Wildlife Conservation

This programme is a unique collaboration, jointly delivered by Southampton and Marwell Wildlife. Marwell Wildlife is a conservation charity with a zoological park as part of its conservation profile. It undertakes a broad portfolio of conservation research including managing individuals and populations of threatened species and restoration of endangered wildlife and ecosystems. The course aim is to produce individuals with the skills, experience and academic credentials required for employment as conservation biologists. To provide an immersive experience for students and to ensure we have the scope to cover all that the MRes encompasses, the course is based on a full calendar year. Tuition fees will depend on which research project is undertaken.

Entry requirements

This course is designed for graduates and postgraduates of biology, zoology and ecological disciplines (2.1 or 1st Class degree), and those currently already working at conservation organisations. Shortlisted applicants will be interviewed by representatives from the Centre for Biological Sciences and Marwell Wildlife.
