would be hard to work as the course it quite demanding, that could be a problem, being a grown up with bills & stuff to pay.

So now it’s just waiting to hear if I have a place ~ fingers crossed !!
