Testimonials from past and current students.
A fantastic opportunity to learn from and share experiences with a variety of tutors and fellow students from all over the world.
There is no other course of study that I know of where veterinarians, from all over the world, can discuss important issues related to conservation without leaving their homes. It has helped me to engage government officials to influence their decisions related to important conservation topics as well as influencing the public to consider conservation as a priority.
Gave me a new perspective on what a veterinarian can achieve in conservation.
The range of assessed assignments increased my confidence in critiquing research papers, peer-viewing articles, producing presentations and developing protocols for veterinary procedures for conservation medicine purposes, such as the chemical immobilization of free-ranging wildlife species.
The lecturers were very friendly and accessible and I felt as if I was connected to the university and the year group much more than I thought would be possible for an online programme. Using the skills I learned from the course and the multi-disciplinary approach promoted by the course, I was able to write a proposal for a conservation project than won an award and I am now implementing that project.
