Learn about conservation biology surrounded by an international hotspot for biodiversity, in the science capital of New Zealand, from world leaders in conservation practice.

This Master of Conservation Biology (MConBio) programme is a professional one year Masters drawing on scientific expertise and its application to conservation throughout New Zealand.

We explore the processes of conservation biology and look at practical problems and solutions in examples from New Zealand and internationally. Skills in experimental design, collection and analysis of data and presentation of research results will be gained by students in conservation, ecology and biodiversity. We use examples of internationally renowned best conservation practice being applied. Our studies include theoretical and field based approaches including an extensive range of terrestrial and marine environments that enable a comprehensive study of the important issues in conservation.

A supervisor is not usually required for completion of this programme, as there is no thesis component. The masters programme can be completed in one year. Normal prerequisites for entry into the programme may not apply if students can provide evidence of excellence in their field of study and/or sufficient work or volunteer experience.

The Master of Conservation Biology (MConBio) is designed both for international and New Zealand students who wish to gain a broad understanding of conservation biology. It is an ideal qualification for those seeking employment in a wide range of government, conservation and resource management agencies worldwide. The programme can be undertaken part time and would also suit those in employment looking to increase their capacity. It also prepares students for doctoral studies. A background in ecology is optimal but not necessary for entry into the programme.

New Zealand is widely regarded as a world leader in marine conservation, and Victoria University of Wellington offers the only taught Masters in Marine Conservation in New Zealand.

A unique place to study marine conservation, New Zealand offers abundant access to extensive coastline that reaches from sub-tropical climates in the far north to the remote and windswept Stewart Island in the south. It is home to numerous rare and endemic marine organisms, from tiny phytoplankton to formidable sea lions. The capital city location of Victoria enables us to draw on local and national research, management and conservation agencies, who are actively engaged in our teaching programme. The programme also includes a tropical marine biology field course, which is held in either Australia or Indonesia in alternate years.

With the pressing need for scientists to advise on, implement and manage the growing number of marine protected areas around the world, our graduates are highly sought after and are well placed to work around the world in a number of exciting roles such as:

- research institutes and consultancy firms carrying out marine biology work
- local and national government agencies managing marine conservation and fisheries
- national and international non-governmental organisations and not-for- profit organisations with an environmental focus.

Victoria University is also one of New Zealand’s top research institutions. In the latest national assessment of research excellence we were ranked first in New Zealand for biology.

Two study options are available:

Master of Marine Conservation (MMarCon) is a taught Master's with no thesis component. It is an 12 month programme that may be started in January or June.
Postgraduate Certificate in Marine Conservation (PGCertMarCon), involving 6 months of coursework.
