About

The Graduate Diploma in Ecology offered by University of East Anglia combines a selection of Honours level modules specifically designed to give you a strong training in ecological and conservation theory and skills.

Overview

While you’ll focus primarily in the areas of population and community ecology and conservation biology, the course is flexible to enable you to strengthen your knowledge in other areas of ecology too. Prepare to explore the functioning of aquatic, marine and terrestrial ecosystems; the importance of community structure, succession and population dynamics; the processes of predation, competition and other plant/animal interactions; population and biodiversity responses to natural environmental disturbance and human-induced stress; the current research agenda in ecology, evolution and conservation; and the potential contribution of integrating sustainable development with biodiversity conservation.

Be inspired by the opportunity to experience first-hand a fascinating array of species, ecosystems and conservation issues, via field-course modules in Ireland, Swaziland and Peru where you will be guided by research and conservation experts.

We’ve also specifically designed the Graduate Diploma in Ecology offered by University of East Anglia to ensure you develop a wide range of transferable skills, which will apply to any career or further graduate study at MSc or PhD level. You will gain skills in communication, information technology, data mining and analysis, fieldwork, teamwork, critical writing, reasoning and time management.

What’s more, you’ll be in the perfect place to study. We have very strong academic expertise in ecology, based around UEA’s Centre for Ecology, Evolution and Conservation (CEEC) – one of the largest groups of its kind in Europe with strong links to major institutions such as the RSPB, BTO, CEFAS and the Cambridge Conservation Initiative.

So whatever scientific career you aspire to, this Diploma is the perfect preparation for further study or the world of work.
