More about Amelia
“The MSc in Biodiversity Conservation is geared towards a career in ecological consultancy, however it also caters for those interested in research. The course teaches both practical and theoretical aspects of conservation, equipping students with vital skills.
“I was initially drawn to the course by the CIEEM accreditation. The course was also recommended to me by several past students. If you are considering a career in ecology or research this course will equip you with important skills necessary for your future.
“I enjoy the practical sessions both on and off campus. In particular, I am looking forward to my research project wherein I will be collecting data on roosting behaviours of Mops bats in Malawi. Nottingham Trent University provides great opportunities for a wide array of research both in the UK and overseas.
“In the short-term I am interested in going to work at an ecological consultancy when I graduate. However, in the future I would like to complete a PhD and go into research. I believe the course so far has equipped me with many skills that will be useful for both career options. The majority of the materials covered are transferable to a wide array of job choices.”
