Summary

Designed to meet the needs of conservation professionals specialising in islands, students who wish to remain in academia and conservation practitioners from across the world. Offers substantial fieldwork opportunities, including a module in Sark, Channel Islands and Tenerife, Canary Islands. Provides opportunities to complete the dissertation module in a number of different islands, including Hawaii, Greece, Canary Islands, Madagascar and Mauritius to name a few.

Islands provide some of the planet’s most spectacular examples of biodiversity, making them important repositories of unique species. Yet there are more endangered species and habitats per capita in Small Island Developing States and territories than anywhere else in the world. This one-year taught Masters programme is an innovative course dedicated to the understanding and conservation of the biodiversity of islands throughout the world. This programme is delivered by the Jersey International Centre of Advanced Studies (JICAS) and taught in Jersey, Channel Islands. The programme boasts a significant research component with substantial fieldwork modules in the Channel Islands and Canary Islands, and dissertation options across the globe. A consortium of world-leading academics has come together in Jersey to produce a niche programme of research-led study.
