Opportunities to learn from experts on field courses around the world

Dr Sarah Hodge discusses our postgraduate Ecology and Conservation courses.

At the Department of Ecology and Conservation, our degrees are led by some of the UK’s top biologists working in evolution, conservation and ecology, with fieldwork opportunities in the UK and overseas. You will benefit from excellent student-staff ratios, small group tutorials and welcoming and supportive staff.

Camping in the wild African landscape was a unique and intimate experience; we made incredible friendships and lasting memories. It was a life-changing trip! I've also enjoyed learning from some of the world's top marine conservationists. The academics here have amazing connections and I feel lucky to have the opportunity to meet many of these important people in small classroom settings.
