At least an upper 2nd Class UK Honours degreee (or international equivalent) in a subject such as ecology, biology, zoology, botany, animal behaviour or environmental sciences is normally required; applicants from different academic backgrounds or without formal qualifications - but with equivalent experience, for example, having worked in the field of bird conservation for some years - will also be considered.
Modules may include: Avian biology and conservation; statistics and research design; practical techniques (including field course); project option units; countryside management; species conservation; genetics of populations; zoos and conservation; behavioural biology.
You will be assessed through coursework, formal examinations, reports, critical reviews, data handling practicals and presentations. Formal teaching begins in October and finishes with the field courses in mid-May or mid-July. Student research projects are usually completed by the end of September.
