About your Course

Ecology allows you to study organisms and the relationship they have with their environment. Including migratory patterns and disruptions to the status quo such as the introduction of a predator or habitat encroachment by humans.

The Ecology Diploma is a CPD course that introduces you to the key principles of ecology and conservation. You will study individual organisms all the way up to entire ecosystems and biomes.

You will learn about populations and the concept of communities, understand the definition of habitats and the difference between terrestrial and aquatic environments.

As you develop your knowledge, you’ll cover the more complex elements of ecology, including the importance of biodiversity and the impact of climate change.

In addition to this, you’ll also discover what we as individuals can do to support conservation efforts ranging from personal action to lower our carbon footprint to helping to remove invasive species.

Upon completion of this course, you’ll have gained a solid grasp of ecology and conservation to build on through further study.  

Getting Started

Enrolling on an online course gives you the flexibility to progress with your learning at a pace that suits you. Allowing you to advance your knowledge of ecology no matter what your schedule is like.

Stonebridge Associated Colleges is a leading UK distance learning provider. Our online courses allow you to learn from anywhere, at any time. Simply log in and begin learning whenever the time is right.

This online course allows you to study around your current commitments, so you can keep working and spend time with your family. You’ll have the ability to finish as quickly as you like, most students qualify within a year.

A dedicated tutor will be assigned to you to advise and guide you throughout. They will also provide constructive feedback on assignments, so you know how well you are performing.

If you have any questions or require support, you will have full access to our student support and tutor teams. There are also flexible payment methods available and you can start the minute you enrol.

The course will include all elements involved in the units. However, assessments are designed so you’re able to complete multiple tasks together where possible. Therefore, you’ll see a different number of assessments in your personal portfolio; you will still cover all units and complete the whole course.

Unit 1: An Introduction to Ecology: Organisms, Populations and Communities

  • Explore the nature of ecology and ecological principles
  • Understand the metabolic rate, growth, reproduction of individual organisms
  • Gain knowledge on evolutionary strategies, dispersal, and socio-biology
  • Discover the various structures of communities and behavioural interactions between members

Unit 2: Habitats and Niches

  • Define the physical make-up of a habitat
  • Understand the principles of a ‘niche’
  • Identify the differences between aquatic and terrestrial habitats

Unit 3: Ecosystems and Biomes

  • Understand what an ecosystem is
  • Learn about the principles of maintaining an ecosystem
  • Explore how ecosystems change over time
  • Know the different types of biomes

Unit 4: Trophic Levels & Nutrient Cycling

  • Understand each of the components of trophic levels
  • Explore the process of nutrient cycling
  • Define pollution and know the various forms

Unit 5: Biodiversity

  • Learn about genetic, species and ecosystem variation
  • Understand the principles of biodiversity
  • Gain an understanding of the threats to biodiversity

Unit 6: Environmental Problems and Protecting the Environment

  • Learn about habitat destruction, invasive species and climate change
  • Understand current conservation efforts and the legal protections put in place
  • Gain an understanding of ecosystem management and restoration  

When studying your Ecology Diploma you’ll be assessed internally by our qualified experts. After each unit you study there will be an assessment for you to complete.

The assessment will allow you to demonstrate your knowledge and understanding of the core elements within that unit.

Once you have successfully completed all your assessments you will receive your certificate of completion.
