This taught Masters degree is designed for those wishing to pursue a career in conservation management or ecological consultancy, professions which increasingly require postgraduate qualification for establishment and progression. The course puts a high emphasis on practical experience in managing habitats and species and in developing biological identification skills for plants, invertebrates and vertebrates. You will undertake over 25 days of fieldwork, including a residential course, and carry out a 20-day work placement in a conservation organisation or ecological consultancy. These activities are allied to a clear theoretical framework underpinning ecology and conservation practice. We welcome applications from recent graduates, experienced consultants, conservation workers or those seeking a career change.
You should have a degree equivalent to UK first-class or second-class honours (2:2 or above). No specific subjects are required.
International students require IELTS 6.5, with a score no lower than 6.0 in each individual component, or an equivalent English language qualification.
