Spring and summer teaching
This module requires you to carry out an independent, original, in-depth project in conservation biology research or practical conservation, in consultation with an academic supervisor.
It will involve bespoke, project-specific training in practical skills, the generation of hypotheses, the production of data, statistical analysis and interpretation of results, and the presentation of results in a seminar and a dissertation.

Contact hours and workload
This module is approximately 600 hours of work. This breaks down into about 8 hours of contact time and about 592 hours of independent study. The University may make minor variations to the contact hours for operational reasons, including timetabling requirements.
This module is running in the academic year 2021/22. We also plan to offer it in future academic years. However, there may be changes to this module in response to COVID-19, or due to staff availability, student demand or updates to our curriculum. We’ll make sure to let our applicants know of material changes to modules at the earliest opportunity.
It may not be possible to take some module combinations due to timetabling constraints. The structure of some courses means that the modules you choose first may determine whether later modules are core or optional.
