Course summary

The current global threat to our ecosystems requires innovative solutions. That's where ecologists equipped with the very latest theoretical and practical knowledge come in. Observing, understanding and predicting natural phenomena and the behaviour of taxa and ecosystems is a vital component in tackling the challenges the planet faces. This course focuses on applying field techniques to survey populations and ecosystems. You'll develop advanced quantitative skills, including statistical modelling, as well as the ability to use a range of recent and emerging geospatial technologies. We'll get you out in the field, making a difference where it really matters. You'll join our thriving community of active learners and develop sought-after skills, turning you into the professionals at the forefront of the sector and reimagining the future with innovative solutions to real-world conservation challenges. You'll study at Brackenhurst Campus - the perfect environment to put theory into practice and develop field techniques right on site. You can undertake a research project using NTU's links with national and international conservation projects. Get hands-on with a range of advanced software and technological tools used in ecological modelling and geospatial analysis, including remote sensing and Geographical Information Systems (GIS). 93% of our postgraduates from the School of Animal, Rural and Environmental Sciences are in work or further study within 15 months of finishing their degrees (of those available for work or study, latest Graduate Outcomes Survey 2020/21).


Modules include: Protected Species Surveying; Applied Population Ecology , Geographical Information Systems (GIS); Applied Spatial Ecology; Remote Sensing and Advanced Geographical Information Systems; Research Methods and Data Analysis; Research Project.
