This unique course will give you the skills required for success in the highly competitive field of international conservation.
It is taught in partnership with three of the most high-profile conservation practitioners in the UK:
The Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew The Institute of Zoology, the research division of the Zoological Society of London The Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust
You will be immersed in the ongoing conservation work of these organisations, and will be able to choose six-month research project topics linked to their conservation programmes, ensuring that your project contributes to real-world conservation.
The course provides a strong quantitative basis for conservation work, including decision theory, conservation planning, statistical computing and modelling.
By learning to collect, analyse and use both socioeconomic and biological information, you will gain a truly interdisciplinary understanding of the theory and practice of conservation.
By the end of the course you will not only have developed an ability to analyse conservation issues, but you will also know how to put this understanding into action, implementing successful conservation projects.
