Naturalist?
Naturalist
Not surprisingly, some aspect of the natural sciences will run through the Naturalists interests - from ecological awareness to nutrition and health. People with an interest in horticulture, land usage and farming (including fish) are Naturalists.

Some Naturalists focus on animals rather than plants, and may enjoy working with, training, caring for, or simply herding them. Other Naturalists will prefer working with the end result of nature's produce - the food produced from plants and animals. Naturalists like solving problems with solutions that show some sensitivity to the environmental impact of what they do. They like to see practical results, and prefer action to talking and discussing.

Summary... header image

The primary focus of the first and second years is to establish and consolidate your competence in understanding and using the Spanish language. If you are a beginner, the language teaching offers an opportunity for you to reach the same standard within a year as those who have studied Spanish previously.

Students are encouraged to spend a year in Spain on an Erasmus exchange at one of the universities with which we have close associations, such as Granada, León, Salamanca, Sevilla, Oviedo, and Barcelona.
