Course summary

This course provides you with broad research training and first-hand experience in conducting high-quality research in ecology, evolution and conservation. You will be taught by active researchers throughout the department and, as part of your research projects, will have the opportunity to join the research groups of these internationally recognised experts. We concentrate on using inter-disciplinary approaches and advancements in research tools to address your research project questions. The students can take advantage of the international connections and collaborations we have with other institutions and companies, as well as applying science to practical conservation through working with conservation organisations and research institutes.

The course will equip you with the necessary skills to proceed to a PhD and establish a career in academia, or to pursue a research position with government and non-governmental organisations that are engaged in research to protect biodiversity. You will complete six weeks of taught modules to learn skills that can be used as part of the research projects, followed by two five-month research projects on topics of your choice. The course offers a wider range of instructions across a large set of research areas, allowing you to gain a clear insight into your own research interests from among current research topics.

This MRes course hits the ground running with a focus on independent research which allows you to specialise in your existing research interests.
