Course summary

The four-year MSci Conservation Biology and Ecology programme mirrors the BSc Conservation Biology and Ecology programme during the first three years, and includes an additional fourth year during which you will undertake two projects. Both will be focused on a specialised area aligned with one of our leading research groups, and it is expected that one of these projects will be carried out in partnership with an external organisation. The remainder of your time will be spent on a two-week intensive field course in which your scientific field-research, debating and presentation skills will be further developed.Our Conservation Biology and Ecology degrees offer more direct field experience than any other Ecology course in the UK, in locations from Cornwall to Africa. You’ll gain knowledge and skills that are essential for working conservationists and ecologists, including wildlife identification and data handling. In the first year, we take full advantage of Cornwall’s rich landscapes with many one-day field trips around the South West Peninsula. In the second year, wider experience comes as a result of a variety of field courses in the UK and Europe, while in year three there are opportunities to go overseas. In all these locations we teach vital identification skills and census techniques while at the same time studying local ecology and conservation issues.The degree is delivered by internationally recognised research active staff in the Centre for Ecology and Conservation on our Penryn Campus in Cornwall. The Centre hosts a large and thriving group of scientists who work at the cutting edge of research on conservation and ecology and run field research projects around the world, from Cyprus to Australia.Why study Conservation Biology and Ecology at the University of Exeter?•led by some of the UK’s foremost biologists working in evolution, conservation, and ecology•field work opportunities in the UK and overseas•close links with a wide range of conservation organisations•state-of-the-art research facilities•graduate with outstanding employment prospects
