We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Our MSc in Ecology and Conservation aims to enable students to gain knowledge and skills to meet their career aspirations, whether in research or as practising ecologists. Our programme will enable you to develop a strong grounding in the theoretical principles of ecology, gain understanding of the applications of ecology in conservation and learn the practical skills required to carry out ecological research and to apply ecological techniques in conservation and other contexts.
The MSc begins with a residential field trip on the stunning north coast of Scotland, practising ecological field methods and undertaking small projects; this provides not only a great learning experience but also a great opportunity to get to know your classmates.
