Visit the official programme website for more information


You’ll get insight in the relations between different communities and how they react to environmental stress. Within your two internships, you can choose to focus on fundamental or applied research. Some students choose to perform research at the leading Radboud Institute for Biological and Environmental Sciences (RIBES), while others rather work at a company, water authority or NGO. How do you want to make your contribution to nature?

Future career opportunities after the Conservation and Restoration Ecology specialisation at Radboud University

After graduation, our students quickly take up positions as researchers in universities, research institutes, government departments or companies.
