Course content

Learn how to carry out conservation first-hand from our researchers who are applying the same techniques in their own studies around the globe. You’ll conduct your own fieldwork in the Peak District and receive training in experimental design and data collection, equipping you with the key skills to plan and manage your own conservation projects.

During your studies you’ll develop an understanding of how environmental change can impact biodiversity and how effectively managing ecosystems can have a positive impact on both biodiversity and the ecosystem itself.
