MSc Biodiversity, Conservation and Nature Recovery

The next decades will be pivotal in reversing the current trend of biodiversity loss and expanding and restoring degraded ecosystems, while ensuring people and nature are resilient and able to adapt to a changing climate.

The aim of MSc Biodiversity, Conservation and Nature Recovery is to develop advanced interdisciplinary understanding of the interconnections between the natural environment, ecosystems, human health, and wellbeing. On completion of this MSc programme, graduates should be equipped with the necessary conservation skills, interdisciplinary outlook, and in-depth subject knowledge for employment in conservation-related subjects.

The programme offers evidence-based, practice-based, and interdisciplinary modules to prepare you for careers in the public, private, and third sector, in ecology and conservation. Knowledge is drawn from a number of disciplines including ecology, conservation, environmental, and social sciences. The major focus will be assessing the impact of human-induced ecosystem degradation and biodiversity loss from local to global scales, while exploring nature recovery and nature-based solutions as new and potentially transformative approaches to restore biodiversity. Particular emphasis will be put on understanding the interconnections underpinning these complex challenges and identifying solutions.
