This MSc is designed to equip you to play a key role in developing solutions to the biodiversity crisis in the face of global change. The programme will provide you with opportunities to critically evaluate and apply state of the art quantitative ecological and evolutionary methods, combined with practical field skills, and to tailor communications for a diversity of audiences, from scientists to government.

Courses will draw on a breadth of case studies across different ecosystems, from long-term vertebrate studies to marine microbes. There will be an emphasis on practice, including fieldwork, statistics, and coding.

Becoming a CASE partner

Are you interested in becoming a CASE partner? CASE studentships (formerly known as 'Collaborative Awards in Science and Engineering') provide doctoral students with a first-rate, challenging research training experience within the context of a mutually beneficial research collaboration between academic and non-academic partner organisations. Non-academic partners include those from industry, business, public and the third/civil sectors. If you are interested in pairing with a centre member to provide PhD supervision please contact the DTP manager and we can help you make contact with relevant researchers and guide you through the CASE process.
