Study type Taught


As humans we have a responsibility to help protect the earth’s wildlife not only for ourselves but for generations to come. With our MRes Wildlife Conservation programme you will develop the knowledge and skills needed to become a conservation biologist, helping you to protect the future of our wildlife.
This collaborative programme is jointly delivered by the University of Southampton and Marwell Wildlife, an action orientated conservation organisation, dedicated to the conservation of biodiversity and other natural resources.
You will be taught by active conservation biologists, and undertake an 8-month research project, feeding into the wider ongoing research at Marwell, which has real-life conservation implications. Unlike other institutions you will have the opportunity to highlight 3 projects you have an interest in and will be assigned to a project based on your preferences before starting the programme. Project topics include:
• Species Integrity
• Ecosystem Function
• People and Nature
You will also have the opportunity to undertake a field course to Kenya, as part of the taught component of the programme
