Course Summary

The MRes Wildlife Conservation course allows you to engage in substantial research and to develop your own independent research skills in the conservation subject area. This course is especially suited to students contemplating PhD study, who wish to gain more research experience before embarking on a doctorate.

You will receive training in all aspects of research: from project design to the use of advanced techniques in data collection and analysis, and the dissemination of research findings through conference presentations and publication. You will work alongside our staff engaging in current research in the department, either in the UK or at overseas locations (subject to any government travel restrictions).

Potential Career PathsThe course prepares you for a role as a conservation professional, whether you continue on to PhD study or enter employment after the MRes. In particular, it gives you opportunities for entry into conservation-type roles in the UK and overseas, where higher-level qualifications are essential for demonstrating subject knowledge and technical competency. Such roles are found in a host of statutory and non-governmental organisations across the wildlife and conservation sector.
