University of Reading: Species Identification and Survey Skills
|Institution||University of Reading|

The objective of our MSc Species Identification and Survey Skills programme is to prime you for employment as an ecological consultant.
To achieve this, the School of Biological Sciences has teamed up with RSK to deliver a course that precisely provides the skills and knowledge demanded by consultants. Most of the 110 taught credits consist of hands-on and field-based training, with no written examinations. In addition to the taught component, you will have the opportunity to embark on a six-month work placement with an ecological consultant. A bursary for this period is provided by the employer.
More than half of all credits on this programme are overseen by consultants when you choose to take a placement and, consequently, this course is unique in the UK. As a result of this synergy, the current course employment rate in the ecology and ecological consultancy sectors is 100% (DLHE survey, 2016–17 leavers).
|Level||RQF Level 7|
You are normally required to have a good undergraduate honours degree (2:1) or above (or equivalent from a university outside the UK) in an appropriate subject, but each application will be considered individually.
