Conserving Nature: World-Class Research and Teaching


Studying Supported by DICE

Programmes and pathways in Conservation offered by the School of Anthropology and Conservation are primarily taught by members of DICE. Founded in 1989, the DICE mission is to break down the barriers between the natural and social sciences in order to inform progressive approaches to conservation.

DICE is committed to training a new, interdisciplinary generation of conservationists who think innovatively about the challenges that lie ahead using state of the art teaching methods, project supervision and wide-ranging access to resources. In the most recent national Teaching Quality Assessment, the School of Anthropology and Conservation teaching quality was judged to be excellent.

Undergraduate students benefit from programmes which are both theoretical and practical giving them opportunities to put into practice what they have learnt. The programmes include numerous field trips as well as the opportunity to conduct a research project either in the UK or abroad.

Postgraduate students receive a unique experience at DICE, as DICE students join a global network of conservationists who are conducting projects with significant impact across the world. The focus of our taught provision is to train and equip conservationists with the skills they need to manage projects, engage with local communities and conceive of creative solutions to biodiversity conservation problems.
