Course content

This course is a unique collaboration, jointly delivered by Southampton and Marwell Wildlife, a conservation charity with a zoological park as part of its conservation profile. It is the only wildlife conservation programme currently available in the UK to offer such a high degree of interaction between a university and a conservation organisation. Our aim is to produce individuals with the skills, experience and academic credentials required for employment as conservation biologists.

The MRes is a full-time course, with no provision for a part-time option at this time. Tuition fees will depend on which research project is undertaken.
