: Hello there

: I am a serious amatuer herpetologist with eight years' experience in the popular groups of reptiles.

: I am looking for a place/means to complete any formally recognised course/qualification in herpetology or herp care (or failing that ANYTHING involving herps and education LOL) WITHIN THE UNITED KINGDOM.

: I realise that this is a predominantly American forum, but am at my wits' end trying to find a source of information over here.

: You see, I am at home after losing my job following kidney surgery complications, and so now I am better I have decided to follow my lifes' dream and pursue my herpetological passion formally.

:
: I was recently made aware of GNVQ courses by Proteus Reptile Trust but cannot afford the fees immediately due to being out of work.

: I may pursue a Bachelor's Degree in Biological Science, but would rather go right for the jugular as it were, with a herpetology module of study.

:
: Can anyone PLEASE help me?

: Thanks in advance for your time and assistance in this matter.

: Kind regards,

The University of Wales Bangor has a herpetology module in the third year of its biological sciences courses. I think this is the onyl academic course in the country. There are three members of academic staff (I am one) who specialize in reptiles and so you would have a good opportunity to do herp-related topics in other modules and also to do your Honours project on herps. See http://sbsweb.bangor.ac.uk for more details
