OVERVIEW
The Graduate Diploma in Ecology combines a selection of honours level units specifically designed to give you a strong training in ecological theory and skills.
The programme focuses primarily in the areas of population ecology and conservation biology, but is sufficiently flexible to enable you to strengthen your knowledge in other areas of ecology. Topics include: 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 responses to natural environments and man-induced stress; the current research agenda in ecology, evolution and conservation; and the potential contribution of integrating sustainable development with biodiversity conservation.
The teaching staff are all members of the Centre for Ecology, Evolution and Conservation (CEEC), a multi-disciplinary centre that comprises researchers in ecology and conservation across the University. Many of the lecturers are internationally recognised researchers in their discipline, and with ‘research-led’ taught units you will benefit from learning at the ‘cutting-edge’ of the discipline. You will also have the opportunity to take one unit in any field of study taught at the University in the form of a ‘free-choice’ unit.
The Graduate Diploma is specifically designed to ensure you will 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, team work, critical writing, reasoning and time management. Courses are taught through a combination of lectures, seminars and field work and assessment is in the form of coursework, presentations, projects and examinations. Throughout the programme you will be expected to undertake search and selection of scientific...

Whilst the University will make every effort to offer the modules listed, changes may sometimes be made arising from the annual monitoring, review and update of modules and regular (five-yearly) review of course programmes. Where this activity leads to significant (but not minor) changes to programmes and their constituent modules, there will normally be prior consultation of students and others. It is also possible that the University may not be able to offer a module for reasons outside of its control, such as the illness of a member of staff or sabbatical leave. Where this is the case, the University will endeavour to inform students.
