Course structure

The Ecology and Conservation MRes is typically completed as a full-time, one-year degree.

The research project is central to the course and allows students to work at the forefront of the discipline to advance their knowledge of research methods and ecological principles. Students design their own project under the supervision of one or more members of the ecosystems and environmental management research group.

A taught module completes the core elements of the course, plus option modules in topics that support interests and career aspirations.
