Course summary

Overview

Our award winning MSc in Primate Conservation remains the only course to internationally address pressing issues in primate conservation.

You will cover issues including:

  • habitat loss
  • illegal trade
  • human wildlife conflict issues.

As well as investigate ways to mitigate these threats through:

  • population management
  • intervention
  • education.

Our teaching staff are world leaders. They are all active in primate conservation in the field in Asia, Africa including Madagascar, and South America. Your coursework will be innovative and varied. It will provide you with direct training to work in conservation as a practitioner, advocate or academic.

Our links with conservation organisations and NGOs, both internationally and closer to home, include:

  • Fauna and Flora International
  • TRAFFIC
  • Conservation International.

Whether you're working in the lab, with local conservation groups (including zoos and NGOs), or in the field, you'll find yourself in a collaborative and supportive environment.

Career prospects

You will be joining a supportive global network of former students working across all areas of conservation in organisations from the BBC Natural History Unit through to the International Union for Conservation of Nature.

They work in roles from keeper and education officer in zoos across the UK and North America to paid researchers at institutes of higher education. Many of our students have even gone on to run their own conservation-related NGOs.

Typically about ten to twenty percent of our MSc graduates continue their studies by enrolling on a PhD programme in the UK or abroad.

Students can also exit with Pgdip/PgCert awards.
