About

The Primate Conservation - Apes in the Anthropocene programme at the Oxford Brookes University covers the challenges and research opportunities around Apes in the Anthropocene. 

This includes a tailored module allowing you to focus on your chosen topic within conservation, ecology and cognition.Coursework is innovative and varied. It will provide you with direct training to work in conservation or ecology as a practitioner, advocate or academic.

You'll work with international scholars in primatology, biological anthropology and primate conservation. And gain the experience to research great apes and gibbons, and where relevant, to enact positive change.
