Conservation and Biodiversity

This programme covers both fundamental and applied aspects of the subject with the flexibility to pursue those areas of most relevance for student's professional development. There is extensive input from practising conservationists from a wide range of collaborating governmental and non-governmental organisations. Substantial field work opportunities in the UK and Africa.

Entry requirements

Normally at least a 2.1 Honours degree or equivalent in Biology or a relevant science subject is required, although a 2.;2 with relevant experience will be considered. Applicants from non-science backgrounds will be considered, provided that the 1st degree contained an empirical component, and/or if the applicants have had work experience in the field of conservation/wildlife management.

Assessment methods

Half the total assessment is based on the long-term research project and associated items (literature review, oral presentation). The remaining credit points come from combined continuous assessment of material in programme modules.
