Course content

The United Nations recognizes that ‘Biodiversity is a common concern of humankind’ (United Nations 2010). Yet, threats to Biodiversity and ecosystems are at a record high and it is now widely recognized that our planet can no longer support the current pressure imposed by our society’s unsustainable ways. There is global recognition for the need to employ professionals in the field of conservation science to take on our planet’s growing environmental challenges.

This course aims to train the future generation of conservation leaders that will work towards a sustainable future for humans and wildlife, in line with the UN Convention on Biological Diversity 2011-2020 Vision: “Living in Harmony with Nature”. Highly qualified, research-active staff within the well-respected School of Environment and Life Sciences will teach you. You will learn cutting-edge skills and use tools necessary to tackle complex issues surrounding our planet’s current Biodiversity crisis.
