The course is highly competitive, and we select people with a strong commitment to a career in international conservation. We don't ask for specific academic qualifications in particular subjects, beyond Imperial's minimum academic standards for an MSc. Instead we are looking for highly motivated and committed people who can show either substantial field experience in a relevant area or evidence of academic ability (ideally both).
