Here you can find all lectures, courses and classes in our 'Herpetology' range. This large series of lectures expands on the biological study of reptiles and amphibians. During this course you will learn more about the ecology, anatomy & physiology, reproduction, phylogeny, conservation and study of herpetofauna.

This course includes both theoretical classes and practicals, such as dissections and fieldwork.

Each lecture of this category can be followed separately or together, one after the other or over a longer period of time. Once you have followed all classes in the course, you will receive your certificate in 'Herpetology'.

The Herpetology classes are normally held in English. The handbook that will be used is also in English. If no English-speaking students are present at the time of the lesson, the lesson will still take place in Dutch.
