Study type Taught


Aquatic ecosystems and species are under intense anthropogenic threats. These threats directly affect services such as sustainable fisheries, drinking water or ecosystem resilience. To adequately respond to these 21st century challenges and conserve these goods and services, a fundamental understanding of the biodiversity and ecosystem processes is needed, as without knowledge there can be no application or effective management.

Considering both freshwater and marine ecosystems and species, we have designed a programme to equip you with the interdisciplinary practical skills and theoretical understanding to pursue a career in aquatic research, consultancy or environmental protection, and give you a good understanding of applying scientific understanding to science policy.

This programme balances the latest in ecological theory, conservation biology and evolutionary biology with practical application. If you take the Postgraduate Certificate rather than the MSc in Freshwater and Marine Ecology, you will take four taught modules (15 credits each) over one term.
