About

The Primatology and Conservation programme at the Oxford Brookes University is a research-intensive course. It combines the expertise of anthropologists and biologists.

Overview

In the Primatology and Conservation programme at the Oxford Brookes University, you will be part of an international and multidisciplinary forum. Our aims are to:

  • understand ecology, evolution and conservation issues
  • promote effective action
  • make leading advances in research topics

You will develop the skills, knowledge and confidence to help stop and reverse the devastating destruction of natural habitats. And the loss of the species that live in them.

Career prospects

You will be joining a supportive global network of former students working across all areas of conservation. Our graduates work in a range of organisations, from the BBC Natural History Unit through to the International Union for Conservation of Nature.

They work in roles from keeper and education officer in zoos across the UK and North America to paid researcher at institutes of higher education. Some of our students have gone on to run their own conservation-related NGOs.

General requirements

  • You will normally be required to have, or be expecting, a good honours degree in anthropology, biology, ecology, psychology or an acceptable related discipline.
  • We will consider appropriate credits obtained elsewhere. Accreditation of prior learning (eg a conversion course or an advanced research training course) will be considered on a case-by-case basis by the course manager. Accreditation of prior experiential learning (APEL) will similarly be considered. 
  • However, it must be advised that, because the taught aspect is a key component of the course, credit for prior learning will only be given in exceptional cases.
